Vernon Carey is coming to Big Blue Madness. The 2019 five-star power forward just told reporters at the Peach Jam he plans to take his official visit to Kentucky the weekend of October 12-14 for the program’s biggest recruiting night of the year.
It may be worth noting that Carey, considered a Duke lean, listed Kentucky first when asked about his official visit schedule.
“They’ll probably all be in October,” Carey said of his official visits. “For Big Blue Madness and some other big event for Duke.”
Carey is considered the No. 2 player in the 2019 class behind James Wiseman, whom he faced last night. Today, he reiterated that he’s open to playing with Wiseman in college, a concept you know John Calipari is drooling over. This morning, Calipari, Kenny Payne, and Joel Justus were all courtside to watch Carey again, which has made an impression.
“Yeah, Coach Cal has been texting me and said, just keep on playing hard. He loves the way I play.”
