The Cats seem to be the favorite for a highly-touted 2019 guard who has some crazy mixtapes.

2019 combo guard Marcedus Leech has said he is taking an unofficial visit to Kentucky on July 2, according to D1Vision.

The 6’6” guard has offers from Kansas, Iowa State, Miami, Missouri, New Mexico State, Saint Louis, Texas Tech, Vanderbilt, Washington, Wichita State and more. Kentucky hasn’t offered (Cal never offers this early), but there’s been interest. If Leech gets the offer, the Cats will be the favorites.

“I haven’t been offered by Kentucky, but they’ve shown a lot of interest and hopefully I’ll get that offer,” Leech said. “That’s been my dream since I was a kid. If I get that offer, they’ll be on the top of my list.”

Leech, the No. 21 player in his class according to 247 Sports, also said he likes everything about Kentucky, including their pace and what John Calipari does with his players. Leech says he won’t decide until after his high school career has concluded, but he already has the ideal school in mind.

“I’m looking for a great academic school as well as basketball,” he said. “A lot of people just go for the basketball schools but I like to be a high academic guy as well as on the court.”
