UK assistant coach Joel Justus visited North Oldham basketball star Justin Powell on Wednesday morning, the Herald-Leader was told.
Powell — a 6-foot-5 guard from Louisville — had a breakout session on the Nike circuit last weekend and told the Herald-Leader there that UK — and Justus, in particular — has been in touch over the past several months. He mentioned Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia Tech and Xavier as the four schools recruiting him hardest going into the weekend.
After transferring to Montverde Academy (Fla.) last year, Powell is back in Kentucky and will be a senior at North Oldham this season. You can read the full story on his recruitment here.
