Bryce Hopkins’ father updates recruitment, decision timeline

Kentucky is hot on the former Louisville commit’s trail. 


Less than a week after decommitting from the Louisville Cardinals, four-star forward Bryce Hopkins has already met with the arch-rival Kentucky Wildcats.

In an interview with Jack Pilgrim of Kentucky Sports Radio, Hopkins’ father, Clyde Hopkins, discussed his son’s virtual meeting with the Wildcats that took place Tuesday and noted that his son would likely make a decision within a month and a half.

“Me personally, I think Bryce will probably take it all in and make a decision in about a month or a month and a half,” Clyde said.

While he noted that UK did not make an offer to his son, Hopkins’ father did say the meeting went well.

“Bryce was really in tune with Coach [Cal] and his staff. He was impressed with the facilities and how they do things over at Kentucky.”

Calipari was joined on the call by assistants Tony Barbee and Joel Justus, but new assistant Bruiser Flint was not involved.

Hopkins’ father noted Kentucky joined a list a schools such as Providence, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, Marquette, Virginia and Arizona that have reached out to his son since he has decommitted from Louisville.

The 6-foot-7 power forward is a native of Oak Park, Illinois and is rated as the 8th best power forward in the class of 2021 by 247 Sports.
