Four of the country’s top coaches have been to Franklin, Ohio, in the past week to meet with one of UK’s top recruits.
Luke Kennard has been visited by Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, North Carolina’s Roy Williams, Michigan’s John Beilein and Ohio State’s Thad Matta in recent days, his father told the Herald-Leader on Tuesday.
Other schools that have offered Kennard a scholarship include UK, Michigan State, Indiana and Louisville.
Coaches were allowed to begin off-campus visits with recruits on Sept 9. Kennard was in Rupp Arena that night to see the UK Alumni Charity Game — his third visit to Lexington since receiving a scholarship offer in July.
Scout.com ranks Kennard — a 6-foot-5 shooting guard — as the No. 15 overall prospect in the Class of 2015.
Mark Kennard — the player’s father — said Krzyzewski, Williams, Beilein and Matta are the only coaches who have visited with his son since the start of the new recruiting period.
