Go ahead and add another top-tier prospect to the list of attendees for next Friday’s Big Blue Madness.
According to Stockrisers Jake Weingarten, Trey Kaufman, a 2021 four-star power forward out of Indiana, will be in Rupp Arena to watch the festivities on an unofficial visit.

This news comes shortly after Kentucky’s assistant coach Joel Justus went and watched Kaufman at his high school in Sellersburg, IN.

Kaufman is a relatively unknown player to this site, but he’s a name you might want to start paying attention to. Standing at 6-foot-8 and weighing 210 pounds, the No. 29 overall recruit in 2021 according to 247 Sports already has offers from schools such as Indiana, Lousiville, Xavier, and Purdue – although Kentucky has yet to offer him.
After starting the summer as low as the No. 66 overall recruit in the class of 2021, Kaufman has shot up the rankings. 247 Sports currently does not have a Crystal Ball prediction for the forward and it sounds like he is still in the early stages of his recruitment process.
As a sophomore last season, Kaufman averaged 14.8 points and 9.8 rebounds per game while 60 percent from the field and 40 percent from three.
Check out some of his highlights.
