The Kentucky Wildcats were in to see 2021 five-star power forward JT Thor. This news was relayed on Twitter by CBB Today writer and Stockrisers reporter Jake Weingarten.
While the 2021 recruiting class is still a few years away, a few reputable recruiting services have already begun to track the players in it. According to those nifty websites, not only is JT Thor a five-star caliber player, but one of the 10 (or so) best players in the entire class.
As we forever note with recruiting classes this far removed from taking full shape, plenty of things can change between now and the time the players within those classes are closer to hitting collegiate campuses.
Nevertheless, it’s not exactly shocking to see the Kentucky Wildcats targeting a projected five-star caliber player. After all, that’s pretty much what John Calipari does. He hits the recruiting trail with the fury of 100 suns, finds guys he wants, and often lands them.
Only time, and likely plenty of it, will tell where Thor ends up playing his college hoops.
