Five-star guard Cason Wallace has finally scored his lucrative scholarship offer from the Kentucky Wildcats, per his AAU team.

Wallace, a 6-4 combo guard out of Texas, is currently seen as a Tennessee lean, with Texas and Baylor involved, but that was before Kentucky offered him.

But according to KSR’s Jack Pilgrim, a Kentucky offer would make the Wildcats serious contenders in Wallace’s recruitment.

Wallace has put up 15.6 points, 7 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game during the two-week evaluation period of the Nike EYBL circuit, with John Calipari and Jai Lucas in attendance for multiple games.

Due to his play this summer, and a Kentucky offer, Wallace could see a boost in the rankings in the very near future. He is currently the No. 1 combo guard in the Class of 2022.

With Wallace now holding from the Wildcats, Kentucky has zeroed in on their guard options for 2022. Skyy Clark has been committed to Kentucky since October 2020, Shaedon Sharpe is seen as the next likely Kentucky commit and could pop any week now, and Calipari and his staff may have just changed the game in Wallace’s recruitment with this offer.

With the Kentucky offer on deck, it’s now Wallace’s decision to make. A commitment to Tennessee was seen as highly likely earlier in the summer, but held out. With Kentucky now firmly in the mix for Wallace, can Calipari swoop in late and steal one from the Vols?

How does a guard trio of Skyy Clark, Shaedon Sharpe, and Cason Wallace sound?
