Indiana offers state’s top sophomore, Keion Brooks Jr.

Archie Miller continues to hit the recruiting trail hard around the state and on Wednesday, he visited the state’s top 2019 prospect.

Miller and assistant coach Ed Schilling were at Fort Wayne North and watched Keion Brooks Jr., the No. 17 player in the 2019 class according to the 247Composite.

Brooks confirmed that he received a scholarship offer from the Hoosiers on his Twitter account.

Brooks’ father, Keion Sr., was a standout for Wright State, where he played for two seasons under Schilling.

The 6-foot-8, 190 pound forward also has early scholarship offers from Michigan State and Purdue.

As a sophomore, he averaged more than 20 points and seven rebounds per game as North advanced to the Class 4A state championship game.

Since last Friday, Miller has visited Robert Phinisee, Eric Hunter, Romeo Langford and Brooks. On Thursday, Bloomington North wing Musa Jallow is scheduled to take an unofficial visit to IU’s campus.

    OK that does make some sense, but Archie is going to try. Plus Schilling adds a new dimension to the equation. Let the battle begin!

  • Gregory J. Haggard

    You bet, I’m very excited about the new coach.

  • Ole Man

    Totally agree. I think if anyone can get this kid besides MSU it’s
    Arch and IU.
    Strap in; it’s gonna be exciting.

    I would love to visit Montana –

    I was really hoping we could have landed at least two or three myself as well. I am not sure why they chose other places but hopefully we can close that gap.

    Watch a Team Focus team play, defense is emphasized

  • Great feedback! This is exactly what many of us were hoping to see. Some questioned the quick commitment to sign Coach Miller (given the next upcoming step-down CTC’s contract), but I figured this was done in the hope of maximizing Miller’s available time to begin recruiting.

    I didn’t see any comments about the picture, but is the guy in the green & yellow hat Keion, Sr.? If so, well played, Ed Schilling.

    I remember Mike Davis opening up the doors for my middle school team for us to watch them practice. Afterwards he and some of the players were kind enough to let us meet them. So not only is it important for the IU coach to have that relationship with the area high school and AAU coaches but think of how it rubs off on a kid getting the opportunity to go thru that experience and bc of that moment they fall in love with IU like I did. If AM opens up the doors unlike CTC did then u will have these local kids grow up wanting to be a Hoosier n that will help out tremendously with IU landing the in state recruits and having good relationships with local high school coaches.

    Those predictions are completely silly. If you look at their process you’ll see that they have to make an early indication but often change last minute. They have to make an early prediction but it really doesn’t mean a whole lot. When you see those predictions change then there might be something behind it. Not saying MSU wasn’t the favorite but you can’t base things off of the “crystal ball” like crap.

    I completely agree and I really think IU hit a homerun with this hire and Archie continues to impress me with his work ethic. On the recruiting trail, built a dream team coaching staff. He’s killing it right now.

  • I was thinking exactly the same thing. As I understand it, they’re close friends. I’m feeling good about this kid.

    So you’ve watched “alot” of AAU game the past few years and somehow missed Romeo in Vegas last year in the biggest AAU tourney in the country? Riiiight. You a fraud man. You got all these people on here hanging on your every word. Sheep
