The Kentucky Wildcats have given out another scholarship offer in 2019.

This time, it’s big man Vernon Carey getting offered by John Calipari.

Carey is regarded as one of a top 2-3 prospects in every major recruiting service. He’s ranked No. 1 overall by 247 Sports, while Scout, ESPN and Rivals have him at No. 2 behind James Wiseman, who was offered last week by UK.

The 6-9, 245-pound power forward hails from University School in Fort Lauderdale (FL). He already holds offers from Duke, Florida, Kansas, UConn, Miami, Florida State, North Carolina, Michigan State and Louisville among many others. He’s set to unofficially visit Michigan State this weekend.

UK has now extended offers to D.J. Jeffries, Bryan Antoine, Scottie Lewis, Wiseman and Carey in the Class of 2019.
