The first pro-Kentucky predictions from a national recruiting analyst is in following five-star wing Keion Brooks’ visit to Lexington this past weekend.
National recruiting expert Andrew Slater logged a pick for the Wildcats on Brooks’ 247Sports Crystal Ball page early Tuesday morning. His prediction also moved Kentucky into a tie with Indiana for the favorite status on Brooks’ Crystal Ball page. Later in the day, 247Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer changed his pick from Indiana to UK, pushing the Cats past the Hoosiers.
Brooks took an unofficial visit to UK for Saturday’s game against No. 1 Tennessee, and he’s expected to make a college decision sometime soon. Indiana and Michigan State are seen as the Cats’ top competition.
