TyTy Washington’s uncle is turning heads in recruiting circles.

Hoophall Classic

TyTy Washington’s uncle — yes, uncle — is turning heads in the college basketball recruiting world.

Tru Washington is the #87 ranked recruit in the class of 2023, and the 6’3 guard from Arizona is two years younger than his nephew, former Kentucky Wildcat TyTy Washington.

And Tru is starting to turn some heads in recruiting circles. Tru currently holds offers from Arizona State, Georgia. LSU, Texas Tech and TCU, among others, but is looking to gather some more offers this summer before his senior year.

He earned co-MVP honors at the 2022 Pangos All-American Camp Top 30 Cream of the Crop Game in Las Vegas this week, and earned Third-Team All-Event honors in Louisville last weekend.

There’s no indication that Kentucky has shown interest, but if he keeps adding to his game and putting on standout performances, there could be a chance Kentucky makes a call. The family connection is already there.

For more on Tru and TyTy’s relationship, check out this from KSR and this from Sports Illustrated.
