Kentucky is still pursuing Josh Christopher hard, despite cutting ties with Jalen Green in wake of Terrence Clarke’s commitment on Saturday.
According to Jake Weingarten, Kentucky will have a visit with Christopher at some point.

The dreams of the “Pie in the Sky” trio of Christopher, Boston, and Green are no more, but if Kentucky can land Christopher to go along with Boston and Clarke, it might just be even better.
