Lonnie Walker sets official visit with Kentucky Basketball

Which Wildcats will Lonnie Walker commit to? UK is still in the running.

Lonnie Walker will visit the Kentucky Wildcats after all.

After canceling his visit to UK this past weekend, it looked like a bad sign for the Cats in the recruitment of the five-star shooting guard out of Pennsylvania. However, Scout.com’s Evan Daniels reports Walker has re-scheduled his visit for the first weekend of November.

A 6-5 shooting guard that currently plays for Reading High School in Reading, Pennsylvania, Walker currently ranked as the third best shooting guard and 21st overall prospect in the 2017 recruiting, according to 247 Sports Composite. ESPN ranks him 19th overall and the top prospect from Pennsylvania.

Walker is currently set to visit Villanova for their annual Hoops Mania event on Friday night. He’ll follow that up with a visit to UK next week. He visited Arizona on the weekend of October 14th.

Those three programs are viewed as the biggest contenders for Walker. While Arizona has all of the moment right now, don’t ever count out John Calipari and UK when they can get a recruit on campus for an official visit.
