Brandon Huntley-Hatfield is a top-five player in the class of 2022, the cousin of Alex Poythress, and a potential reclassification candidate. He is one of two players in the 2022 class to have an offer from Kentucky, alongside generational talent Emoni Bates, and the Kentucky coaching staff has a virtual meeting scheduled with Huntley-Hatfield today.

The meeting was first reported by Jake Weingarten from Stockrisers.com and confirmed by KSR’s Jack Pilgrim.

It is no surprise that Kentucky is going after the Florida native so aggressively. Huntley-Hatfield is the rare player that recently dropped down a class from 2021 to 2022, and many believe he could make the transition back to 2021 if he ended up in the right situation.

Huntley-Hatfield is ranked as the No. 4 overall player in the 2022 class, according to the 247 Sports Composite, and he comes in as the top player in Florida and No. 1 at the power forward position.

While it is still early in his recruitment, Kentucky has a lot of momentum, picking up predictions on both Rivals and 247 Sports. It is unclear whether or not the Poythress connection will make a difference, but it is clear that Calipari is heavily interested and is giving Huntley-Hatfield his full attention.

There is no timetable for a decision or even a final list, given his status as a 2022 recruit. But if he starts trending toward joining the 2021 class, expect some news to come out about his recruitment this fall.

When that happens, A Sea of Blue will have the most up to date information on his status and the predictions about his future.
