Kentucky offers 2020 four-star center Cliff Omoruyi



Kentucky head coach John Calipari is looking to add yet another commitment to his long list of past recruits out of New Jersey, and more specifically, Roselle Catholic High School.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Nick Richards all came from the the Garden State, while Isaiah Briscoe and current 2019 Kentucky commitment Kahlil Whitney both came from Roselle Catholic.

Yesterday, Calipari made the trip to offer yet another prospect out of New Jersey, this time being 2020 four-star center and Roselle Catholic product Clifford Omoruyi.

Omoruyi, Whitney’s high school teammate, is considered a consensus top-60 prospect and one of the highest-risers in the class. At 6-foot-11, 235 pounds, Omoruyi has been compared to current NBA players Clint Capela and Mitchell Robinson due to his high motor and ridiculous length. While he currently holds a four-star rating, most recruiting analysts believe he will see a significant jump by the time his senior season rolls around.

The 2020 big man also holds offers from Florida, Auburn, Indiana, Ohio State, West Virginia, Syracuse, Virginia, and Georgia, among several others.

Omoruyi becomes the tenth player and just the second center (N’Faly Dante) in the class of 2020 to receive an offer from John Calipari.

Here are all of the scholarship offers Kentucky has extended for 2020:

PG: Jeremy Roach, Sharife Cooper

SG: Jalen Green, BJ Boston

CG: RJ Hampton

SF: Jalen Johnson, Scottie Barnes

PF: Isaiah Todd

C: Cliff Omoruyi, N’Faly Dante

      I’m confused . So you hope we will get him ? I hope contradicting yourself was on purpose . If not , you gotta watch those double negatives bud.

      I think he just forgot that commas are his friend.

      I think that’s what everyone was thinking about SGA and Herro.
