Things moved quickly with Nnaji. It was just a week ago we learned the Cats were interested and they made a good enough first impression to land an in-home visit. Nnaji plans to unofficially visit UK this month and potentially return for an official visit the following month.
Nnaji played AAU basketball with Matthew Hurt, and while the Cats would love to have both targets it’s another remainder that the Cats are going to need several frontcourt players in the 2019 class.
UK has offered James Wiseman, Vernon Carey, Matthew Hurt and now Nnaji. It’s expected that Oscar Tshiebwe will land an offer this week. The Cats are also interested in Aidan Igiehon.
The Cats would like to have at least one or two bigs sign in the fall. UK will always have a spot for Wiseman, Carey and Hurt, but there may be some pressure on the other bigs to be the first to commit to secure their spot.
With James Wiseman ending his official visit this weekend UK coaches left town for in-home visits with Hurt and Nnaji. Here are some highlights of the 6-foot-10, 215-pound forward from Hopkins, Minnesota.
