Kentucky fans should become familiar with the name Brandon Huntley-Hatfield, if they aren’t already.
Huntley-Hatfield is a power forward, ranked no. 4 nationally in the 2022 class by the 247 Sports Composite Rankings. The Clarksville, Tennessee native played last season with IMG Academy in Florida and recently held a virtual visit with Kentucky.
Kentucky has long been viewed as a prime contender for Huntley-Hatfield. The Kentucky staff got in contact with Huntley-Hatfield early on and he also has connections with former UK forward Alex Poythress.
Huntley-Hatfield’s mother recently did an interview with KSR’s Jack Pilgrim where she had some interesting comments about her son’s recruitment.
Brandon’s mother Antoinette talked quite a bit about her son possibly reclassifying to 2021 and said Kentucky has talked to him quite a bit about that, and also said her son will announce his decision on January 21, 2021, his sister’s birthday. When, or if, a reclassification announcement will come is still up in the air, though she said Kentucky has told Brandon he could be a key piece of their 2021 recruiting class.
Antoinette also dropped an interesting piece of information, noting that Brandon measured at 6’10” as opposed to the 6’8” that he has been frequently listed at, as well as measuring at 230 pounds, up notably from the 208 pounds that he’s been listed at.
From the sound of it, Kentucky seems to be in really good shape with Huntley-Hatfield moving forward. Landing him and reclassifying to 2021 could put Kentucky in position to bring in a monster haul in that class, with Huntley-Hatfield as one of the leaders.
