The Kentucky offer seems to be one that a lot of high-level prospects look forward to getting, and that remains true for 2023 five-star wing JJ Taylor.
Javonte “JJ” Taylor is one of the top prospects in the 2023 class, ranked No. 7 overall by the 247 Sports Composite rankings.
The 6-8 wing from Chicago is highly regarded and will probably see a Kentucky offer come his way soon.
Especially considering his connection with new Kentucky assistant Chin Coleman, per Kentucky Sports Radio.
Get ready to hear more and more of “this player holds an Illinois offer from when Ron ‘Chin’ Coleman was on the Fighting Illini staff” because it’s going to be relevant for the next couple of recruiting classes. Coleman has been on Taylor long before any other college coach. Taylor told KSR down at the Pangos Camp that Coleman was the very first college coach to reach out to him, all the way back when Taylor was in eighth grade–the first year he started playing basketball.
Taylor played with fellow UK target Dereck Lively at Pangos, averaging nearly 16 points per game on about 70 percent shooting.
Taylor is definitely a player to keep an eye on in the 2023 class.
