Kentucky visiting 2021’s top player, Johnathan Kuminga

Adam Zagoria of ZAGSBLOG reported earlier today that John Calipari would be traveling to The Patrick School in New Jersey to visit with the No. 1 player in the class of 2021, Johnathan Kuminga on Monday. The Elizabeth, NJ native is a small forward and stands at 6’8″ and 210 pounds. He’s been considered Duke’s to lose for a while, but it is interesting to see the Kentucky staff still making a push at him.

Andrew Slater from The Athletic also reported the same as Zagoria, and even followed up to our own Jack Pilgrim’s comments on the visit.

Kuminga is AAU teammates with Kentucky commit Lance Ware, so it can’t hurt to have another person in his ear talking up the Cats. Take a look at his highlights from this year’s Peach Jam below.

With four players already in the fold for John Calipari, he and his staff will have the time to really hone in on their remaining targets to attempt to add to the top class in the nation.

    Elite player but does anyone think TC and this kid can play together? I mean if they could it would be lights out man. In Cal we trust.

      I mean, getting Barrett and Zion was pretty insane. When we got AD and MKG, it made headlines too. Same with Wall and Cousins. Super teams in college are happening partly because the NBA has seen an uptick in so many of them too.

    This kid can play a little point fwd and power fwd. Two areas of need in UKs 2020 class. He’s a pretty heavy Duke lean, as is Patrick Baldwin Jr. If those two reclassed and became Devils that would certainly be a super team that might even outrank our class.

    Ah at one time I remember BOSTON was thought to be a Duke lean also… Anything can happen

    Whether he commits to us or not we will be fine. Cal has this.
