Kennedy Chandler, a five-star prospect out of the 2021 college basketball recruiting class, will be seen by Missouri Tigers staff on Tuesday.
This news was relayed to the masses on the mean streets of social media by Stockrisers and Rivals grassroots guru Jake Weingarten.
Big time prospects being checked in on by big time programs isn’t exactly new, especially not for this specific young man.
Recently, the Florida Gators, Auburn Tigers, Kentucky Wildcats, and Tennessee Volunteers all checked in on the young man. Mike White and Bruce Pearl went themselves to represent their programs. It’s worth nothing John Calipari has recently checked in on the young man himself, but sent assistants this time around.
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. Some have him even higher, nearing the top 10 mark.
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; though Weingarten’s Rivals has him at about 12 (at the time of this writing).
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 Kennedy Chandler a five-star.
Nevertheless, only time will tell if the Louisville Cardinals, Florida Gators, Auburn Tigers, Kentucky Wildcats, Missouri Tigers and Tennessee Volunteers can do enough to lure Kennedy Chandler to the program.
