On Saturday, Kentucky and North Carolina played one of the best college basketball games of the season.
It looks like the battle between the two is just getting started and not relegated to on the court. Highly touted 5-star small forward Jarred Vanderbilt dropped his final four on Sunday, which included the Wildcats and the Tar Heels, as well as TCU and Oregon.

Vanderbilt is the No. 6 small forward and No. 20 overall player in the country, according to 247Sports. He is ranked higher than any other member of the current North Carolina Class of 2017 and would be the third-highest Kentucky player, although neither of the two players rated above him are small forwards.
Vanderbilt has officially visited three of the schools on his list, according to 247Sports. He visited TCU on Sept. 16, North Carolina on Oct. 14 and Kentucky on Oct. 22.
Kentucky has 247Sports’ No. 1 class, which has four members, with three being 5-star recruits. North Carolina ranks 24th and has yet to pull in a 5-star recruit.
