2020 UK target R.J. Hampton said Kentucky has been turning up the heat this summer. The 6-foot-4, 170-pound point guard from Little Elm, Texas (outside of Dallas) has a plethora of offers and it appears the Cats may be next.
Hampton blogged on USA Today the latest with his recruitment and it’s not just the Cats that have been turning up the head. Read that here.
“I would definitely say that Kentucky is coming on stronger and Memphis is too. I just hear from both of those schools more than I had been and they were at almost all of my games in Vegas.I still haven’t heard directly from Coach Cal, but I’ve heard from Coach Penny a lot more.”
He also mentions Duke, Kansas, Texas, TCU and Michigan as other schools recruiting him. If you’re into the crystal ball it has Duke the 75 percent favorite to land Hampton with eight predictions locked in at this point.
UK has only offered Scottie Barnes and N’Faly Dante in 2020 but I’d expect a few more 2020 offers to go out in the next month. Hampton should be included.
Here’s some Hampton highlights:
