Class of 2020 point guard Sharife Cooper picked up a UK scholarship offer during his unofficial visit to Lexington on Friday night.
Cooper — a 6-foot prospect from Marietta, Ga. — already had scholarship offers from Florida, Tennessee, Auburn, Alabama, UCLA and several other top programs. 247Sports ranks him as the No. 19 overall player and No. 2 point guard in the 2020 class.
UK extended an offer to the No. 1-ranked point guard in the class, Jeremy Roach, earlier this week. The Cats are also actively recruiting RJ Hampton, a top 10 player and the No. 1 combo guard in the class. Hampton is expected to visit UK next month.
Cooper averaged 22.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 7.1 assists in 21 Nike league games over the spring and summer. He was the league leader in assists and finished in the top 10 in points per game.
