For the second time in less than a week, Kentucky has received a commitment from a highly-touted wing.
Kahlil Whitney told ESPN’s Paul Biancardi he will be a Kentucky Wildcat. ESPN’s second-ranked small forward and No. 14 player overall, Whitney’s decision comes just days after an unofficial visit to Lexington. Whitney joins five-star point guard Tyrese Maxey and Pendleton County sharpshooter Dontaie Allen in the Cats’ 2019 recruiting class.
The University of Kentucky unofficially celebrated the commitment with an ode to Anthony Davis, another Chicago native whose dreams came true in Kentucky blue. Whitney currently attends Roselle Catholic in New Jersey, the alma mater of Isaiah Briscoe, who was on UK’s campus during Whitney’s unofficial visit.
