2017 UK target John Petty is hyped about Kentucky

Even though 2017 is two years away, we can’t help but get pretty excited about John Petty, 6’6 small forward out of Huntsville, Alabama. Standing out at Houston’s Nike EYBL for the Alabama Challenge, Petty is currently ranked No. 31 by 247Sports and will move up after this weekend.
