Per the Twitter-verse, Madison Central (Ky.) point guard Larryn Brooks has verbally committed to the Indiana women’s basketball team for 2013. All-Star Girls Report’s Bret McCormick tweeted the info and Brooks’ own twitter page says she is “soon to be a Hoosier.”
Brooks is listed at either 5-foot-5 or 5-7, depending on what you read, but is a 3-star prospect according to ESPN HoopGurlz and rated the No. 45 point guard in the country for the 2013 class. Here is a recent evaluation from that site:
Midwest Showdown-May 2012: The 5-foot-7 point guard made an impression throughout the event, pushing the tempo in transition and leading Kentucky Premier all the way to the Elite Division championship game. Brooks consistently got out with the ball on the fast break, leaving defenders wondering where she went as she blew by to finish or find an open teammate. Her game showed why multiple schools, including Miami and Xavier, have stepped up their recruiting after her play during the spring evaluation period. (Clay)
Brooks was a member of the Kentucky Junior All-Stars, pouring in 22 points in the first of two matchups against the Indiana Junior All-Stars last week. She had just four points in the second game.
But her commitment to IU did draw a tweet of congratulations from Indiana Junior All-Star and Notre Dame-bound Taya Reimer of Hamilton Southeastern, who said: “S/O to @Larryn_B12 for committing to IU! That’s awesome!!! Congrats, and you’re gunna kill it there!”
Brooks is the third 2013 commit for the Hoosiers and new coach Curt Miller, joining Westfield center Jenn Anderson and Westerville, Ohio, point guard Taylor Agler.
