Kentucky is expected to get its third basketball commitment for the class of 2018 on Tuesday.
Four-star shooting guard Tyler Herro — a 6-foot-5 prospect from Milwaukee — is scheduled to announce his college decision at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, the day before the end of the early signing period.
Herro wrapped up his official visit to Lexington on Sunday, and UK is the only school that he will see before making his college announcement. Kansas, Oregon, Villanova and Butler have all been recruiting Herro since he decommitted from Wisconsin last month, but he hasn’t taken trips to any of those schools.
UK is the clear leader on Herro’s 247Sports Crystal Ball page. National analysts Evan Daniels, Jerry Meyer and Andrew Slater have all logged pro-UK predictions there. All four Rivals.com national recruiting experts predicted Herro to Kentucky last week, too.
Herro is the No. 36 overall prospect in the 2018 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He would join five-star point guard Immanuel Quickley and five-star wing Keldon Johnson as the third addition to John Calipari’s recruiting class for next year.
