You can add another recruit to the list of visitors for Big Blue Madness.

The latest addition is rising in-state prospect James Jewell, who will be taking an unofficial visit for this year’s even, according to his AAU team:

Jewell, who plays for Eastern High School in Louisville, does not currently have a recruiting profile on any of the major services. Part of that is Jewell being a Class of 2022 recruit, so he’s still far away from his first season of college basketball.

Prep Hoops lists Jewell as a 6-8 power forward who plays for Manimal Elite on the Adidas Gauntlet AAU circuit. Pure Prospects lists him as the No. 1 recruit in Kentucky for 2022, and he already has a 7-2 wingspan.

Here are some highlights of Jewell in action:
