V.J. King, the No. 2 small forward in the 2016 class, trimmed his list to five schools today and Kentucky made the cut. King is down to Arizona, Kentucky, Louisville, Virginia and UConn.
He recently announced that he will take his first official visit on May 19 to Louisville. Louisville assistant coach Kenny Johnson is a former assistant at King’s high school and they are very close.
If you’re picking the favorite today, it’s likely the Cards, although Kentucky has been high in the mix from the beginning.
