Highlights from a Pair of UK Basketball Prospects

One of the nation’s best shooting guards, Gary Trent Jr. is a fringe Top 10 player in the Class of 2017.  Trent Jr. is a St. Paul, Minnesota native, staying in town when his father finished his NBA career with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Trent Jr. has been recruited by Kentucky, but most consider him Duke’s player to lose.  Trent Jr. could be a possible package deal with Wendell Carter, the #4 player in America that has UK, Duke and Harvard at the top of his list.  Even though Hamidou Diallo is considered as Cal’s top shooting guard prospect, his new highlight tape is worth taking a look.

DeAndre Ayton is considered the #1 prospect in America by most recruiting services. The 7-footer displays dynamic skills, with the ability to stretch the floor and shoot or protect the rim.

Ayton caught the attention of recruiting writers a few weeks ago at the Indianapolis EYBL when he said that pretty much everyone but Kansas had quit talking to him.  When the regular season wrapped up last weekend in Atlanta, he said that UK and Arizona are back in the fold and he plans on visiting in the near future.
