It’s hard to believe we are one day away from Big Blue Madness, but here we are.
As the Kentucky Wildcats prepare to unofficially get the basketball season underway tomorrow, the coaches are working on setting up visits for Madness.
So far, Kentucky has quite the list of prospects making the trip to Lexington for Big Blue Madness.
Here’s who is known to be visiting right now, per KSR’s Jack Pilgrim.
Kentucky's Big Blue Madness visitor list is, well, significant...— Jack Pilgrim (@JackPilgrimKSR) October 11, 2022
- DJ Wagner ('23)
- Aaron Bradshaw ('23)
- Justin Edwards ('23)
- Reed Sheppard ('23)
- Ian Jackson ('24)
- Karter Knox ('24)
- Ace Bailey ('24)
- Travis Perry ('24)
- Jasper Johnson ('25)
A couple significant notes here. In the 2023 class, you obviously have the duo of DJ Wagner and Aaron Bradshaw, two top recruits that Kentucky is heavily involved in and arguably lead for. With that, you also have two ‘23 commitments in Justin Edwards and in-state star Reed Sheppard. That has to help with Wagner and Bradshaw.
You also get several of the top prospects in ‘24 including Jackson, who is in contention for the top spot in the class and Karter Knox, a top 10 (and possibly top 5) prospect who has a UK connection through his brother Kevin.
Ace Bailey is also a top level prospect that Kentucky has its sights set on and of course, in-state star Travis Perry who holds a UK offer is on that list.
There will also be some younger recruits who end up making the trip, but this is a strong list of visits, and hopefully Kentucky can close the deal with a couple of those 2023 guys making the trip.

Two great Cats.
Defense needs a big bounce back this weekend.
Goodwin is continuing to work toward seeing a larger role.
Maxey is expected to be part of a Big 3 with Embiid and Harden.
Cooper Rush has certainly made his mark.
It seems almost inevitable at this point.
