Wednesday Headlines: Jordan Burks Decision (UPDATE)

All signs point to him picking Kentucky...eventually.

Jordan Burks will not be announcing his decision today, but for the time being, is still expected to commit to Kentucky Basketball.

The Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball program is in a prime spot to add wing scoring for the upcoming season. Former Ole Miss commit Jordan Burks requested his release back in March with the intent to play for another program. After visiting with Kentucky over the weekend, Burks is expected to announce his decision to play for the Wildcats this fall.

The 3-star prospect isn’t necessarily rated high in comparison to his fellow classmates already at Kentucky, but don’t let that fool you. From December to February, Burks played in 10 games in the Overtime Elite league. In those 10 games, Burks averaged over 27 points, seven rebounds and three assists. He showcased his ability to score against talented individuals but also proved he can play on the defensive end.

Burks is long and lanky. With his 6-9 frame, he’ll fit right in with talented wings such as Justin Edwards and Aaron Bradshaw. Kentucky has lost so many players from last season’s roster that the opportunity for Burks to receive extended playing time grows each day.

If today goes as expected, Burks will announce his decision to be a Wildcat at noon ET and head coach John Calipari will feel much better about his team for the 2023-2024 season.
