UK assistant coach Orlando Antigua was in Louisville on Thursday night to check out Class of 2015 forward Ray Spalding, according to Scout.com’s Jody Demling.
Spalding played sparingly as a sophomore at Louisville Trinity but is having a breakout junior season for the No. 2 Shamrocks. The lanky, 6-foot-9 power forward scored 11 points in Trinity’s 65-21 rout of Central on Thursday.
UK coaches also evaluated Spalding over the summer, when he played for the Kentucky Travelers EYBL team. Louisville Coach Rick Pitino watched Spalding play earlier this week. He has early scholarship offers from Vanderbilt, Butler, Xavier, Clemson and Western Kentucky.
Spalding will be one of several top in-state prospects at the Joe B. Hall Classic at Montgomery County High School on Saturday.
