Kentucky has been doing everything they can to secure the services of a former Louisville commit and they made another step in completing that task on Sunday.

Four-star forward out of the class of 2021, Bryce Hopkins, has cut his list of potential college choices down to just nine schools and the Wildcats made the cut. Along with UK, Hopkins also listed Michigan, Oregon, California, Iowa State, Illinois, Texas, Providence, and Indiana.

The Kentucky coaching staff has been staying strong on Hopkins, who decommitted from the Cardinals back on Aug. 8. Tony Barbee has been the lead recruiter for the 6-foot-7 power forward, who is ranked as the 33rd best player in his class according to 247 Sports composite rankings and the eighth-best power forward. Hopkins received an offer from the Wildcats not even two weeks after deciding to leave Lousiville and has since been considered a heavy Kentuck lean.

The 247 Sports Crystal Ball has logged six predictions for Hopkins since Aug. 22 with all of them favoring the ‘Cats. Jerry Meyer, who is the Director of Basketball Scouting for 247 Sports, plugged in a prediction for Kentucky eight days ago, just a day after Hopkins officially received an offer from the school.

KSR’s Jack Pilgrim recently sat down with Hopkins’ father, Clyde, who spoke about his son’s offer from Kentucky and the recruiting process since deciding to part ways with UL. You can check out that entire article here.
