East Lansing — Michigan State will get the final shot to make its case for one of the top targets in the 2019 recruiting class when five-star forward Keion Brooks takes his official visit Nov. 16.

The 6-foot-6 senior at La Lumiere in La Porte, Ind., has Michigan State among his six finalists and his mother told that Michigan State will get the last visit. Brooks, who has long been a target of the Spartans, last month named Michigan State as one of his finalists, including Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Purdue and UCLA.

Brooks, ranked No. 21 in the nation, has taken official visits to Indiana and UCLA and will be taking his official visit to Kentucky this weekend. He has scheduled an official visit to North Carolina for Nov. 2.

Michigan State also is awaiting decisions from five-star forward Trayce Jackson-Davis and four-star forward Malik Hall, who both attended Midnight Madness at Michigan State. Last week, each included the Spartans among their finalists.

Jackson-Davis, 6-8 and the No. 15 overall recruit in the nation, listed Michigan State, Indiana and UCLA as his finalists. The 6-7 Hall is ranked No. 52 and has Oregon and Purdue listed as finalists along with the Spartans.

The 2019 recruiting class currently has one commitment from four-star guard Rocket Watts, ranked No. 32. The 6-4 Watts is taking his official visit to Michigan State this weekend.
