TyTy Washington reveals top 6

Kentucky is in a tight battle for the rising star.

Ball Is Life

TyTy Washington has taken the next step in his recruitment by announcing his top six schools.

And to no surprise, the Kentucky Wildcats made the cut.

Joining Kentucky are the Baylor Bears, Arizona Wildcats, Kansas Jayhawks, LSU Tigers and Oregon Ducks.

The 6-3, 185-pound Washington is ranked as the fourth-best point guard in the nation for 2021 and 33rd overall player per 247 Sports. Rivals has him ranked 32nd overall and sixth among point guards. He’s expected to rise to five-star status when the final recruiting rankings are released for both services.

The Arizona native had been committed to Creighton but decommitted from the Bluejays on March 11. He also holds offers from Illinois, Maryland, Oklahoma State, LSU, New Mexico, Ole Miss, San Diego State, USC, and Washington State among others.

Washington recently faced off against Kentucky signee Nolan Hickman at the Geico National Tournament in Florida. Washington went for 22 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, one block and two steals.

Here is Washington’s scouting report via Josh Gershon of 247 Sports, which labels the floor general as a Power-5 starter.

“Consistently productive point guard with good size and length. Solid frame with plenty of room to add strength. Has nice combination of scoring and creating for point guard position. Has ball skills and vision to consistently create for others while his jumper is playable to the perimeter. Finishes well at rim due to physical tools. Has ability to defend both guard positions at next level due to instincts and length. Projects as high major starter with professional upside if game continues to progress.”

Here are some highlights of Washington in action.
