WATCH: Armando Bacot’s Peach Jam MVP Highlights



One big man burst onto the scene at the Peach Jam to grab the attention of the Kentucky coaching staff.

Armando Bacot Jr., a top 25 player overall and the No. 7 center in the 2019 recruiting class, heard from Kentucky after crushing the competition at the Peach Jam.  Even though the Cats have quite a few elite posts in mind — Vernon Carey Jr. and James Wiseman, just to name a few — Bacot proved he’s among the best of the best.

In eight games at the Peach Jam, Bacot averaged 11.6 points (54.1 FG%) and 12.1 rebounds per game.  He earned MVP honors after scoring 14 points and grabbing 14 rebounds on 6-of-8 shooting to lead Team Takeover to a Peach Jam Title.  See the best of the best from Bacot’s week in North August, South Carolina:

    Plays similar to Bolden. For him to be so highly ranked shows how shallow this class is of elite players. There will of course be risers that elevate their game in college that are 4 star guys that will become one and done like SGA
