Kennedy Chandler, a five-star prospect out of the 2021 college basketball recruiting class, will be seen by several programs on Wednesday. Some of these teams were previously known, but not all were.
The Florida Gators, Auburn Tigers, Kentucky Wildcats, Missouri Tigers and Tennessee Volunteers will all go check in on the young man. Mike White and Bruce Pearl will go themselves to represent their programs. It’s worth nothing John Calipari has recently checked in on the young man himself, but is sending assistants this time around.
This news was relayed to the masses on the mean streets of social media by Stockrisers and Rivals grassroots guru Jake Weingarten.
Recruiting service outlets either Kennedy Chandler as a four or five-star recruit. Furthermore, those outlets tend to agree he’s one of the 25 (or so) best players in the entire 2021 recruiting class.
The above is worth noting, as many had previously claimed him to be a five-star without mentioning the discrepancy. Moreover, as time has gone by, 247Sports is maybe the highest on him, cementing him a a five-star and as one of the 17 best players in his class.
As noted previously when there’s been slight disagreement with a player’s star ratings, CBBToday prefers to take the lower grading (if there’s not a majority agreement) to avoid the idea of sensationalizing for clicks. If we sensationalize, it’s for hugs and high-fives.
At this point in time, however, we feel safe in calling Chandler a five-star.
Nevertheless, only time will tell if the Florida Gators, Auburn Tigers, Kentucky Wildcats, Missouri Tigers and Tennessee Volunteers can do enough to lure Kennedy Chandler to the program.
