The No. 2 overall player in the class of 2022, Jalen Duren, has cut his list down to 11, and the Kentucky Wildcats make the cut.

Tipton Edits was the first to put it out yesterday afternoon. Duren is down to Kentucky, Michigan, Miami, Alabama, Auburn, UCLA, Penn State, Memphis, and two pro options - the NBL and the G-League.

Duren and Kentucky do have a close relationship, so I fully expect Kentucky to be in final contention to land the 6-10 center from Montverde. However, the two pro options on the table are not surprising, as Duren is currently projected to go the pro route in his crystal ball projections.

Duren is a must-get prospect for the college game, wherever he goes. He is a projected top-10 NBA Draft pick, and his scouting report has compared him to former Kentucky Wildcat Bam Adebayo.

Kentucky offered Duren back in October of last year. He recently gave a brief update on his recruitment that you can read here.
