A big recruiting weekend gets bigger for the Kentucky Wildcats. Following the news that five-star Robert Dillingham will be visiting Lexington this weekend, Travis Branham of 247 Sports is reporting that five-star JJ Taylor out of Chicago is also planning to visit Kentucky, along with Dillingham.
2023 five-star SF JJ Taylor will take an official visit to Kentucky this weekend, source tells @247Sports.— Travis Branham (@TravisBranham_) October 22, 2021
Will be on campus with top ten prospect Robert Dillingham.
Taylor is a 6-8 small forward out of Kenwood Academy, and is being recruited by Chin Coleman, who cleans up the Chicago area in recruiting. Taylor is seen as a consensus top-five prospect by both Rivals and 247 Sports.
Although he has no crystal ball predictions on 247 Sports, Taylor does have one FutureCast prediction on Rivals from recruiting guru, Travis Graf, for Kentucky.
Taylor officially visited home-state Illinois on Oct. 9, and Kentucky will be his second official visit. Currently, it’s seen as a Kentucky vs Illinois battle, which is becoming more and more common, especially with Kentucky taking one of the lead recruiters for the Chicago area from the Illini.
