Kahlil Whitney trims list and UK makes the cut

Whitney is nearing the end of his recruitment as he’s set to visit Kentucky.

Ahead of his official visit to Kentucky on Friday, Kahlil Whitney has announced his list of eight schools still in consideration.

To no surprise, the Wildcats wee included along with the Louisville Cardinals, Illinois Fighting Illini, Oregon Ducks and Miami Hurricanes among others.

He previously said “the end is near,” seemingly a reference to his recruitment winding down and Kentucky having all the momentum.

Whitney, who hails from Roselle (NJ), is ranked as the No. 18 player and the No. 5 small forward in the class of 2019 on 247 Sports Composite, which measures all of the recruiting rankings. He stands 6-6, 190 pounds and is ranked as high as No. 14 overall by 247 and ESPN.

Whitney’s visit to Lexington comes on the heels of DJ Jeffries decommitting from the Wildcats. Jeffries is the No. 10 small forward and No. 37 overall player in 2019. Perhaps he didn’t like seeing that another player at his position was possibly about to join Kentucky’s 2019 class.

That’s not even accounting for Dontaie Allen, who is expected to get an offer when he visits Wednesday and eventually pick the Wildcats.

While this week got off to a rough start with Jeffries decommitting, it can certainly end on a high note with Whitney and Allen both visiting in the coming days.

This past weekend, Whitney hit a buzzer beater to keep his Mac Irvin Fire squad undefeated, which you can see below along with more highlights from his performance in Las Vegas:
