The Kentucky Wildcats landed just their second 2016 commitment today when five-star big man Sacha Killeya-Jones made his pledge to UK.
While Jones is a huge get for John Calipari and Kentucky, they still have their eyes set on several other elite recruits in 2016, the biggest of which being five-star prospect Harry Giles. The 6-10 power forward from North Carolina is set to visit UK for Big Blue Madness, and he made sure to congratulate Killeya-Jones on his commitment to the Cats today:
@The_SKJ congrats on the commitment bro! Crazy seeing where you came from and now you headed to UK. Live it up— Harry Giles (@TheReal_HG3) August 19, 2015
Perhaps Killeya-Jones can now begin amping up the pressure on Giles to join him in UK's 2016 class. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better frontcourt in college basketball next year if Killeya-Jones and Giles are both at UK.
It's going to be hard to get Giles out of the state of North Carolina for his lone year of college basketball, but getting Killeya-Jones out of the Tar Heel state will certainly aid those efforts.
