Just hours after decommitting from Florida State today, Kentucky has reportedly reached out to five-star guard Bryce McGowens.

According to Jake Weingarten of, UK was one of many schools to reach out to the top-25 prospect, along with the likes of Georgia, Arizona, Nebraska, Virginia Tech, Iowa State, and South Carolina.

McGowens, a 6-foot-4, 175-pound shooting guard out of Greenville (S.C.) Legacy Early College, originally committed to Florida State back in February, choosing the Seminoles over offers from Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and South Carolina, among others.

The five-star guard is considered the No. 25 overall prospect in the 247Sports Composite Rankings for 2021 and is ranked as high as No. 23 in the class by Rivals.

Prior to news of Kentucky reaching out, recruiting insider Andrew Slater hinted at “elite recruiters” reaching out and noting his desire for a “clearer path” to showcase his talent and play in the NBA.

Kentucky currently has one commitment in the class of 2021 from four-star point guard Nolan Hickman, with the UK staff also having offers extended to Jaden Hardy, Patrick Baldwin Jr., Hunter Sallis, Daimion Collins, Moussa Diabate, and Bryce Hopkins.

Check out some of McGowens’ most recent highlights below:

    I note that the Matt Jones/Andrew Yang piece isn’t open to comments, so I will go off-topic for a moment in order to allow a little sunshine to penetrate KSR’s curtain of censorship. KSR’s propensity to disallow comments suggests that it does not trust or respect its fan base. If KSR posts an article, it should willing to entertain critical responses that are civil and on point, even if the responses are judged politically incorrect by KSR. KSR’s censorship smacks of elitism, arrogance, and, again, a lack of respect for its readership. This needed to be said and I hope that it survives the screening process.

      Long time reader, first time commenter…been waiting to see this as it needs to be said. I can’t express how off putting it is when comments are turned off the way they’ve been in recent weeks. I find myself coming here less and less.

      Well said VACat and I totally agree. It’s clear KSR doesn’t care about facts or opinions other than theirs, much like the Mainstream Media who tells you what to believe and not the facts.

      It’s how liberalism works. We encourage all speech as long as it agrees with liberal ideals. Main stream liberal networks operate the same.

      This needs to be the first comment on every post. Well stated, VC.

    I would add that Matt, who clearly has political ambitions, should take a look at his organization and those who represent it, and ensure that responsible free speech is tolerated and encouraged. Heading-up an organization that practices censorship could prove to be a liability in the political arena.

    What’s funny is all you whiners didn’t make one mention of the actual content of the post you are complaining about. Yet, you have multiple other threads, including here, to make you big grand political statement about Matt’s point. Methinks you are just whiny little babies like your hero the orange-hued super spreader.

      Why am I not surprised the reason for the above comments went right over little Johnny’s head?
