Brady Kennedy has been hired as the recruiting analyst for the Kentucky Wildcats, the school announced on Thursday.

“Recruiting will always serve as the lifeblood of our program,” Kentucky head coach John Calipari said in a press release. “I think our success in getting and developing kids over our time here speaks for itself, but as our game continues to change, we wanted to have someone who would oversee what we’re doing from an organizational standpoint. Ultimately we get who we are supposed to get and they come here because of the success we’ve had with our players on and off the court, but we are always looking for ways to improve the consistency of our message and managing how we are delivering it to potential future players.

“Brady has been with us for a while now in various roles and has always stood out for his hard work and versatility. When he came to me with some ideas of some ways we can do things more efficiently, I was all for it. I’m looking forward to seeing how he can grow this role to take our recruiting efforts to the next level.”

Kennedy, who has been a part of the men’s basketball program since 2012, will assist with the day-to-day recruiting operations of the program, which you can read more about here. His main duties will involve the communication and organization of connecting with prospective student-athletes, managing official and unofficial visits and supervising the staff that will be making the travel arrangements for recruits.

Kennedy will also help connect Kentucky basketball with potential future Wildcats via social media and mass mailings.

Kennedy joined the UK men’s basketball program in 2012 as a student manager. In 2016, Kennedy joined the staff full time as a men’s basketball video graduate assistant while he earned a master’s degree from UK in kinesiology and health promotions with an emphasis on sports leadership.

Kennedy also served as a basketball operations intern with the Charlotte Hornets during the summer of 2015.
