Kentucky set to visit 2020 five-star forward Isaiah Todd on Monday


Kelly Kline | Under Armour

Kentucky is set to visit its top frontcourt target in the class of 2020 on Monday.

According to Jason Jordan of USA Today, the UK coaching staff will be in to see 2020 top-ten prospect Isaiah Todd in an open gym at his school on Monday.

In Rivals’ most recent rankings released this afternoon, Todd was ranked No. 9 in the country overall and No. 2 at his position of power forward.

ESPN listed Todd as the No. 7 prospect in the class of 2020, with 247Sports listing the 6-foot-10 forward at No. 13 overall.

Back in August, the five-star prospect trimmed his list to five, with Kentucky, North Carolina, Kansas, Memphis, and Michigan all making the final cut.

Looking at his Crystal Ball over at 247Sports, Kentucky holds 50% of all predictions, followed by North Carolina at 17% and Kansas at 8%, among other picks. Recruiting experts Andrew Slater and Josh Gershon make up two of Kentucky’s five total predictions.

Here are his most recent highlights from Peach Jam:

Come on down, big fella.

    Is he teasing us Jack? Love the podcast and also a shoutout to Travis and Jake. I know Jake is a Ville fan but he knows his stuff man. You and Travis kick ass too!!!!!

    This kid is smooth as silk and has a pure stroke from outside. They don’t make many like him for sure. Lol. Cross between Jarren Jackson/ Jason Tatum,/. Maybe better shooter than both. Very High level, He’s pretty tough around the rim also. So much to like about him and hope he’s in Lexington for a year. Lol. Go Cats

    If he was a Duke or UNCHEAT TODD would be top 5. There is only a few as good as him. No way there are 10-15 better players then him. NO WAY! HE has player of year potential. Ranking wise reminds me of Towns because he stayed around 10-15 when committed to UK. Well we all know how good he was and turned out.

    Wow this kid needs to be priority #1 for us next year!!! If this kid is not a top 5 talent this class must be loaded.. At 6’ 10 and the way he handles the ball and shoots with his overall athleticism… I know at his highest rating is 7 out of the three major rankings seems low to me.. I have never seen him in person and I know highlight videos can be misleading at times but man he sure checks at the least most boxes I really hope is a Wildcat next year.. we def need him and he is at a major position at need for us.. Put him in the middle of all the guards we are bringing in and we will def be in the title picture… IMO

    I see he is 9 but still think he is top 5 and will be player of year candidate.

    If Cal wants him bad enough you better know Memphis is already prepping a $$$$$$ bag for that in home visit.

    On the top of my wishlist at this point. We really need quality bigs, and his skill level is through the roof. I agree w/ others that if he isn’t top 5, and BJ Boston isn’t even top 10, then this class is absolutely monstrous. I’m starting to think that it probably is, and there’s not a whole lot of separation at the very top, either, which is rare. Todd and Clarke still look like the best NBA prospects to me.

    We absolutely need this one. He brings a completely different skill set to a group already stacked with Uber-athletic wings and backcourt. So mobile, so smooth…..almost Durantish.
