While Arizona's 2018 class of prospects lack a lot of true size, 6-foot-9, 225-pound senior post Barrett Keith recently moved to the state of Arizona via Texas where he attended Keller High School. Keith now attends AZ Compass Prep in Chandler, Arizona, and is looking to raise his overall college recruitment the second half of this high school season.
Keith began his senior season at Keller HS (TX), but decided to leave the state of Texas after he and his family became very unhappy with the direction of things at the program. The state of Texas is also absolutely loaded with talent, and, often times, many players go unnoticed by college programs. Keith now is looking to raise his recruiting stock this spring, just in time for the late signing period.
Currently, Keith has been hearing from a large number of division-I programs, including Wyoming, Colgate, Columbia, Dartmouth, Boston University, LeHigh, Montana State, UMASS Lowell, New Hampshire, St. Francis and Bucknell. While he has received loads of interest over the past year, he is still looking to receive his first division-I offer. With so many programs this spring that will be looking for size, Keith should benefit nicely.
Keith is a strong, low-post prospect with a high basketball IQ and a willingness to put his body on opposing players to get a lot done for his team on both ends of the floor. Keith has excellent physical size and a nice overall offensive skillset that allows him to score inside and out, with a soft touch from the perimeter.
