Virginia Tech graduate transfer Kerry Blackshear Jr. is expected to officially visit Kentucky on Tuesday.
And if the UK coaching staff has it their way, he won’t be leaving Lexington without signing on the dotted line.
According to Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers.com, the same reporter to break the Blackshear visit news last night, said that there is “major” mutual interest and Kentucky is confident they can land the 6-foot-11 forward during the visit.
More on my Kentucky-KBJ report yesterday: Hearing the major interest between the two sides are mutual, UK is extremely hopeful they could land Blackshear on this visit. Texas A&M still vying for a visit. https://t.co/jNQnKwGqBC

KSR has confirmed Weingarten’s original report that Blackshear Jr. is expected to be in Lexington for an official visit starting tomorrow evening. I will have more on Kentucky’s growing confidence in landing the top graduate transfer on the market in this week’s edition of Pilgrim’s Insider Notes, which will be published tomorrow around lunchtime.
Blackshear, a Second-Team All-ACC selection last season, averaging 14.9 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. He also led the Hokies with 28 blocked shots and ranked third with 83 assists.
Before his visit to Kentucky, Blackshear visited Florida, Arkansas, and Tennessee.
Bring him home, Coach Cal.
