KSR reported yesterday that Kentucky would visit UK commit Dontaie Allen today in Pendleton County, but there was a change of plans. UK was planning to see Isaiah Todd last week, but because of Hurricane Florence that in-home visit was moved to today and sources close to Allen tell KSR that the Cats will likely be by Thursday.
We haven’t heard too much about Todd, the 6-foot-9, 190-pound forward from Raleigh, N.C. He’s ranked as the No. 16 player in the class of 2020 and while he doesn’t yet have an offer from Kentucky, he does hold a plethora of offers including offers from Kansas, Baylor, Miami (Fla.), NC State, UCLA and Villanova.
UK has offered just Scottie Barnes and N’Faly Dante in the class of 2020. Generally John Calipari won’t offer players until the end of their junior seasons and sometimes not until their senior year, of course there are always a few exceptions.
We still have no idea what UK’s frontcourt in 2019-2020 will look like, so it’s impossible to predict the 2020-2021 frontcourt, but Todd seems like he would be a fun piece for the coach that lands him.
