2019 5-Star Forward Matthew Hurt talks UK and UofL

Kansas may have an edge at the moment in his recruitment, but 247’s no. 6 overall 2019 prospect Matthew Hurt is still in the thick of AAU season. There is plenty of time left for the tides to change, and what two other schools are looking to land his services? Kentucky and Louisville.

The Courier Journal’s Jeff Greer got a few words in with the big fella:

Not much to be read into yet, but interesting perspective nonetheless. John Calipari and Chris Mack both watched Hurt on Friday, and if you were wondering just what they see in the big man…

    After watching him play a whole game (not just highlight reels) I have to say that the Kyle Wiltjer comparisons are not as accurate as some think. He is much more fluid, athletic and skilled as an all-around player. He definitely needs to improve on the defensive end, but most high school players do! Everyone that I’ve asked that are close to him think he will end up at KU, but I’m hoping he realizes how good he could be in Calipari’s “postionless” scheme with a bunch of shooters!

    Is it just me or does his jumper look identical to birds jumper? Damn he may need to hit the weight room but he certainly is a legit player who will help any team he ends up going with.

    What a highlight tape! Does a little of everything and looks much more coordinated/athletic then wiltjer. No matter what the roster looks like we should have a spot for this guy.

    If he’s interested in Louisville, stay away from him because he’s a low moral, cheating, dirty whore loving lowlife. Chris mack and that whole bunch are dirty pedifiles.
