Kentucky has extended its first offer in the class of 2022.

This afternoon, 2022 five-star forward and No. 6 overall prospect Brandon Huntley-Hatfield announced on Twitter that the Kentucky coaching staff has officially offered him a scholarship.

Huntley-Hatfield, a 6-foot-8, 200-pound power forward out of Bradenton, FL, is considered the No. 6 overall prospect in the 2020 247Sports player rankings and No. 9 in the 247Sports Composite. lists Huntley-Hatfield at No. 8 overall in their 2022 rankings, with ESPN putting him at No. 23 overall.

Kentucky is the sixth school to offer the top power forward prospect in the 2022 class, with the Wildcats joining Auburn, Ole Miss, Baylor, Seton Hall, and Wake Forest.

A native of Clarksville, TN, Huntley-Hatfield is actually a cousin of former UK forward Alex Poythress, with the five-star sophomore also adding in the past that Kentucky is his dream school.

“Being my dream school growing up … for them to have interest in me, I’m really blessed,” he said in a recent interview with Ben Roberts of the Herald-Leader. “I feel like Kentucky has played a really big role in players’ development in the NBA. They’ve got a lot of guys to the league. And I know a lot of schools can do that, but I just feel like Kentucky is one of those powerhouses. And I feel like I want to be a part of that.

“Kentucky has always been my number one school growing up.”

      I hope we land elite talent at some point. The last can’t miss talent we had was Fox, this is why the last few seasons have been a bit boring.

      Kinda hard to land elite talent when they are being paid to go other places. And if you don’t think Terrence Clarke is elite, wait till he gets on the court. Also, Tyrese Maxey is no scrub.

    By the time this kid is a senior he is going to be an absolute stud. Would love to sign him.

      Agreed. But if he’s good enough, I’ll forget about it

      Maybe it should be The Kentucky University…? Yeah, it bugged me too, but I’m not gonna get bent about high schooler who doesn’t know the names of schools.

      Just came to verify I wasn’t alone in this. Thanks for the validation. I’ll hang up and listen.
