James Wiseman gets Kentucky’s first 2019 offer



We’re in the thick of 2018 recruiting, but it’s worth mentioning that John Calipari just handed out his first offer in the 2019 class. James Wiseman, a five-star power forward out of Memphis, Tennessee, received a scholarship offer today during a visit with Calipari. Pat Lawless of MADE Hoops was the first to report the news, but Wiseman quickly confirmed it on Twitter:

Adorably, his mother tweeted out a pic from the visit:

Arizona, Kansas, Louisville, and North Carolina have also offered Wiseman, ESPN’s top player in the 2019 class. This summer, he won a gold medal at the FIBA Americas with the USA U16 squad and played for Team Penny on the EYBL circuit. He recently transferred to East High School in Memphis from Ensworth in Nashville, where he averaged 20.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game last season.

    We need to get that kid out of louisville. What’s his name? Charles Bassey?

    I feel like we’re completely glazing over the fact that Penny Hardaway is in this picture.

    10cdthomas, I was wondering the same thing. Judging by the “E” on Penny’s shirt, he is probably the coach or on the coaching staff of Wiseman’s high school. Also, if that is his house, Wiseman lives in a very nice house.

    Also, ever since it was mentioned on the site, Cal has done the tippy toe thing in every picture that you can see his feet lol
