For several weeks back in late January and early February, rumors of 2020 five-star power forward Isaiah Todd reclassifying to the class of 2019 spread like wildfire.

On January 24, Corey Evans of broke the news that Todd was “investigating the proper avenues for a reclassification into the 2019 class and thus, a college enrollment this fall.”

From there, KSR was able to confirm that there was mutual interest between Todd and Kentucky in the 6-foot-10 forward joining UK’s 2019 recruiting class. In fact, I was told at one point it would be a major surprise if he didn’t make the jump.

His academics are in order and the talent is certainly there, it was just up to him to decide whether or not he was ready to say goodbye to high school yet.

And according to Adam Zagoria of, we finally have our answer.

Isaiah Todd’s mother said this afternoon that her son will not reclassify and will stick with his original class of 2020. 

But just because he’s sticking with the class of 2020 doesn’t mean it changes things with the mutual interest between Todd and Kentucky. In fact, I’m told that Kentucky is still the favorite to land the 6-foot-10 forward out of Richmond, VA.

With this decision, we will see Todd compete on the Nike EYBL circuit this summer for Team Melo, with the first major event coming in Atlanta from April 26-28.

KSR will be there to talk to Todd, along with all of the other participating elite prospects.

    I really get tired of seeing the “Kentucky is the favorite” to get the kid. Simply interest between schools. As many “UK favorites” I’ve seen on here over the last few years we could fill 3-4 teams per year.

      When UK is a “long time favorite” for a player it means the player isn’t coming to Kentucky. Players know when they are ready for Kentucky and you can look at the 2019 class as proof. Maxey commits early at towards the end of his jr year, Whitney gets an offer, visits, then commits in less than 3 weeks, Allen visits, gets offers, the commits in 5 day span, the grad transfer visited and committed immediately, and Brooks took a long time because he is in the state on Indiana and didn’t want to be a villain his entire senior season, otherwise he would’ve committed after his last official visit in November, he only visited one school again after that and it was Kentucky.

      Gives them time to look around. And apparently you can get a free million dollar home going to Duke.
