Unlike most prospects Big Blue Nation is talking about now a days, a high school recruit could be on the verge of committing to Kentucky.
According to CatsPause reporter Chris Fisher, four-star recruit TyTy Washington is hoping to make a decision by the end of the month.

Washington is a former Creighton commit, who decommitted on March 11th. Since then, his recruitment has blown up with some big-time offers including Baylor, Texas, Kansas, and UCLA. He’s since cut his list to a final six that features Baylor, Kansas, Arizona, Oregon, LSU, and Kentucky.
Here is the scouting report given by Josh Gershon of 247 Sports:
“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.”
Washington recently faced off against Kentucky signee Nolan Hickman at the Geico National Tournament in Florida. Washington in the game dropped 22 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, one block, and two steals.
In regards to his recruitment, Kentucky seems to be in a good spot coming into the final weeks before his commitment date. It has been noted that John Calipari has taken over as the primary recruitment, and whenever Coach Cal puts the full-court press on, other schools have a huge obstacle to overcome.
It should be noted though that Arizona seems to be making a late push to keep him in state and help Tommy Lloyd start off his first season with a bang.
