One of the nation’s top big men has scheduled an official visit to Kentucky.

Greg Brown, a consensus top-ten prospect in the class of 2020, will make his trip to Lexington on January 10-12.

ESPN’s Paul Biancardi was the first to break the news.

Back in August, Brown shocked the recruiting world by including Kentucky in his final list of five schools left in contention.

While it’s no surprise that an elite prospect is interested in UK, the 6-foot-9 big man didn’t have a confirmed offer from the Wildcats and left them out of his top-ten back in February. During media opportunities at various recruiting events, Brown never even mentioned Kentucky as a realistic option, especially throughout this past AAU season.

After including the Wildcats, though, Brown’s father spoke with David Sisk of and told him that not only did his son receive an offer from Kentucky back in July right after Peach Jam, they had also been making a point of keeping their mutual interest and regular contact as quiet as possible to add shock value when the news did finally break.

Brown’s final list includes Kentucky, Texas, Memphis, North Carolina, and Auburn, with the Longhorns being considered as the favorite at this time.

247 Sports Director of Basketball Scouting Jerry Meyer loves Brown’s game, specifically when it comes to his elite athleticism:

“Long and freakily athletic. Runs like the wind. Needs to physically fill out. Terrific finisher in transition. Quick straight-line driver in half court. Jump shot progressing and has potential. Shot blocker with defensive versatility. Shaky ballhandler. Has tremendous upside that could place him in lottery at the draft.”

Check out some of his most recent highlights below:

Come on down, big fella.

    With all of the recruit names flying around, I almost forgot about him! I’d love to see either him or Jackson, w/ their high energy styles, paired up w/ the skill level of Isiah Todd in the front court.

    What’s your gut telling you on this kid’s decision Jack? Sounds like Texas is out in front, but obviously he holds a special tier for us.

    I’d like to know why all the secrecy surrounding UK and this kid.

    I don’t quite understand why a bunch of these kids are including Memphis.

      Penny is cool and has the hip hop rappers from here doing a big show. If he can coach, he will be dangerous in future recruiting.

      I don’t either, current recruits never saw penny play. Methinks money talks
