The college basketball recruiting restrictions were officially lifted at midnight, allowing coaches to start contacting players from the 2022 class.

Before midnight, coaches were only allowed to contact the parents of the players in the class but were not legally allowed to contact the players directly.

Kentucky Sports Radio has reported that Kentucky has already made contact with 2022 point guard Jaden Bradley according to his father, Nate Bradley.

Bradley is currently ranked as the No. 9 overall player in the class according to the 247 Sports Composite Ranking. He is also the No. 2 overall point guard behind only Dior Johnson, who is committed to Syracuse.

Kentucky is one of 10 schools that have contacted Bradley since midnight joining North Carolina, Kansas, Louisville, Maryland, Florida State, Arkansas, Auburn, Pittsburgh, and Alabama.

Florida, Kansas, Louisville, Michigan, and North Carolina, and others have already offered Bradley a scholarship, but Kentucky has yet to officially offer although they are expected to this Summer.

On Friday, Bradley announced that he will be transferring to IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL teaming up with Brandon Huntley-Hatfield, Moussa Diabate, and Jarace Walker. Kentucky is considered a heavy favorite to land Huntley-Hatfield as of now.

Bradley took an unofficial visit to Lexington for Big Blue Madness this past season and he told KSR it was “unbelievable.”

“Oh, man. It’s a great feeling,” Bradley said. “Family atmosphere. It was unbelievable, even the Blue and White scrimmage felt like a real game. No one was going through the motions, they were competing and going at guys, trying to get each other better and get ready for the season. I like what Coach Cal does with his guys in trying to get them ready for the next level.”

Also in the 2022 class, Travis Graf of Cats Illustrated reported that Kentucky reached out to the father of combo guard Skyy Clark at 5 A.M and they are expected to contact Clark himself soon.

Clark is currently ranked as the No. 18 overall player in the class but is the No. 1 combo guard. Kentucky is currently viewed as the favorite to land Clark and hold a Crystal Ball prediction from Chris Fisher.
