Positive update on Kahlil Whitney following UK visit

Kentucky continues to be in great shape with this big-time wing.

Kahlil Whitney has wrapped up his official visit to Kentucky, and by all accounts, it went great.

While it may have not been enough for Whitney to announce a commitment this soon, it does appear his decision isn’t far off.

According to Adam Zagoria, Whitney is planning to decide in the coming weeks, and he may not even take another recruiting visit.

“Right now I’m just going through the process,” Whitney said Sunday. “I’ll be making my decision in a couple weeks. I don’t know when.”

If Whitney doesn’t visit any more schools, it will almost certainly be Kentucky if he decides in the next week or two. The Wildcats have all the momentum in this recruitment, and it won’t be a surprise if Whitney decides sometime this week.

Whitney, a 6-7, 200-pound wing from Roselle (NJ), is ranked as the No. 18 player and the No. 5 small forward in the class of 2019 on 247 Sports Composite, which measures all of the recruiting rankings.

Currently, Whitney holds scholarship offers from the Kansas Jayhawks, Louisville Cardinals, Florida Gators, LSU Tigers, Oregon Ducks, Virginia Cavaliers and Syracuse Orange among many others, while schools like the Duke Blue Devils have been showing more interest.

Though Whitney is ranked in the 15-25 range of the recruiting rankings, he definitely looks like a kid that’s going to finish a lot higher in the final rankings after having a huge summer. Some analysts think he could finish in the top 5-10 range in 2019.

If Whitney does pick Kentucky, he’ll join four-star wing Dontaie Allen and five-star guard Tyrese Maxey, giving John Calipari three pledges before the calendar even hits September.

This is already shaping up to be a bigger class, though Whitney has the potential to finish as Kentucky’s highest-ranked recruit in 2019.
