Kentucky Basketball offers Jeremy Roach

Kentucky has zeroed in on their next point guard.

The Kentucky Wildcats appear to have zeroed in on their point guard for the Class of 2020.

According to Samantha Pell of the Washington Post, Kentucky has offered a scholarship to Jeremy Roach. He is the first point guard to receive an offer in this class.

Roach, a five-star guard from Fairfax (VA), has been drawing more and more interest from Kentucky this summer and into the fall. He already has offers from the Villanova Wildcats, North Carolina Tar Heels, Duke Blue Devils and Texas Longhorns. He is listed as the No. 1 point guard in 2020 and the No. 11 player in the class via 247 Sports, where the crystal ball has two picks for Kentucky.

This summer, Roach said that the schools making him a priority for their 2020 class included Kentucky, Maryland, Villanova, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Texas and Duke. When it comes to Kentucky, he had this to say:

“They just said the same thing as pretty much everyone else, that they want to build a relationship with me and that I am a priority for them and hopefully I can be a Kentucky Wildcat,” Roach said about Kentucky this summer, according to Rivals’ Corey Evans. “They don’t have a real big sports team there, so the fans are crazy, and I have a lot of respect for that.”

Roach joins five-star wing Scottie Barnes, five-star center N’Faly Dante and five-star wing Jalen Johnson as 2020 players to earn Kentucky offers. John Calipari has offered Johnson and Roach just this week, as he’s working to lay the foundation for 2020 before the 2018-19 season even begins.
