According to multiple reports, the Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball program has reached out to Reed Sheppard.

As you may know, Reed is the son of former Kentucky Wildcats star and national champion Jeff Sheppard. Jeff played at Kentucky from 1993-1998 and helped hang two national championship banners in Rupp Arena (1996 & 1998).

While Jeff went undrafted, he was eventually signed by the Atlanta Hawks in 1998, played overseas for two years, and is now watching his son become a high-major prospect.

Reed, a combo guard in the 2023 class, currently stands 6-1 and weighs in at 170 pounds. He’s received offers from High Point, Iona, Iowa, South Alabama and Stetson.

Though the Wildcats have had their fair share of struggles this season, Kentucky stands well superior in terms of both historical and current reputation when compared to other programs interested.
