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.
