Several of UK’s top basketball recruiting targets are in Los Angeles this week for the Nike Skills Academy, an event loaded with talent from the 2019 and 2020 classes.
National recruiting analyst Andrew Slater tweeted a copy of the measurements from the Academy on Thursday, and it includes some impressive numbers.
UK’s newest commitment — Chicago wing Kahlil Whitney — has often been listed at 6-6, but he measured at 6-7.5 with a 6-10.5 wingspan, big numbers for a perimeter player. UK point guard commitment Tyrese Maxey is also at the Nike Skills Academy and measured at 6.2-5 with a 6.5.5 wingspan.
