The momentum in the recruitment of five-star basketball prospect Keion Brooks appears to be shifting away from longtime favorite Indiana, and UK could be in line to take over that frontrunner status in the very near future.
Brooks, of course, visited Kentucky over the weekend and was sitting directly behind the UK bench — right next to Wildcats signee Dontaie Allen — for the team’s dismantling of No. 1 Tennessee in front of the best Rupp Arena crowd of the year Saturday night.
Indiana, meanwhile, has lost 10 of 11 games and sits near the bottom of the Big Ten standings in Archie Miller’s second season as head coach. Brooks also cancelled a visit to Michigan State that was set for Sunday, unable to make the trip to the early afternoon game in East Lansing after watching the Cats play late Saturday night.
