The 2018 NextUp Kentucky Recruits Elite Camp gave a chance for Kentuckian Kyky Tandy and UK 2020 target Jaemyn Brakefield to put on a show. Brakefield plays for Huntington Prep and has visited UK a few times unofficially. The Cats haven’t offered Brakefield but that will likely change as the five-star forward continues to develop.
It’s a shame that things went sour between Tandy and UK. Tandy is a great player and could be a candidate to be one of the best scorers in college basketball if he stays until his junior or senior season. He just always finds different ways to score and can fill it up from deep but can also attack the rim. UK will bring in Tyrese Maxey and possibly Cole Anthony and other five-star players in the class, so UK will be fine, but everyone loves a Kentuckian on the roster.
Tandy is the shorter one featured in the video and Brakefield is the tallest. The highlights also feature Tennessean Devan Cambridge, who is in the class of 2019 and has an offer from Brown. That kid looks bouncy.
