Maxey signs LOI, officially becomes a Wildcat

Tyrese Maxey is officially a Kentucky Wildcat.

The five-star guard, ranked ninth overall in the 2018 class, signed his Letter of Intent to solidify his spot as a member of the Cats’ next class of talent on Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period.

Maxey is the first of UK’s three commits to ink his LOI. Dontaie Allen will sign on the dotted line in a ceremony at his school on Friday, but it’s unclear when (or if) Kahlil Whitney will sign his.

Go Cats.

    The LOI is such a one sided agreement. I don’t see why a legit top 10-15 recruit would EVER sign a LOI. If you’re a 4* recruit, then yeah you better lock down your roster spot if you really, really want to go to your chosen school. But a roster spot will always be there for a recruit like Whitney. Too bad for us fans (and coaching staff) as we sweat it out until he hits campus, but I see no downside for Whitney himself for not signing.

    Looks like a crowded backcourt next year. Can’t envision any of the three PGs on the roster being drafted in the first 2 rounds. Will they all still come back?

    this kid gonna b fun to watch.maybe best guard we have gotten in awhile and we have had some big time guards recently.i see him developing similiar to fox but more advanced offensively but not as quick defensively cause fox can fly
