Major UK target to visit Big Ten school

Hmmmm. 2019 UK basketball target Keion Brooks will visit a Big Ten school this week and the destination may come as a surprise.

Brooks isn’t stopping in this week to see Indiana, Michigan or Michigan State, but instead will travel to Iowa to check out Fran McCaffery’s program. The Fort Wayne native is UK’s top priority at the three position in the class of 2019 and the Cats are thought to be the leader.

So, I’m not too sure what to make of his visit to Iowa. Keion played with Fran’s son Patrick (committed to Iowa, duh) and fellow Iowa target Trayce Jackson-Davis (also from Indiana).

Maybe Brooks is just throwing the McCaffery’s a bone and a courtesy visit, or maybe the Cats have some unexpected competition from a Big Ten school no one predicted. My guess is the Cats won’t have to worry too much about the Hawkeyes.

Let’s hope Fran keeps his cool if he’s ever eliminated in the recruitment.
