He received an offer from Kentucky…

He took his official visit to Kentucky…

October 16, 2015 — Big Blue Madness

He also visited…

LSU (9/19); Louisville (9/26); and Kansas (10/09)

What they’re saying…

ESPN Recruiting:

Fox is a long and super quick combination guard that excels on the break and makes plays in the halfcourt with pull ups and slashes in between defenders. He is a rhythm scorer that can put up numbers in a hurry when confident, aggressive and doesn’t worry about his position. [ESPN]

Jerry Meyer, 247Sports:

“Basically, I see everything you want to see in a point guard. It would be very difficult to identify a major weakness in his game. Obviously, there’s room to improve and polish up his game, but he has the entire skill package, and the athleticism, length and intangibles you look for in a point guard.” [Herald-Leader]

An athletic and quick guard, Fox sits in between the point guard and shooting guard positions. But that’s part of what makes him so dangerous. Fox has a solid handle, is effective driving the basketball and is a talented passer, but he’s also just as — if not more — effective playing off the ball in a scoring role. He’s comfortable pulling up off the dribble for jump shots and is a very good scorer in transition. [Scout]

KSR’s take…

Another year, another five-star point guard for John Calipari. This time, he’ll land one in the mold of John Wall; an electrifying, athletic guard that is incredibly skilled and can play in a hurry, but under control. Fox will have NBA GMs salivating once he gets to Lexington, and he will only get better with the potential addition of Malik Monk to the class. 2016-17 will feature yet another exciting backcourt at Kentucky.

Watch his latest mixtape…


Two hours until decision time. In the meantime, buy a mattress.

    This dude is a monster… Been a while since a mix tape has gotten me this excited

    He’s special. I did not know he was that bouncy! He got John Wall hops. He should be considered the best in the class especially now since Harry now has TWO busted knees. Him and Monk on the same team? That’s INSANE.

    All that was missing was the Shamgod, the rest was on par with John’s HoopMixtape. Can’t wait to get him in BLUE. Throw in Monk and OH MY GOD!

    Wow, very diverse player! I see glimpses of Rondo, Wall, and Knight in those highlights. Duke can have Giles and Tatum if we get Fox and Monk!
