For the second time in less than a week, Kentucky has received a commitment from a highly-touted wing.

Kahlil Whitney told ESPN’s Paul Biancardi he will be a Kentucky Wildcat.  ESPN’s second-ranked small forward and No. 14 player overall, Whitney’s decision comes just days after an unofficial visit to Lexington. Whitney joins five-star point guard Tyrese Maxey and Pendleton County sharpshooter Dontaie Allen in the Cats’ 2019 recruiting class.

The University of Kentucky unofficially celebrated the commitment with an ode to Anthony Davis, another Chicago native whose dreams came true in Kentucky blue.  Whitney currently attends Roselle Catholic in New Jersey, the alma mater of Isaiah Briscoe, who was on UK’s campus during Whitney’s unofficial visit.

Stay tuned for more on Whitney’s decision and what it means for the Wildcats.

    Gotta love Cal. Gets a decommitment from one wing. How does he respond? Gets commitments from TWO wings in a weeks time. No sleep lost.

    Now we know why DJ decommited. He was “no longer a priority” means he was getting recruited over, and he didn’t want to compete.

    Love reading all the delusional Illinois fans comments today. “He should stay home and build our program”. Lol

    They should have done a different video. This was perfect for Allen because he grew up a UK fan. Either way, glad to have him on board!
