In one of the most anticipated ads in Class 2019, Keion Brooks will reveal a college Friday night.
The 6-foot-7 small on from La Lumiere School (IN) will announce at 8 p.m. CT at St. Paul's Lutheran School with Evan Daniels from 247Sports.com.
He is officially thinking of Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan State, North Carolina and Purdue. Brooks made official visits to Indiana (January 28), Kentucky (October 19) and North Carolina (November 2).
He visited Kentucky on 16 February for an unofficial person when the Wildcats then broke-No. Tennessee and Kentucky coach John Calipari visited Brooks last Tuesday. Sources suggest that Kentucky is the best one for Brooks, who is classified as No. 23 in Class 2019 and player No. 3 from the state of Indiana per 247.
“Kentucky's park on which they feel I'm cut for Kentucky is not a success for everyone,” says Brooks in January. “Coach Cal believes I am one of the people who can do it. He believes that I can enter and find my dreams, yours while working together. ”

Brooks was named Hoophall ZAGSBLOG All-Competition team in January after spending 25 points on a 7-for-12 shooting with five rebounds and three blocks in the Chain Lagumre LaMum prize at 73-50.
“He's a hybrid on 6-8,” said longtime recruiting a new expert, Tom Konchalski. “He's not as thick as Isaiah Stewart but he's a man who can score in or out and it's obviously a very good athlete. It is one of the best in class, it is an All-American American McDonald. ”
If Brooks chose Kentucky, it would be a great help to Wildcats' front court as they are losing Reid Travis to the stage and it is likely that P.J. Washington on the NBA Draft. Kentucky lost James Wiseman (Memphis), one of three finalists in the Gatorade, Vernon Carey (Duke) and Stewart (Washington) Awards. They stay in play for 6-11 great men Seattle Jaden McDaniels, who drew comparisons with young Kevin Durant.
“I'm going down to the horrible,” said Brooks. “I still have to pray to do it a little more, talk to my mom and my father and the rest of my family's little more about him and later whatever God has for me to do. ”
