According to several reports, 2019 five-star forward Charles Bassey will be transferring to Aspire Academy in Louisville to finish out his high school career.

Bassey is considered the No. 1 player in 2019 according to, and Kentucky is considered one of the early favorites in his recruitment.

The initial report comes from with a quote from DeSales High School president Doug Strothman:

“We’re expecting him as a student,” Strothman said Wednesday.

Aspire Academy, who relocated to Louisville from Arizona just three months ago, will be running their academic program through DeSales High School in Louisville.

Bassey doesn’t have an offer from Kentucky yet, but he visited back in June and reportedly has a lot of interest in the Wildcats. He also listed Western Kentucky among his favorite schools back in January.

With Calipari now right down the road from Bassey, this news is massive for the class of 2019.

As a potential preview of the future, watch him work:

Get it done, Coach Cal.
