In addition to Thon and Matur Maker, the entire Arlington Country Day (Fla.) basketball team was at Rupp Arena for UK’s victory over Providence on Sunday.
Arlington Country Day played in the Joe B. and Denny Bluegrass Showcase in Lexington over the weekend. The team includes five-star forward Mario Kegler, who is ranked No. 25 overall in the class of 2016 by 247Sports. He is also a former high school teammate of UK recruit Malik Newman.
Kegler told the Herald-Leader that his AAU coach has heard from Kentucky, but he has not personally been in contact with the UK coaches. He said he was hoping to get some more recruiting interest from the Wildcats.
UConn, UCLA, Arizona, Oklahoma State, Ohio State and Tennessee are among the many schools that have already offered scholarships.
Kegler and Arlington Country Day will play in Louisville on Monday night and then head to the Marshall County Hoop Fest for games on Friday and Saturday.
