Kentucky will meet with 2019 five-star guard Scottie Lewis on Monday. Lewis’ teammate, Bryan Antoine, was once a Kentucky target but committed to Villanova earlier this week. Lewis and Antoine haven’t ruled out playing together in college but have said they will make individual decisions on their college recruitment.
Let’s hope so.
But the Cats will continue to make Lewis a priority in 2019. Earlier this summer Lewis cut his list to seven- UK, Duke, Villanova, Stanford, Harvard, Florida and St. John’s. Florida and UK are the perceived leaders, but Duke was considered the leader in Antoine’s recruitment before he committed to Jay Wright. Antoine did a good job keeping things quiet and Lewis is doing more of the same.
September is going to be a crazy busy month for UK’s staff. Here’s how things currently look (this list will be updated):
9/8- Official visit: James Wiseman.
9/9 In-home visit: Matthew Hurt and Zeke Nnaji.
9/10- In-home visit: Scottie Lewis.
9/10- In-home visit: Aidan Igiehon
9/11- In-home visit: Vernon Carey Jr.
9/12- In-home visit: James Wiseman
9/13- In-home visit: Oscar Tshiebwe (tentative and it could be a day before or after)
9/15- Official visit: Scottie Lewis
9/29- Official visit: Oscar Tshiebwe
10/12- Big Blue Madness: R.J. Hampton, Vernon Carey (official), Dontaie Allen (official), Khristian Lander, Matthew Hurt (official)
So, that covers everyone but Cole Anthony in 2019, but I’m told UK will see him and he is likely to officially visit Kentucky this fall. We still don’t have confirmations on when UK commits Kahlil Whitney and Tyrese Maxey will return to Lexington. Whitney has already used his official visit, but Maxey’s official is available. My guess would be UK would love to get both those guys in town for Big Blue Madness.
Did I miss something? Let me know.
