A trio of high school prospects with UK scholarship offers will play on national television this week.

On Wednesday, top point guard Tyus Jones and the Howard Pulley Panthers face Massachusetts-based BABC at the AAU Super Showcase in Orlando, Fla. That game will be shown at 7 p.m. on ESPNU.

On Thursday, UK targets Justise Winslow and Kelly Oubre will lead Houston Hoops against Nike EYBL champion Each 1 Teach 1 in another game from the Super Showcase. That contest will also be shown at 7 p.m. on ESPNU.

Winslow and Oubre — both class of 2014 forwards — received offers from John Calipari after last week’s Peach Jam. Jones is considered by some analysts to be the No. 1 point guard in the class of 2014.

Thursday night’s game will also feature four other highly touted players from the class of 2014 who have already committed to colleges. Each 1 Teach 1’s roster includes Louisville native D’Angelo Russell (Ohio State), Joel Berry (North Carolina) and Grayson Allen (Duke). UNC commitment Justin Jackson plays for Houston Hoops.

  1. is Calipari going

  2. Hi Dan —

    There are also some big events in Las Vegas this week that feature UK recruits, but it sounds like Calipari will hit both places over the next few days. I’m sure someone from UK will be in Florida at some point this week.

  3. Ben, do you think that by Cal offering 2 SF’s other than Johnson will affect his decision when it comes to choosing UK considering what he has said about realizing what it means to be the only SF offered by Cal and UK recently?

  4. Don’t think the new offers will have any effect on UK’s recruitment of Stanley Johnson. He knows he’s at the top of Calipari’s list and recently said the UK coach doesn’t even need to come to his games anymore because he’s aware he’s a big priority. I continue to like UK’s chances with him.
