The Kentucky Wildcats are quickly building their big board for 2019.
After offering James Wiseman and D.J. Jeffries this past week, John Calipari has offered two more 2019 stars. It came Sunday when Calipari offered Scottie Lewis and Bryan Antoine, according to Pat Lawless.

The five-star pair of Antoine and Lewis, a backcourt tandem that has been playing together since the seventh grade, are high school teammates and played for Team Rio in the Under Armour Showcase this year.
Antoine and Lewis are ranked No. 3 and 5 respectively in 2019 by 247. That’s the highest ranking for Antoine, who is ranked No. 7 overall by Rivals and No. 8 by Scout. Lewis’ highest ranking is No. 4 by Scout, while Rivals has him at No. 8.
The two have plenty of schools heavily recruiting them, including Duke, Florida, Maryland and Villanova among others. You can now include UK in that bunch, and it will be interesting to see how fast these recruitments speed up now that they have offers from Calipari.
The two also become the first guards to be offered by UK in 2019. The 6-5 Lewis is regarded as a shooting guard/wing-type player, where the 6-4 Antoine is more of a combo guard.
