It’s been a great couple of weeks for the Kentucky Wildcats, and it just got even better.
After picking up some big wins over Georgia and Auburn, it’s been reported by Zagsblog that Kahlil Whitney will sign his National Letter of Intent with Kentucky on May 3rd.
Whitney, who is ranked No. 8 overall by 247 Sports Composite, has been a hard Kentucky commit for quite some time now, but making it official is always a fun day for the player and his family/friends. It also helps quell any speculation that he’s not solid with Kentucky, even though he opted not to sign with the Cats in the early signing period.
Here are some of his comments on the decision date:
“I talked to my principal at the school and they gave me options [for dates],” Whitney said. “I’m 100 percent Kentucky. I’ll bring scoring the basketball, being great defensively and being very versatile and getting my teammates involved in the game.”
Whitney is an extremely talented forward that can score the ball in a multitude of ways. He’ll fit right in at Kentucky and should have a stacked team behind him, which he likes:
“I feel like playing with guys of my caliber is going to be better for me because I’m always going to make the right play. So making the right play to another five-star guy on the court with me is going to be beneficial for me.”
In a separate interview with Masslive.com, Whitney told reporters that Kentucky was his dream school, so picking the Cats was an easy call.
“Many people have asked me where I would go if I hadn’t already made my decision,” he said. “Truly, though, Kentucky has always been my dream school, so once I got an offer from them, I went with it.”
Congratulations to Kahlil on making this decision, and we wish him luck as he continues his senior season. He’s going to be fun to watch in a Kentucky uniform next year, but the real question is, who else from the 2019 recruiting class will join him?
