Jarace Walker, a top-10 prospect out of IMG Academy, has finally heard from the Kentucky Wildcats, according to Cats Illustrated.

Walker is a class of 2022 recruit who holds a ton of offers, but more schools such as North Carolina and Kentucky have reached out and touched base with Walker. Currently Walker holds offers from Syracuse, Florida, Arkansas, Maryland, Kansas State, LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Notre Dame, Michigan, Virginia Tech, and Florida State.

While he has no 247 Crystal Ball or Rivals FutureCast predictions, Florida, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Georgetown, and LSU are viewed as the top contenders for the 6-6 forward. He’s ranked sixth overall by 247 Sports and 10th by Rivals.

There isn’t much more news on the Walker-Kentucky front, but he looks like a recruit worthy of an offer from John Calipari. Skyy Clark is the only other class of 2022 recruit that Kentucky has been in contact with.

Here’s a brief scouting report of Walker by 247 Sports recruiting analyst Brian Snow:

“A unique and versatile prospect. Is 6-foot-6 and around 225 pounds, and looks far more advanced physically than most players his age. Has an elite talent level. A physical and skilled wing, Has the ability to score the ball at a high-level going to the rim. One of the best things that he does is attack the rim off the dribble and make a good pass to a teammate. Even though he isn’t a point guard, Williams has good floor vision and a solid basketball IQ. Given his strength and physique, he also is a good rebounder and should be a strong defender in time.”
