2019 five-star forward Keion Brooks Jr. has trimmed his list to ten, and Kentucky made the cut.

The Cats join Michigan, Michigan State, Texas, North Carolina, Indiana, UCLA, Georgetown, Iowa, and Purdue on the final list.

Brooks, a 6-foot-8 small forward out of Fort Wayne, IN, is a consensus five-star prospect and ranked as high as No. 16 in the nation (247 Sports).

Just two weeks ago, Brooks’ father told 247 Sports that being a priority for Kentucky is very important to their family.

“To be one of the guys [Kentucky] is going after, that means a lot,” he said.

Brooks Jr. also told Curtis Burch of Big Blue Insider that he would “love” to play with Kentucky commit Tyrese Maxey.

“I’d love to play with Tyrese. He’s a very good guard, he’s unselfish but he can put the ball in the hole as well. He commands a lot of attention so then that takes some of it off me and I can take some pressure off him. We really play off each other really well.”

    In any case he got a mean streak but athleticism similar to AP. I think he had more aggeesion. If we can get wiseman and probably hurt or carney the 2019 can be historic
