Five-star basketball recruit James Wiseman is expected to meet with a UK assistant coach Saturday, the first day of the fall recruiting period, the Herald-Leader has learned.
Wiseman — a 6-foot-11 power forward from Nashville — is now playing for Memphis East and recently moved to No. 1 in the ESPN rankings for the 2019 class. He’s rated no lower than No. 4 in any of the other major website rankings for the junior class and is No. 2 overall in the 247Sports composite rankings.
UK assistant coach Joel Justus scouted Wiseman at a FIBA event in Argentina this summer, and Coach John Calipari watched him on the Nike circuit.
