Team Rio AAU director, Brian Klatsky, told Kentucky Sports Radio that Bryan Antoine and Scottie Lewis won’t visit Kentucky the same weekend. It was reported earlier this week that Antoine will visit Kentucky on September 22nd for his official visit. We don’t know when Lewis will officially visit Kentucky, but when he does Klatsky said it won’t be Sept. 22.
“(It will be) separate dates,” he texted KSR.
The two play for the same AAU team and high school, but they haven’t said they are a package deal for the next level. Antoine is considering UK, Duke, Villanova, Florida and Kansas and has visits set for the first four schools. Lewis is considering Duke, Florida, Harvard, St. John’s to go with the Cats.
Many have thought Duke to be the leader for Antoine (the 247 Crystal Ball is 93 percent Duke, 7 percent UK), but Klatsky said there is no favorite and he will go into his official visits this fall wide open. UK did enough to earn a visit so anything is possible, especially when you consider that Klatsky said Antoine admires UK.
“Bryan has always admired UK,” he said. “He is most impressed at the way players develop in the UK environment. There have been loose comparisons to him and Shai Alexander. The program enables players to compete and develop everyday. It’s a special environment.”
That doesn’t sound too bad. The Cats will likely just need to add one guard to join Tyrese Maxey for next season, two if Calipari wants to be greedy. Kentucky seems to be in a solid spot with Cole Anthony, Scottie Lewis and Antoine, so assuming UK can land one the backcourt will once again be a strength in 2019-2020.
