2019 five-star center Oscar Tshiebwe just released his list of final four schools in his recruitment, and Kentucky made the cut.

The Cats join West Virginia, Illinois, and Baylor on his list:

Immediately after he cut his list, Tshiebwe told one outlet that he has an official visit scheduled to Kentucky on the weekend of September 28.

The 6-foot-9, 230-pound big man recently achieved five-star status on 247 Sports, jumping all the way up to No. 19 in the nation and the No. 5 center. The Cats are the only school on his list to not offer.

Earlier this month, Corey Evans of Rivals.com said he would put his money on Kentucky if they extend an offer.

“If I were a betting man, I would place the house on Tshiebwe ending up at West Virginia or Kentucky,“ Evans wrote. “The main caveat here is that UK has yet to offer. If they do, I would be surprised if he doesn’t commit to the Wildcats.”

Sources tell KSR that there is a significant chance Tshiebwe earns that offer and ends up in Kentucky’s class of 2019. Now that an official visit is scheduled, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he commits when he gets to Lexington next month.

He come.

    We need him. He’s an enforcer and already is built for the college game.

    Love the physicality of this young man! Is he a little bit raw? Of course he is, but with a little refinement he could have a very high ceiling. I would love to see him with Carey or Wiseman or Hurt. Would be a monster front court with any of the 2.
