JT Thor ws someone UK showed a lot of interest in as a Class of 2021 recruit. However, it was unclear how interested UK was after Thor reclassified into 2020.

Turns out, UK is holding an in-home visit with Thor today, according to Corey Evans.

Thor, who now plays at Norcross High School in Georgia after transferring from Huntington Prep, is currently ranked 51st overall by Rivals, 37th by ESPN, and 47th by 247.

Monday was the first day of the live recruiting period, so UK didn’t waste much time in meeting with Thor, who still doesn’t have an offer from the Cats, but he did include them in his final five schools. Also making the cut was Oklahoma State, UCLA, Georgia and Kansas.

Both Rivals and 247’s crystal ball has the 6-8, 190-pound Thor at a 100% for Oklahoma State. There is no timetable for Thor’s decision, but if the Cats want to land this four-star recruit, they’re going to have to put in some major work over the next few weeks.

It’s safe to say Thor is still an option for UK’s 2020 class. What is unclear is where he ranks on UK’s big board compared to guys like Lance Ware, Isaiah Jackson, Isaiah Todd and Greg Brown, all of whom currently have offers.
