Five-star small forward Keion Brooks has narrowed down his recruitment.

The Fort Wayne, Ind. native is among the top players in the entire class of 2019.

Brooks, who stars at high school basketball powerhouse La Lumiere, is the No. 22 player in the country, per 247Sports.

He's the No. 5 small forward, and No. 3 player in Indiana behind teammate Isaiah Stewart, a Washington commit, and Indiana commit Trayce-Jackson Davis.

Brooks had UCLA involved, but after the school's mid-season firing of Steve Alford, the Bruins are all but out of it.

That leaves his home state Indiana Hoosiers, Kentucky, Michigan State and North Carolina involved.

Keion Brooks discussed his recruitment after La Lumiere's win at the Hoophall Classic on Monday.

From FloHoops:

"Yeah, I guess you could say that," Brooks said Monday at the Hoophall Classic after going for 25 points and eight rebounds en route to MVP honors as La Lumiere handled DeMatha, 73-50. "I built a great relationship with [former UCLA] Coach [Steve] Alford and his staff and now with their little shake-up it's going to be difficult right now to build any relationship [with a new coach]."

Four of the five schools have received official visits, while he is still weighing a trip to East Lansing.

Indiana is considered the favorite by 247Sports' crystal ball, with 75-percent of the predictions, but he says he doesn't "feel any pressure" to head to Indiana based on it being his home school, or based on his relationships with other current and future Hoosiers.
