It’s easy to look past Keion Brooks when two potential superstar rookies are on their way to Lexington, but he’s going to be impossible to ignore once the season begins.
During a practice session with trainer Corey Frazier, Brooks showcased his improved skills from this past offseason through a variety of shooting drills.

It’s only a workout video, so take away what you want from the actual video. What *EYE* will take away from it is how physically fit Brooks looks compared to his freshman season. Maybe it’s just me, but the young man in the video above appears about 10-15 pounds lighter than the one we all saw back in March – we love a good summer spent in the weight room.
Brooks is expected to play a major role as the lone returning member off of last season’s Kentucky team. Alongside the nation’s top incoming recruiting class and some key transfers, the rising sophomore is going to be this team’s X-Factor. If Brooks can make a P.J. Washington/Nick Richards-sized leap by the time the 2020-21 season tips off, lookout.
In case you forgot what Freshman Brooks could do, take the time to refresh your memory.
