WATCH: Keion Brooks is up in ‘Meet the Wildcats’

Kentucky Basketball’s ‘Meet the Wildcats’ series continues today with a look at Keion Brooks.

The 6’7″ small forward from Fort Wayne, Indiana opens up about his love for the game, which started with his father, who played basketball at Wright State and professionally for a few years. He also talks about what drew him to John Calipari and Kentucky.

“Coach Cal was 100% genuine. He never told me a lie. He told me it was going to be hard, which it is. He just made sure that if I came here, he’s going to push me everyday to be the best player I can be, which is really going to help me achieve my dreams.”

    Hopefully this class builds the bonds we have seen from others. I am excited for this season coming up. Though we didn’t get any top 5 players, I think we got some really smart players with good basketball IQ’s. I really like the way Brooks played in AAU. Looks really smooth and really plays within a team system.

    Cal continually recruits only high character kids and Brooks is just another example.
    Go Cats !
