The Cats miss on one of the top players in 2024.

John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats have had a ton of recruiting momentum recently, but unfortunately, that did not continue with one of the best players in 2024.

VJ Edgecombe has announced his commitment to the Baylor Bears. Edgecombe made the announcement during Sunday night’s Hoophall event.

Kentucky and Duke were among his three finalists.

Edgecombe is currently ranked as the No. 6 overall player and is the No. 2 shooting guard in the class.

At one point, it looked like the Cats might swoop in and get the 6-foot-5 guard, but ultimately, he decided to take his talents to Baylor.

While missing on Edgecombe is a tough blow for the Cats, they are still in on several top players in 2024, including Karter Knox, who is the No. 4 small forward in the class.

Let’s hope Coach Cal and his staff can rebound and finish off what’s already an outstanding 2024 class.
