The 6’7″ 185 lbs. wing out from Fort Wayne, Indiana will participate in the Jordan Brand Classic in Las Vegas this weekend along with fellow future Cats Tyrese Maxey and Kahlil Whitney. Maxey signed his letter of intent in November, while Whitney has a signing ceremony planned for May 3 in his hometown of Chicago.
Our own Jack Pilgrim will be in Vegas to bring you all the highlights and quotes you could dream of, but until then, enjoy Brooks’ latest mixtape:
UPDATE: UK just sent out this quote from John Calipari on Brooks’ signing.
“Keion is such a unique player because he has guard play-making ability in a 6-7, physical frame,” Calipari said. “In the last year at La Lumiere, he has physically improved leaps and bounds and is going to continue to get stronger. He helped his team to a 29-1 record, which shows you he’s a winner. We expect him to have a major impact on this program just like he did at La Lumiere. He’s a great kid from a great family and I can’t wait to get him here.”
