Monday Cardinal Couple -- Brooks lists Louisville in Top 5
MONDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
- Troyian Brooks names Louisville to her final five
Every couple of days or so...it seems another talented player in the 2015 girls basketball elite has named Louisville in their top five or top ten list.
Add the name Troyian Brooks to the list of stars that are looking at Louisville as a possible destination to continue their academic and athletic pursuits. This Helen Cox H.S. star from New Orleans can go as a foward or wing.
Don't go rushing off to look at her junior year stats, though:
Troyian Brooks, a highly recruited junior, was suspended by head coach Weary-Cox for violation of team rules the first semester and missed the second semester because of academic reasons.
Her list is impressive and includes a couple of schools that would bring her into the KFC YUM! Center even if she doesn't end up here.
6'2 W/F Troyian Brooks has a list of five. West Virginia, Louisville, Kentucky, North Carolina & Texas Tech.
The summer club tournaments are probably more important in getting a player recognition that their high schools careers.
So...how are her skills? Walz will have more wings on campus than your local KFC Restaurant outlet in 2015. Here's what she showed at a recent skills camp:
6'2" Troyian Brooks, a New Orleans native, literally shined bright all day. The lefty has long arms and is very long athletically with a nice array of skill sets. She runs the floor extremely well and pushes the ball on the dribble. She finishes well in the paint and has a smooth stroke that extends out to the three-point range. Brooks is adept at attacking off the dribble and finishing in the paint. She has good handles, is a good on-ball defender, rebounds well and is a high energy player with great hops. Her game and future are extremely bright and she's a player definitely worth keeping your eyes on.
