Fort Wayne, Indiana native and 5-star prospect Keion Brooks just announced on Twitter that he will be announcing his college choice in less than two weeks at St. Paul’s Lutheran School at 8pm.

Brooks is rated as the 23rd overall prospect by 247Sports Composite rankings. Listed at 6’7″ and 195 pounds, the forward for La Lumiere School has a final six school listing that he’s considering, but most think it is down to Indiana, Kentucky, and Michigan State.

Brooks is one of the top players left on the board for the Kentucky staff and it appeared they had the momentum in recent weeks, gaining significant predictions on the 247Sports Crystal Ball. As of now, Kentucky leads at 46%, with Indiana’s 31% and Michigan State’s 14% next on the list. Let’s hope we’ll be seeing him in Lexington next season.

WATCH: Future Cat Tyrese Maxey’s high school playoff highlights

While yesterday was a rough day for the current set of Kentucky Wildcats, future Cat Tyrese Maxey was competing for a spot in the Texas High School Basketball State Tournament, with a spot at State on the line. Unfortunately, Maxey’s South Garland squad fell to Klein Forest by the score of 64-53 in the Regional Finals.

Maxey’s high school basketball career has come to an end earlier than he had hoped, but it is clear he left it all on the floor every night for the Colonels and I’m sure he was distraught about ending before a shot at the State Title.

Last night, he finished with 25 of his team’s 53 points in a losing effort. Take a look at some of his highlights from this year’s playoffs below.

While no one wants to overlook the most fun part of this Kentucky season, as Selection Sunday is a few weeks away, people have to be really excited about what Kentucky is going to be getting in Tyrese Maxey next year. Maxey is an absolute stud, and seeing him alongside whoever returns for UK will be exciting to watch.
