One of the top point guard prospects in the class of 2014 announced Friday that he will play at Huntington Prep next season.
Josh Perkins, who has attracted recent interest from UK, will leave Regis Jesuit in Aurora, Colo., to play for Huntington Prep, which was one of the best teams in the country last season behind Kansas signee Andrew Wiggins.
Scout.com considers Perkins the No. 26 overall player and eighth-best point guard in the class of 2014. The 6-foot-3 guard has already officially visited New Mexico and is planning to see UCLA, Southern Cal and Gonzaga in the next couple of weeks. Perkins’ AAU team tweeted Friday that the trips to UCLA and USC visits will be unofficial visits.
UK has offered scholarships to two 2014 point guards — Tyus Jones and Emmanuel Mudiay — but have also expressed interest in Perkins.
Last month, five-star forward and Nashville native Jalen Lindsey announced that he will transfer to Huntington Prep for his senior season. UK is also recruiting Lindsey, though he does not have a scholarship offer from the Wildats.
One 2014 prospect who does have a UK offer — Minnesota shooting guard Rashad Vaughn — has also been mentioned as a possibility to join Huntington Prep next season.
