Five-star recruit Jonathan Kuminga is expected to be in Lexington on Tuesday night for UK’s home game against Arkansas.
Kuminga — a 6-foot-8 small forward at Our Savior New American (N.Y.) — is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 3 overall player in the 2021 class. His expected visit to Kentucky was first reported by 247Sports national analyst Evan Daniels last week.
Originally from Congo, Kuminga averaged 16.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and made 13 of 26 three-point shots in five Peach Jam games over the summer, despite being among the youngest players in the competition. His list of scholarship offers already includes Auburn, Georgia, Maryland, Memphis, St. John’s and several others.
