Brooks

ESPN recruiting insider Jeff Borzello is now predicting that Kentucky is in the best position to land highly touted forward Keion Brooks, who is taking his official visit to Lexington this weekend.

In Borzello’s latest “Hot Board” post chronicling the top official visits of the week, he predicted UK would ultimately land the 6-foot-7 prospect from Fort Wayne, Ind., though he put his confidence level on that pick at 35 percent in what has been a tough-to-read recruitment.

Brooks has already taken official visits to UCLA and Indiana, and he’ll take official visits to North Carolina and Michigan State next month. Purdue is also among his finalists. ESPN ranks Brooks as the No. 33 overall player in the class of 2019, and he was one of the first recruits from that group to land a scholarship offer from Kentucky.

247Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer has logged a new prediction in favor of Indiana for Keion Brooks, one of UK’s top basketball targets in the class of 2019.

Brooks — a 6-foot-7 small forward from Fort Wayne, Ind. — is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 7 overall prospect in the 2019 class, and he was one of the first players from that group to land a scholarship offer from Kentucky.

UK commitment Tyrese Maxey told the Herald-Leader last month that Brooks has been the No. 1 priority on his personal recruiting list. The two rising seniors have known each other since grade school and both play on the Nike circuit.

Langford — a 6-foot-5 prospect from New Albany, Ind. — cut his list to Indiana, Kansas and Vanderbilt over the weekend, but IU and KU have been seen as the most likely destinations in recent weeks.
