Traynor has been hearing more from Kentucky in recent months, so this visit is big news regarding Kentucky and Traynor’s interest in each other.
Traynor is ranked as the 80th overall prospect in the country and the No. 1 player in the state of Kentucky. The 6-9 big man has heard from other schools such as Louisville, Missouri, Cincinnati, Xavier, and DePaul.
Evan Daniels raved about Traynor earlier last week, stating that he is one of the more underrated players in the country.
Traynor is planning a fall decision, and he’ll visit Kentucky for Big Blue Madness. He currently holds offers from Cincinnati, Xavier, DePaul, NKU, WKU, and Evansville, so if Traynor were to land a Kentucky offer, one would think they would jump to the top of his list.
