The Kentucky Wildcats have a major visitor on campus today.

According to 247 Sports reporter Travis Branham, Reed Sheppard is taking an unofficial visit to Kentucky right now.

Sheppard, who scored a scholarship offer from John Calipari in July, is ranked 34th nationally in the 2023 class by 247 Sports Composite. His highest ranking is 21st overall at Rivals, where he’s also a 5-star recruit. On3 also has him ranked 21st overall but as a 4-star recruit.

The son of former Wildcats Jeff Sheppard and Stacy Reed has been viewed as a Kentucky lean ever since he got the offer with the Virginia Cavaliers being the biggest competition. Now that Sheppard is on Kentucky’s campus, perhaps it won’t be long until he’s a Wildcat. He currently has no timeline for making his college choice.

Calipari and his revamped staff have been doing big things in the 2022 class, but they have yet to land a 2023 recruit. Sheppard is one of just six 2023 recruits to have a scholarship offer from Kentucky.
