Another day, another in-state prospect visit for new Indiana head coach Archie Miller.

After seeing Indianapolis Tindley four-star junior guard Eric Hunter on Monday, and New Albany five-star junior guard Romeo Langford on Tuesday, Miller was joined by assistant coach Ed Schilling to watch Fort Wayne North Side sophomore Keion Brooks on Wednesday.

After seeing Brooks, Miller extended a scholarship offer to the sophomore.

Brooks actually wasn't hearing much from Indiana under previous head coach Tom Crean. With Miller now at the helm, time is still there to form a relationship and try to get in the mix in the recruitment.

“That brings a whole new dynamic to the situation," Brooks told of the coaching change in March. "So we’ll just see how that plays out.

“It’s still pretty early. I haven’t even thought about making a decision yet. I'm just weathering the storm right now.”

Brooks averaged over 20 points and seven rebounds this season to lead North Side to a 27-3 overall record. They advanced all the way to the Class AAAA state title game before falling 55-52 to Ben Davis in the championship.

He also holds early offers from Purdue and Michigan State, among others.

Schilling coached Brooks' father as head man at Wright State for two seasons in the late 90's. Brooks' father (also named Keion) was named to the Wright State Basketball Hall of Fame.

Miller's week doesn't end with seeing Brooks. He's scheduled to host Bloomington North four-star junior Musa Jallow on campus Thursday before the live period kicks off Friday.

Then, Miller and his staff will spend the weekend evaluating prospects in certified NCAA events all over the country, including the adidas Gauntlet in Dallas.
