Although the Kentucky Wildcats’ main focus is on the 2022 class, now is a critical time to begin building the 2023 class.

And Kentucky is doing that with one of the top two-way players in the class.

Kentucky has been in regular contact with KJ Lewis, a top 20 prospect who is viewed as one of the best perimeter defenders in the class.

The El Paso (TX) native played well at the Pangos All-American camp. He later told KSR’s Jack Pilgrim he’s being heavily recruited by Kentucky and sees himself fitting in well in Lexington.

“A dog, a two-way player, can score off the ball or with the ball in my hands,” Lewis told KSR. “I just have that grit that would fit in with the Kentucky culture. I have to expand my game to get to the pro level, but he sees that potential in me. I think that’s a culture I could thrive in.”

Lewis is also considering Arizona, Texas, UTEP, TCU, and Kansas, among others.
