Class of 2019 small forward Keion Brooks Jr. from North Side High School (IN) has already made a name for himself nationally. High major schools are taking notice of the young prospect as he has had a successful freshman campaign thus far.

“My freshman season has been going pretty well so far,” Brooks said. “I've been able to compete at a high level and do the things I want on the floor.  I can tell the hours of hard work in the gym are starting to pay off.

Brooks has been trying to be as well rounded of a player as possible.

“I would describe myself as an all-around basketball player,” he said. “Whatever the coach asks of me I will try to complete it to the best of my ability. I think I make the most impact on the game when I'm stretching the floor and attacking my defender off the bounce.

Multiple Prestigious college programs have expressed interest in him thus far.

“I've gotten interest from a lot of Big Ten schools such as Purdue, Indiana, Michigan, and Michigan State,” he told MADEHoops. “Butler, Dayton, Detroit, Virginia, and Duke has also shown interest.”

The Indiana native has already gone on nine unofficial visits and he’s enjoyed all of them.

“I have gone on visits to Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Indiana, Butler, Duke, North Carolina, Wake Forest, and N.C. State,” said the Frosh prospect. “They all went well and have shown a good family environment.

He has a developed skillset for his age, but still looks to develop. Brooks also has plenty of goals in my mind for himself and his team.

“My goals for the rest of the season are to keep competing at a high level and keep becoming better as an all-around basketball player,” he said. “In terms of the team, I want us to get better and better. I want to make a run in the post season and hopefully win a State Championship. I believe we have the team and the talent to do it.”
