Kentucky Basketball Recruiting in the 2019 Class

Keep track of the latest Kentucky Wildcats Basketball recruiting news in the Class of 2019. The Kentucky Wildcats are primed to finish with another special recruiting class under John Calipari. Kentucky enters the spring with four commitments, the latest being five-star forward Keion Brooks, who 247 Sports ranks No. 13 overall. Brooks will be joined in the frontcourt by five-star forward Kahlil Whitney, who is a top-10 recruit in all major recruiting services and ranked as high as No. 7 by 247 Sports. The Wildcats have also ended its drought of not getting players from the Bluegrass...

No. 2 overall recruit Jalen Green gets a visit from John Calipari

No. 2 overall recruit Jalen Green gets a visit from John Calipari

Green is one of the best in all of high school hoops. The Kentucky Wildcats have had a busy week when it comes to the west coast. It began with the departure of California native Jemarl Baker Jr., who is leaving Lexington and likely transferring to a school closer to home. Then came news that Kentucky was visiting California prospect Johnny Juzang, a five-star 2020 recruit likely to reclassify to 2019. More fuel was added to that fire when John Calipari and Joel Justus visited Juzang to offer him a scholarship. But Juzang wasn’t the only recruit Calipari met with on the west coast this...

Saturday Quickies: EJ Montgomery testing the Waters Edition

Saturday Quickies: EJ Montgomery testing the Waters Edition

What does EJ’s decision mean for UK, football loses a commit, basketball well represented at Jordan Brand Classic, and more! It’s Saturday but the rain and the cold have put a damper on things here in Southern Indiana. I’m sure things are similar in the Bluegrass State. Yesterday fans received the news that EJ Montgomery will declare for the NBA Draft with the opportunity to come back to Kentucky if he doesn’t get the information he wants. He made his intentions crystal clear: first round or he’s back. I think it’s safe to say that EJ will be back next season. I can’t imagine...

A not-so-good update on Kentucky’s status with Kerry Blackshear

A not-so-good update on Kentucky’s status with Kerry Blackshear

Maybe there wasn’t much fire behind the smoke after all. Virginia Tech big man Kerry Blackshear has entered his name into both the NBA Draft and the NCAA basketball transfer portal. As soon as his name went public, many started speculating about his destination because he is easily the best big man available on the transfer market. It was not long before Blackshear’s name came up as a potential target for the Kentucky Wildcats. There have been multiple reports that the Kentucky coaching staff has reached out to Blackshear’s family, although his father has denied that any conversations...

Recruiting experts pick against UK for top remaining targets

Recruiting experts pick against UK for top remaining targets

Kentucky’s roster situation is fluid to say the least. Recruiting has been up and down to say the least over the last few seasons, and it is starting to look like the the Kentucky Wildcats will miss out on some of the remaining players for 2019. Eric Bossi, Corey Evans, and Dan McDonald of basketballrecruiting.rivals.com made their predictions for the remaining top recruits of 2019. The first Kentucky target they discuss is Jaden McDaniels. He is down to Kentucky, Texas, San Diego State, UCLA and Washington. However, all three of the experts predicted that he would ultimately end up...

Kentucky offers Johnny Juzang

Kentucky offers Johnny Juzang

Juzang is likely to reclassify into 2019. After Kentucky Wildcats basketball head coach John Calipari and his staff met with Class of 2020 recruit Johnny Juzang today, the program has officially offered Juzang for the 2020-2021 season, per his AAU team. Kentucky joins Kansas, UCLA, USC and Virgina as the fifth team to offer the five star recruit. Juzang is also the 11th player in the 2020 class to receive an offer from Kentucky, though the expectation now is that Juzang will move into the 2019 class. Though it’s considerably early, the Wildcats’ interest in Juzang is wildly...

Keldon Johnson seen driving a $300,000 car

Keldon is living the NBA life already Former Kentucky Wildcats star Keldon Johnson is wasting no time living the life of an NBA player. The future first-round draft pick has already declared for the draft and left his name in and has already purchased a new Audi in Lexington. Last night, TMZ Sports spotted KJ in Los Angeles at ‘Catch’ for dinner. Johnson rolled up in a McLaren 720S Spider. The price that car normally carries? Around $300,000. Where Johnson is projected to land in the draft, anywhere from the 10th pick to the mid 20’s, his contract can range anywhere from $10...

EJ Montgomery will test NBA Draft waters

EJ Montgomery will test NBA Draft waters

Montgomery wants to know where he stands in NBA Draft. The next in this long line of college basketball announcements has come from Kentucky freshman EJ Montgomery. Montgomery has officially stated that he plans to test the NBA Draft waters, but he can still return for next season with the Kentucky Wildcats. Montgomery started the 2018-2019 season a little behind after sitting out the summer Bahamas tour. Although PJ Washington and Reid Travis laid claim to the majority of the minutes, Richards balled-out and showed himself to be a good bench option for the front court. It took most of...

Friday Quickies: Deafening Silence Edition

Why haven’t we heard from EJ and Nick, Cats welcome two more players, Cal in LA to watch Shai and recruit, more! Good morning, Big Blue Nation. As the roster for the Kentucky Wildcats starts to settle for the 2019/2020 season, there are still many questions unanswered and gaps that are left unfilled. Two of the biggest are EJ Montgomery and Nick Richards. While everyone in Big Blue Nation assumes they are both returning, there’s not been any indication from either player about their plans for next season. Which is a little worrisome considering they are two of the three bigs currently...

The 2019-2020 UK Basketball roster as it stands

Kentucky has a goos roster, but could add one or two more players With the recruiting period winding down and players from last seasons team making their NBA decisions, the 2019-2020 Kentucky Wildcats roster is shaping up to be yet another good one. PJ Washington, Tyler Herro, and Keldon Johnson have all announced their intentions to stay in the NBA Draft. Reid Travis is a senior (and is also heading to the NBA), and Jemarl Baker announced his intentions to transfer from Kentucky. So where does that leave the Wildcats in terms for next season’s roster? UK is losing over 60% of its...

Should Camron Justice be UK’s primary grad transfer guard target?

Should Camron Justice be UK’s primary grad transfer guard target?

It would be a hit with Big Blue Nation. John Calipari and his staff once again went to the transfer portal to find some depth this year. Nate Sestina will be coming from Bucknell to give the Kentucky Wildcats some versatility in the front court. Now, with the departure of Jemarl Baker, do they need to try and do the same for another guard? If they do, there is one player I know Kentucky fans would be excited about. Camron Justice was a 3-star recruit in the 2015 recruiting class. He was ranked No. 207 in the 247 Sports composite ranking. He had offers from Tennessee, Clemson, Western...

PJ Washington breaks the “One & Done” mold

PJ Washington breaks the “One & Done” mold

PJ’s impact will hopefully leave a lasting legacy. Not long after Kentucky’s season ended, PJ Washington declared for the NBA Draft and gave up what is left of his college eligibility. As a player who turned down the draft a season ago and returned to college to improve his game, PJ has become a shining example and has set a new precedent for players coming back to school to improve their stock. When Washington arrived at UK in 2017, he seemed to be a near lock as another one-and-done in John Calipari’s NBA machine. Over his 10 years in Lexington, Calipari has sent 35 players into...
