Kentucky Recruiting: 7/19-7/23

Here is a rundown of everything recruiting that has happened in the world of Kentucky recruiting this week from Monday to Friday.

– Canadian Guard Negus Webster-Chan has began receiving interest from Kentucky. Negus, who plays with Team Takeover Canada’s U16 squad, recently heard from UK assistant Orlando Antigua. Antigua watched the class of 2012 prospect lead his team to the championship at the West Virginia Jam Fest last week. Negus attends Huntington Prep in West Virginia and has been open about the situation saying he hopes to take an unofficial visit to the Lexington school next year. At 6-foot-6, Webster-Chan creates problems for opposing players as he can play the 1, 2 and 3. Among the other schools he is hearing from, schools like USC, Nebraska, UNLV, Oklahoma, Baylor, Syracuse, Virginia and Washington are some of the notable schools.

New Jersey rising Junior Kyle Anderson is hearing from Big Blue. With hopes from Coach Cal and company for the guard/wing to come down and visit in August, there are already plans set up to visit. Anderson’s father, Kyle Sr., hopes to come down to Lexington with his son this fall to watch a football game. The NJ Playaz guard, who recently transfered to St. Anthony, has offers from Big East, ACC, Big-10 and A-10 schools along with interest from Big-12, Pac-10 and a large amount of high major schools.

– Oregon standout Kyle Wiltjer mentioned the Cats on his list of Kansas, Gonzaga, Oregon, Oregon State, California, USC, Stanford, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech and Texas. As of now, Wiltjer has no favorites at the moment and is focusing on the rest of July. As a rising senior, he looks to gain more interest as a skilled 6-foot-9 wing on one of the top teams in the nation, the Oakland Soliders.

– Anthony Davis may have said that he is down to Kentucky, Syracuse and Ohio State, but that doesn’t always mean its official. North Carolina has now emerged as the fourth school involved with Davis. After an excellent performance at the Nike Peach Jam, there are talks that the Illinois native could pass UK commit Michael Gilchrist as the number one player in the class of 2011. Davis intends to visit all three of the schools on his list after July and may visit Chapel Hill, as well. North Carolina has still not offered Davis yet.
