This profile of James Wiseman bodes well for Kentucky

By now, you should be familiar with James Wiseman, the 2019 big man who plays for Penny Hardaway down in Memphis. On his way to Arkansas for tonight’s game, Kyle Tucker stopped by Memphis East to meet Wiseman, whom many are comparing to Karl Anthony-Towns, not only in terms of talent and smarts, but also because Kentucky is the heavy favorite to land him. There’s been talk that, like Towns, Wiseman could reclassify and move up a class, but Wiseman once again shot down that possibility and left the door slightly open with a sly “you never know.”

Regardless, it sounds like Kentucky remains in the driver’s seat despite growing buzz that Hardaway could land a college coaching job, maybe at Ole Miss or Memphis. A source tells Tucker that while many of Penny’s players would follow him, Wiseman’s got his mind made up.

“Some of these guys might,” said one person close to East High program, which has a half-dozen or more Division I prospects on the roster, “but James is going to Kentucky. That’s what he tells everybody.”

After watching him interact with fans and drink in the sights at Big Blue Madness, I can tell you Wiseman definitely wears his Kentucky blue on his sleeve. Do yourself a favor and go read Kyle’s profile to learn more about him.
