Keion Brooks’ last official visit to Michigan State this weekend has been cancelled, per Rivals’ Eric Bossi. Rumors have circulated that Michigan State was the ones to cancel the visit, but regardless of why the visit was cancelled, it appears Brooks will be deciding in the coming weeks. Brooks’ father said the visit to Michigan State may be made at a later date.
The five-star Indiana native playing his high school basketball at La Lumiere isn’t expected to sign in the next few days, but if he is done with official visits a commitment may not be far off. He has officially visited UK, Indiana, UNC and UCLA, but is also considering Purdue and MSU. Brooks’ spoke with Bossi about his finalists and had nice things to say about the Cats.
He said that Calipari gave him the normal “it isn’t easy” pitch, but the UK head coach went into more detail about the roster turnover that happens annually in Lexington.
“On my official, (Calipari) sat me down and he kind of went through each player at my position and what he thought they did well and what he thought they needed to work on and if he thought they would be able to be drafted and go on to the next level next year. So as we were going through that, I was able to get a good feel for next year and how many minutes I would be able to come in and play.”
Brooks is asked about all his finalists and it’s a fun read. Check out the entire article HERE.
Brooks told Bossi he plans to decide in a couple weeks or a month. Indiana seems like the team to beat, but I do think UK is currently running second. Don’t count out Kentucky’s chances in this recruitment.
