Kentucky has a new point guard target in the Class of 2021.

On Wednesday, Kennedy Chandler announced a Christmas present in the form of a scholarship offer from the Wildcats.

Chandler, a 6’1 point guard from Memphis, is ranked 15th nationally by the 247 Sports Composite Rankings and is currently ranked as the second-best point guard in the class. He’s garnered a lot of interest as of late, making headlines in the early portion of the high school season.

Corey Evans, from Rivals.com, said that Kennedy is “one of the best playmakers in the America.”

Other schools pursuing Chandler include Duke, UNC, Memphis, Tennessee, Florida State, Michigan, and Ole Miss.
