Isaiah Todd has been a name on the high school circuit that most Kentucky fans should be familiar with.

The Kentucky Wildcats have been all-in on Todd for a while now and that seems like it’s not going to end until Todd is a Wildcat.

In an interview with 247 Sports, Todd said that Kentucky was one of three schools who have been recruiting him the hardest, along with the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Maryland Terrapins.

Todd also said he plans to visit Kentucky for one his five officials and he’ll also be visiting Kansas later on in the fall. Todd has already taken two officials to both Oklahoma State and Maryland.

Todd also had some glowing things to say about the Wildcats’ program, along with Coach Cal:

“The guys that come from Kentucky, the history of the school, the style of play, the coach himself, he’s really real,” said Todd. “That’s what everyone says about him and I really got to witness that just talking to him.”

It certainly helps that Kentucky has a former Cat who’s recruiting Todd to Lexington. In an interview with KSR, Todd revealed that Keldon Johnson is pushing him rock that Kentucky blue.

“Keldon Johnson, he’s from Virginia, and I lived in Virginia for a little while,” he said. “I know him through (my old AAU program) Team Loaded. That’s just the main one I talk to. He says Kentucky is a great program. He says that the biggest thing he learned there was about trusting the process and being a factor in helping the team win.”

While Todd has already officially visited two schools with plans of visiting two more, that would leave just one school for him to visit, but Todd has not cut his list from his previously released top 10 earlier in the spring, which included the four schools mentioned above, along with North Carolina, Oregon, Memphis, UCLA, UCF, and Vanderbilt.

Kentucky currently leads with 50% of the 247 Sports crystal ball predictions and 100% of the Rivals predictions.
