Keion Brooks, the 6-foot-8 small forward from North Side (IN) High School, spoke with D1Vision on Wednesday about his recent visit to Kentucky for Big Blue Madness (Oct. 13).

“I noticed they have a culture of winning and striving to win,” said Brooks about Kentucky. “Their fans were crazy and they really care about the team. Their fan base is amazing and they have a lot of people supporting them, backing them, pushing them, and advocating for them to succeed.”

According to 247Sports, Brooks is ranked as the No. 23 overall player in the Class of 2019 and the No. 1 player from the state of Indiana. After his visit, Brooks made it clear that Kentucky would be a good be a good fit for his game.

“I think I would fit in great because they play a style of being long and athletic,” said Brooks. “They push the ball, try to score in transition, and the open man always gets the shot. Since [John Calipari] has been there, his teams never revolve around one person. Your teammates will trust you to do your job and make the right play.”

Following his Kentucky visit, Brooks will be visiting Michigan State (Oct. 20) and Indiana (Oct. 21) for unofficial visits this weekend. He broke down each school for D1Vision on Wednesday:

Indiana: “They are close to home and being from Indiana myself, I have always been intrigued by them. Being able to represent my state across my chest is something that I would love to do. And I also really like the transition that they’re taking with their new staff. The players are buying into what Archie [Miller] is selling and that means a lot because he’s coming to coach guys that he didn’t even recruit. For them to buy into what he’s saying means that they have real trust in the transition and the process that he’s setting them on.”

Michigan State: “They were the very first school to recruit me, so that means a lot. For them to see the promise in me at such a young age goes a long way. But the most important thing to me about Michigan State is the family-oriented culture that they’ve established. All of the players enjoy each other and want to see one another succeed.”

Last month, Brooks told D1Vision that Indiana, Purdue, Georgetown, and Iowa were the four schools working the hardest for his recruitment. He unofficially visited Purdue last month (Sept. 30).

Brooks also said last month that he is still looking to visit Kansas, Iowa, and Georgetown.
