A new frontcourt target is emerging for Kentucky in the 2022 class.

According to Rivals reporter David Sisk, the Kentucky coaching staff is looking into four-star center Felix Okpara.

Fellow Rivals reporter Travis Graf says Okpara has the highest ceiling in the 2022 class.

Okpara, who plays at Hamilton Heights Christian Academy (TN), is ranked 39th overall in the 2022 class by Rivals. 247 Sports has him ranked 108th overall. He’s regarded as one of the top shot-blockers in his class.

Among the other programs to offer the 6-11 Okpara include the Texas Longhorns, Florida Gators, Tennessee Volunteers, Ole Miss Rebels, Georgia Bulldogs, Mississippi State Bulldogs and Nebraska Cornhuskers among others.

Emoni Bates, Brandon Huntley-Hatfield and Skyy Clark are the only 2022 recruits with offers from Kentucky right now. Bates and Huntley-Hatfield are off the board, so it’s really only Clark at this point, so there’s no uncommitted 2022 frontcourt target with an offer from Kentucky right now.
