INDIANAPOLIS — A day after UK’s scholarship offer to Scottie Barnes became public, another talented basketball prospect in the class of 2020 has landed one.
N’Faly Dante is the second recruit from the current sophomore to class to get an offer from Kentucky, according to national recruiting analyst Andrew Slater.
Dante, like Barnes, plays on the Nike circuit. The 6-foot-11 center from Mali now plays for Sunrise Christian in Kansas and has been one of the most buzzed about prospects on the spring basketball circuit. He played for the victorious World Select Team at the Nike Hoop Summit earlier this month and is averaging 16.8 points and 9.0 rebounds through five games of Nike EYBL play.
247Sports ranks him as the No. 6 overall player in the class of 2020. Kansas has also extended an early scholarship offer.
