According to Andrew Slater of 247 Sports, 2019 five-star forward Matthew Hurt will be visiting Kentucky in the final weekend of September.

Hurt is considered a consensus top-five talent in 2019 and the No. 1 small forward in the class.

The 6’9 forward has offers from Indiana, Duke, Kansas, Louisville, Indiana, North Carolina, Arizona, Florida, and Wisconsin, among others. Kentucky has yet to offer, but Calipari has shown interest.

The Rochester, MN native’s Crystal Ball is all over the place, with five different schools receiving picks.

We’re still a long way away from Hurt making a decision, but it’s good to see the top prospects in the nation making an effort to visit the Wildcats early in the game.

Watch him work below:

    Indiana wants him so bad, they have offered two times 🙂

    Why do we (UK) seem to get in so late on a lot of these guys? Sometimes that early contact pays off at the end.

    And yet, we still have a top 3 recruiting class pretty much every year…
