One name to remember for future Kentucky basketball recruiting is 6-8 Jaemyn Brakefield of Huntington (W.Va.) Prep. He has 15 scholarship offers, including Alabama, Kansas, South Carolina and Mississippi.
He’s a consensus top 20 player in the 2020 recruiting class, but does not have a scholarship offer from Kentucky yet. However, Rivals.com recruiting writer Dan McDonald reported that Kentucky had an assistant coach watch him during an event in Atlanta this spring.
The five-star forward has also been at UK several times for unofficial visits.
Brakefield told McDonald that Kentucky tells him to “keep working and keep getting better.” He also told McDonald that it was “pretty nice” at UK.
