There are numerous unsigned prospects still available in the state this spring, and, interestingly enough, there are a some true low-post prospects still available as well. One of the top available overall prospects in the state and definitely one of the top available true low-post prospects is Texas native, 6-foot-9, 225-pound senior post Barrett Keith.
Keith recently moved to the state of Arizona to pick up his game and recruitment this season at AZ Compass Prep in Chandler, Arizona, and competed very well for the program this high school season - providing depth in the low-post and giving the program a low-post scoring option.
After receiving loads of division-I interest over the past two years, but no offers from division-I programs as of yet, Keith has now received two offers from Benedictine College and Concordia College (OR). Both schools are looking to bring Keith on an official recruiting visit very soon, in hopes of landing the skilled post player. Keith has also received interest from such division-I programs as Wyoming, Colgate, Columbia, Dartmouth, Boston University, LeHigh, Montana State, UMASS Lowell, New Hampshire, St. Francis and Bucknell.
Keith is a true 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. Keith is a serious sleeper prospect for a program looking for a stretch 4-man or 5 that enjoys playing inside the paint, and also is able to stretch the defense, as needed.
Keith is also an excellent student and carries a 3.7 CUM GPA, and plans to major in business or sports management in the future. He is a full academic qualifier and is a fine young man with a nice personality. He also has very good work ethic on and off the court.
