Kentucky Hosts Five-Star Big Man
We all know Coach Cal has an affinity for big men. With elite forwards Wenyen Gabriel and Sacha Killeya-Jones in the fold for 2016, Coach Cal has his eyes on five-star center Jarrett Allen. The Wildcats currently have Skal Labissiere, Isaac Humphries and Marcus Lee on the roster, but depending on how well they all play, all three can be gone next season.
The 6’10 Allen has had a fairly quiet recruitment for a five-star big. He has only taken three visits: Notre Dame, Kansas and Houston. He was originally supposed to visit Kentucky last week, but pushed it back a week and went to in-state Houston instead. He’s been to Texas unofficially, and has offers from Indiana, North Carolina and Kansas State. Allen hasn’t said whether he will sign during the early period or play out his senior season.
Kentucky is also heavily involved with five-star bigs Edrice “Bam” Adebayo and Marques Bolden.
