UK assistant coach Tony Barbee was back at the City of Palms Classic on Tuesday evening to check out James Wiseman, arguably the No. 1 overall recruit in the class of 2019.
Wiseman — a 6-foot-11 power forward from Memphis — is ranked No. 1 in the junior class by Scout.com and ESPN, and Kentucky is the early favorite in his recruitment. He struck down rumors earlier this month that he might reclassify to 2018 and play college basketball next season.
Barbee watched top 2019 prospects Bryan Antoine and Scottie Lewis at the Florida-based showcase Monday night.
