Keion Brooks reportedly makes final decision on 2022 NBA Draft
Keion Brooks entered the 2022 NBA Draft following the 2021-22 season at Kentucky. At the same time, he also entered the NCAA transfer portal.
On Monday, he reportedly narrowed down his decision a bit, making a final choice with regards to the draft.
Per Jeff Goodman of Stadium, Brooks has withdrawn his name from the NBA Draft class and will play in college again next season:
Kentucky transfer Keion Brooks will withdraw from the NBA Draft, source told @stadium. Brooks could have a big year next season, depending where he lands, and is a potential first-rounder.

Now, that doesn’t mean he’ll play at Kentucky. He’s still exploring his transfer options, but a return to Lexington isn’t out of the question, either.
Brooks appeared in 33 games for the Wildcats this past season, starting all of them. He averaged 10.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1 assist per contest.
