Three future Kentucky Wildcats participated in Saturday’s Jordan Brand Classic game.
Signees Tyrese Maxey, Kahlil Whitney, and Keion Brooks all played on the winning team, a sign of what is hopefully to come in Lexington this fall.
While Maxey and Whitney have both received a lot of attention during their recruitments, Brooks was the one left out of the McDonald’s All-American game. On Saturday, he proved he can play with the best and belonged in that game.
In just 14 minutes of action, Brooks scored 15 points, including a pair of highlight dunks. The 6-foot-7 forward from Fort Wayne, Indiana, added 6 rebounds, 2 steals, and a block in a 132-125 win.
Additionally, Maxey chipped in with 13 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists. Whitney added 18 points and two rebounds.
