Maxey joins Kentucky targets Matthew Hurt and Cole Anthony on the list.

UK targets Keion Brooks and Jalen Lecque did not make the final roster.

Maxey released the following tweet celebrating the big news:

According to those in Colorado Springs over the last week, Maxey was easily one of the top performers and separated himself from the pack of elite guards in attendance.
