Why Kahlil Whitney is not signing today

Kentucky added a pair of new Wildcats to the 2019-20 roster this morning. Keion Brooks and Nate Sestina signed and submitted their paperwork, making their commitments official.

John Calipari is still actively recruiting a few other players to add to the class. One player has committed, but not yet signed.

McDonald’s All-American Kahlil Whitney will not join Sestina, Brooks and the rest of the class until May 3. Whitney plays prep school ball at New Jersey’s Roselle Catholic. He’s waiting to sign in front of friends, family and his community at an elementary school near his Chicago home.

“My ultimate goal by doing that is to give them something inspiring to witness, hopefully,” he told Mass Live.

Typically, a delayed signing draws causes to concern. Whitney’s decision should encourage fans. Even at a young age, he is using his talent to make a difference in his community.

This weekend Whitney will be spending time with Brooks, Tyrese Maxey and Jaden McDaniels at the Jordan Brand Classic. Jack Pilgrim will be bringing you coverage all weekend from Las Vegas. Until then, enjoy the trailer for a documentary following Whitney’s senior season titled, “Year of the Dragon.”

      I really like this incoming class. I really think we’re gonna be great next year. Maybe lose a few early, but with ash, quick, ej and nick’s experience and leadership, the sky is the limit
