Add another to the long list of big names headed to Lexington…
Kentucky will get an official visit from another five-star prospect, this time with 2019 top-15 small forward Keion Brooks.
According to his mother Sarita Brooks (via 247 Sports), Brooks will head to Lexington in three weeks.
“Keion will be visiting Kentucky officially on October 20,” said the highly-touted prospect’s mother in an interview with Brian Snow of 247.
A 6-foot-6 small forward out of La Lumiere School in Indiana, Brooks is considered a consensus five-star product, ranked as high as No. 12 on 247 Sports.
This past week, Brooks cut his final list to six, with Kentucky, Indiana, UCLA, Purdue, North Carolina and Michigan State making the cut.

He has already officially visited UCLA, and he is scheduled to head to Indiana this weekend for their Hoosier Hysteria event. The following weekend he will be in Colorado Springs to participate in the USA Basketball training camp.
Brooks also has a visit scheduled with North Carolina in November, meaning his fifth official will come down to Purdue and Michigan State, with the Spartans expected to get the final visit.
As for other prospects expected in Lexington in the near future, Kentucky will host five-star big men Isaiah Stewart and Oscar Tshiebwe on official visits this week, with Stewart arriving today and Tshiebwe coming in tomorrow evening. The Cats will also host 2020 point guard Sharife Cooper for an unofficial visit.
An already-busy recruiting schedule for John Calipari and company just got a whole lot busier.
