Bol Bol is set to visit Kentucky for Big Blue Madness, according to Evan Daniels of Scout.com.

Bol has recently set up several official visits, including one with Kentucky on the weekend of Oct. 14. Big Blue Madness will take place on Oct. 13. That visit will come the week after Bol visits the USA Men’s Basketball Training Camp in Colorado Springs.

Bol is a 5-star power forward who is ranked the No. 3 recruit in the class of 2018 by 247 Sports. The son of Manute Bol, he’s one of the most versatile bigs in the class, as he can score inside and out and defend the rim.

Bol moved out to California during his high school career, and he’s expected to stay out west and pick either Arizona or USC.

However, several other schools are in the mix and his recruitment is anything but an open and shut case. Kentucky currently holds 10 percent of the predictions in his Crystal Ball. Bol was set to meet with Kentucky coaches this week.

He’s also set to visit to Oregon on Sept. 30, UCLA on October 21 and Arizona on Oct. 28. He has also tentatively scheduled a visit to USC on Nov. 4, but that date isn’t final, according to Daniels.
