The Kentucky Wildcats are heavily recruiting the 2022 class and now we have a new name to keep an eye on.
On Tuesday, Jack Pilgrim of Kentucky Sports Radio reported that Kentucky is in “consistent contact” with Sage Tolentino.
Tolentino is a 7-1 center out of Maryknoll High School in Honolulu, and Kentucky associate head coach Kenny Payne has been talking to him “daily.”
Another school that has expressed interest in Tolentino is also in the SEC and that is the Auburn Tigers.

Out of Maryknoll High School in Honolulu, Tolentino stands 7’1 at 16 years old.
UK associate head coach Kenny Payne talking to him “daily.” Auburn also very interested.
One of the big missing pieces for the Cats in recent history has been in the frontcourt. It seems like they are always missing a big man that could really turn them into a true title contender.
Tolentino will be a name to watch for going forward to see if he emerges as a real possibility for the Cats in 2022.
