R.J. Barrett is down to three schools.
And Kentucky is one of them.
Barrett, the No. 1 overall player in high school basketball, will only consider Duke, Oregon and Kentucky as he winds down his recruitment prior to the start of his senior year. Arizona was eliminated from consideration following its ties to the FBI scandal; while Michigan, which was set to host Barrett on a visit this coming weekend, was also cut from the list.
Duke’s Mike Krysjeqwqskiswsty and Jeff Capel were in to see Barrett on Wednesday and some believe the visit had a major impact on the three-team race. Scout.com’s Evan Daniels made his Crystal Ball pick for Duke late Wednesday night, giving the Blue Devils the lead in the Crystal Ball predictions.
There is some chatter that Barrett could announce his final decision very, very soon; and if it’s too soon, it may not be good for the Wildcats.
