By ADAM ZAGORIA
Indiana hosted a pair of five-star recruits on official visits this weekend in Keion Brooks and Trayce Jackson-Davis.
The 6-foot-9 Jackson-Davis is the No. 16 prospect in the Class of 2019, per ESPN.com, while the 6-7 Brooks is ranked No. 33.
“They want to keep the top talent players in state; they watched me and Keion play on the Nike circuit and we complemented each other really well,” Jackson-Davis said.
Asked if he and Brooks discussed a potential pairing under coach Archie Miller, Jackson-Davis said, “We didn’t really talk much about next year really. We just enjoyed our time with the players/coaches and checking out the campus.”
