Just days after word spread that Kentucky had previously cut ties with Brandon Huntley-Hatfield, the Wildcats did not make his final list of schools.

The five-star power forward out of the class of 2022 was at one point considered a Kentucky-lean, but sources recently told KSR that the two sides have not spoken since July. Huntley-Hatfield, who is considered the No. 6 recruit in his class according to 247 Sports, is now down to Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee, Kansas, Virginia Tech, Lousiville, Ole Miss, and Wake Forest.

Huntley-Hatfield is the cousin of former Kentucky player Alex Poythress and at one point referred to the ‘Cats as his dream school. The 6-foot-9 big man initially tweeted on Tuesday that he was trimming his list down to just six schools, but ultimately decided to add another two. Even still, Kentucky did not make the cut.

Within the last three days, four different Crystal Ball predictions have been logged on 247 Sports for Huntley-Hatfield with all four analysts expecting his choice to be the Ole Miss Rebels.

    Don’t need the loser here lazy with a bad attitude attempted to tell Cal he was only going to play a certain position, You know Cal don’t play that game with nobody. He don’t allow players to talk back and run his program if you do your not playing or put off the team with a quickness..

      Buckle up. I think he’s about to give players full reign of the program if Keion is any example.

    The Sources Say guys say that his recruitment became a package deal with his AAU Coach, former Vol Bobby Maze (you know – who was torched by Jodie Meeks for 54 and still kept trash talking), and that’s when Cal said see ya’.

    Please tell me why there is something news worthy about a recruit who we openingly STOPPED recruiting would include us ? Is it a story if every recruit who we either have not recruited or are no longer actively recruiting announces his finalists and we aren’t included ? Just another attention grabbing headline.
