Five-star power forward, Jarred Vanderbilt has narrowed down his list to the final four schools and yes, Kentucky made the cut. Vanderbilt is also considering North Carolina, TCU and Oregon. Prior to tonight’s announcement, 247 sports’ crystal ball had reported the 6’8” forward at 50% Kentucky, 33% TCU, 11% Texas and 6% Kansas.
Vanderbilt has a few ties to Kentucky seeing as he played with De’Aaron Fox for the Houston Hoops, and we all know how aggressive of a recruiter Fox is. Malik Monk’s Arkansas Wings competed against Vanderbilt as well, who retweeted one of Monk’s encouraging “come to BBN” tweets earlier in the year.
Things are looking hopeful for Kentucky, but stay tuned to KSR for all of your recruiting updates on Jarred Vanderbilt and more!
