Kira Lewis Jr. commits, will play against UK THIS year

One time UK target Kira Lewis Jr. has committed to Alabama and will reclassify to the class of 2018. The 6-foot-3, 160-pound guard trimmed his list just over a week ago but picked Alabama over 11 other schools that featured Kansas, Auburn, Providence, LSU, Ole Miss, Iowa State, Baylor, Indiana, Houston, Georgia and TCU. The Cats didn’t make that cut but UK didn’t watch much of Lewis this summer and contact had been limited since he visited UK a few months ago.

But the big news here is that Lewis Jr. will be enrolling at Alabama for this season.

Lewis Jr. is a good point guard that maybe in a different year lands an offer from the Cats, but the fact he’s looking to play this season means there was no chance Kentucky would have taken him. He’s been called the fastest player in the class of 2019 and there’s no denying he has great potential. Now the Cats will have to scheme to find ways to slow him down early in 2019.

Best of luck to Kira and way to go not picking Indiana. The Cats will see you soon.

    Ok, this reclassifying stuff needs a cut off date. I mean, how can a kid graduate high school early one week and be playing college ball the next week.
