Five-star forward Matthew Hurt seemingly became the first UK basketball recruiting target to pose in official Wildcats gear during a visit to Lexington over the weekend.

Hurt — a 6-foot-9 forward from Minnesota and one of the top 10 prospects in the 2019 class — posted a photo to Instagram on Monday night of himself dribbling in the UK locker room while wearing a Wildcats uniform.

The practice of dressing recruits up in college gear for photo shoots has become a staple of official visits at many top basketball programs — as well as the Kentucky football program — though UK basketball hasn’t done it until now.

Hurt plans to take official visits to Duke, Kansas, North Carolina and one other school before making a college announcement, which likely won’t come until the spring.
