Former Five Star Recruit Keion Brooks Commits to Washington

Published

on

On Monday, former five star recruit and Kentucky transfer Keion Brooks announced his future plans, committing to the University of Washington. Brooks recently withdrew his name from the NBA Draft and picked the Huskies over fellow PAC-12 member Arizona.

The 6-foot-7 forward averaged a career-high 24.5 minutes per game as a junior, tallying 10.8 points and 4.4 rebounds on 49.1 percent shooting. Brooks inserted himself into the Wildcats’ lineup this past season, starting all 33 contests for John Calipari.

The top-25 recruit spent three seasons in Lexington, averaging 10 or more points in back-to-back campaigns. For his career, Brooks averages 8.3 points and 4.4 rebounds per game, while connecting on 47.4 percent of his shots.

Brooks will provide an instant impact to a Washington team that finished 17-15 this past season. The Huskies have exercised the portal to compile their roster, as Brooks is the fourth transfer commitment for Mike Hopkins this offseason.

As the Fort Wayne, IN native has found his new home in the Pacific Northwest, he will have two years of eligibility remaining.
