Kentucky is still looking for its first frontcourt pledge in the 2021 class, and Bryce Hopkins could be the first to pop.

After Hopkins decommitted from Louisville last month, the Wildcats quickly jumped into the mix. and they’ve been viewed as the favorite ever since, so much that some believed he could commit very soon.

However, Hopkins had never visited Kentucky’s campus before, and recruits don’t typically commit to schools they’ve not visited.

Good news. Hopkins has apparently made his way to Lexington for a visit to Kentucky, according to Jake Weingarten.

Hopkins, who plays at Fenwick High School in Illinois, is currently ranked 32nd nationally by 247 Sports Composite and is listed as the No. 8 power forward in the 2021 class. ESPN and Rivals classify him as a small forward.

In addition to Kentucky, the 6-7, 220-pound forward also holds offers from Oregon, Kansas, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, and Iowa among others.

Now that Hopkins has visited Kentucky’s campus, it may only be a matter of time until he announces a decision day. He’s expected to commit in time to sign a national letter of intent during the fall signing period.

In the meantime, check out some highlights of Hopkins scoring 41 points last season, including a game-winner:
