One Kentucky commit and a few targets have been invited to the 2018 USA Men’s U18 training camp.
Tyrese Maxey, Bryan Antoine, Keion Brooks and Scottie Lewis are four of the 32 players that have been invited to the camp.
Maxey, the one target of the four who is already a Kentucky commit, is the No. 13 player in the class of 2019, but is likely to reclassify to the class of 2018. The 6-3, 185-lb combo guard will represent Kentucky well at the camp, as he’s the No. 3 combo guard in his class.
For the other targets attending, Kentucky is in the best position for Scottie Lewis. His Crystal Ball is split three ways, with Kentucky, the Florida Gators and the Villanova Wildcats all taking one-third of the votes. Lewis is the No. 10 player in the class of 2019. Standing 6-5, 177 lbs, he’s the the No. 2 small forward in the class, albeit an undersized one at the college level. Calipari has visited Lewis three times this year, most recently on April 13.
Kentucky is also in the mix for Keion Brooks, though the Michigan State Spartans and the Indiana Hoosiers are seen as the favorites right now. Brooks, also a small forward, is the No. 23 player in the class of 2019 and the No. 5 player at his position. Brooks is 6-8, 185 lbs. Calipari and Tony Barbee visited Brooks on April 6.
The top-ranked player on the invite list among Kentucky’s targets is Antoine, who is the No. 7 player in the 2019 class. He’s a 6-5, 175-lb shooting guard, who’s the No. 1 player at his position in the class. Calipari last visited Antoine on April 13, along with Barbee. Kentucky has just 7 percent of the predictions in his Crystal Ball.
