Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Recruiting: Update on Brown, Zimmerman, and Matthews

Scout.com released their updated class of 2015 rankings yesterday, and a Kentucky recruit takes over the number 1 spot. Jaylen Brown had a summer to remember for him, and now he is finally getting the credit he deserves. Brown dominated every event he went to, and hasn’t slowed down yet. Many fans around the world got their first glimpse of Brown about 3 weeks ago on ESPNU as he took on Thon Maker. Brown had a double-double, and dominated the game in every aspect.

Brown is down to UCLA, Kentucky, Kansas, and Georgia many believe, but some reports are saying that the shoe company Adidas could sway him to UCLA. Kentucky has been on him from day one, and many believe he just needs to come visit and that could change everything in his recruitment. He is scheduled to visit Kentucky October 17th for their Big Blue Madness.

Kentucky is heavily involved for a lot of top 10 guys, and I would assume a lot of them wait till the late signing period to see who all comes back for Kentucky after this season.

Another top 10 guy from Las Vegas Stephen Zimmerman announced his in home visits, and John Calipari will visit him next month. I still think Arizona leads for Zimmerman, but I have heard a lot of Kentucky and UNC talk over the last few weeks. If Arizona can get Zimmerman they could have a Kentucky type class from years past.

Charles Matthews who is Kentucky’s loan commit for the class of 2015 came in at number 61 in the class, and I think thats the lowest for any Cal commit since he’s been at Kentucky. It also doesn’t help that the guy who runs scout.com is a huge Louisville fan, but you didn’t hear that from me.
