Yesterday, Corey Evans of Rivals.com reported that Calipari would be in to see 2020 five-star combo guard RJ Hampton.

Hampton, who is strongly considering a jump to 2019, is considered a consensus top-five prospect in his current class of 2020. He has a final list of four, with Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, and Memphis making the cut.
Boston and Cooper, a pair of consensus top-25 prospects out of Georgia, both play for Athletes of Tomorrow on the Nike EYBL circuit. For Boston, Kentucky and Duke are seen as the favorites, while Cooper seems to be favoring both Kentucky and Auburn.
Kentucky has offered eleven prospects in the 2020 class:
- PG: Jeremy Roach, Sharife Cooper
- SG: Jalen Green, BJ Boston
- CG: RJ Hampton
- SF: Jalen Johnson, Scottie Barnes, Johnny Juzang
- PF: Isaiah Todd
- C: Cliff Omoruyi, N’Faly Dante
KSR will be in Atlanta this weekend for session one of the 2019 Nike EYBL event, where all three Kentucky targets will be participating.
