Kentucky basketball: 5-star PF Wenyen Gabriel commits to UK
John Calipari just added his third highly-rated power forward of the year.
That’d be 5-star prospect Wenyen Gabriel, who committed on Thursday after paying a visit to Lexington this past weekend. Scout.com’s Evan Daniels had the scoop on Twitter.
Gabriel is a 6-foot-9 power forward out of Wilbraham, Mass. According to 247Sports.com, he is the No. 16 player in the class of 2016, and the No. 4 power forward. Gabriel was also strongly considering Duke and Maryland.
Kentucky now has a trio of post players in its new class: Gabriel, 5-star power forward Sacha Killeya-Jones and 4-star power forward Tai Wynyard, who is slated to enroll in December.
