Kentucky Basketball Recruiting: Iowa State emerging as favorite for KyKy Tandy

The Kentucky high schooler has plenty of interest from out of state.

KyKy Tandy has continued to succeed, and programs other than Kentucky have continued to take note.

According to Rivals’ Corey Evans, the Iowa State Cyclones are in great shape to land the 2019 combo guard as of right now.

The Cyclones are looking to replace former point guard Monte Morris, who graduated in 2017 after scoring 1,708 career points.

KyKy Tandy may be the likeliest to pledge to the Big 12 program as Iowa State has recruited the Kentucky native the hardest up until the spring evaluation periods. He has seen a few offers trickle in recently, but none that might dethrone the Cyclones as the favorite. If Louisville were to offer, things could change but, at ISU remains in a good spot.

There’s likely a connection with current Iowa State head coach Steve Prohm, who was at Murray State from 2006-15, so he’s very familiar with recruits from the Bluegrass.

The 6-foot-1-inch, 160-lb Tandy from Hopkinsville currently has 11 offers, including offers from Iowa State, the Tennessee Volunteers, the Florida Gators, the Auburn Tigers, the Ole Miss Rebels and the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

There’s just one prediction in his crystal ball, but it is for Kentucky, despite them not having offered yet.

Tandy is currently a four-star recruit in 247 Sports’ Composite and ranked 144th overall in the lass of 2019. He certainly looks like someone worthy of a UK offer, but some other factors may help keep that from coming.

Do you think Kentucky will offer Tandy?
