While the Big Blue Nation patiently awaits for Kerry Blackshear Jr.’s arrival, another talented frontcourt player toured Kentucky’s campus.
6’10” rising junior Bretner Mutombo was in Lexington today for an unofficial visit, according to Jake Weingarten. The visit comes on the heels of trips to Michigan, Xavier and Dayton.
A four-star prospect, 247 Sports ranks Mutombo as the ninth-best center and No. 60 player overall in the 2021 class. So far Mutombo has offers from Auburn, Georgia, Miss. State, Florida, Georgia Tech and Xavier.
Originally from the Congo, Mutombo is a raw prospect. If he puts on some weight and continues to improve, he could be a late bloomer that is turning heads on the recruiting trail this time next year.
Instead of seeing a typical highlight mixtape, enjoy footage of a Mutombo workout from the fall of 2016. The setting is slightly different than the Craft Center.
