Kentucky basketball gets last chance to impress No. 1 point guard
Kentucky has earned the final home visit for 5-star point guard De’Aaron Fox, and it’s going down on Monday night.
Fox is the No. 3-rated player in the country, and the No. 1 point guard. The 6-foot-4 senior from Texas has already hosted LSU, Kansas and Arizona, and will now hear what the folks from Lexington have to say, according to tweets from ESPN’s Paul Biancardi and Jeff Borzello.
Fox has long held the Wildcats in high esteem. Back in August, he told Scout.com’s Evan Daniels that the two places he most wanted to visit were Kentucky and Kansas.
“Coach Cal is the one of the best guys at getting guys to the league,” Fox told Daniels. “Being able to bring top talent together and teach them how to play the game and play together. He’s probably second to none. Kentucky just wins no matter who he puts on the court.”
Originally from Louisiana, Fox considers LSU his hometown team. He has offers from more than a dozen schools, including Louisville, North Carolina, Arkansas and Texas.
Kentucky’s 2016 class already includes 5-star power forward Sacha Killeya-Jones (Lynchburg, Va.) and 4-star power forward Tai Wynyard (New Zealand), though it is possible Wynyard will enroll early in December and join the Wildcats during the 2015-16 season.
