Immediately after Kentucky extended a scholarship offer to four-star forward Lance Ware late Friday night, the Wildcats emerged as the popular pick on his 247Sports Crystal Ball page.

Several predictions in the Wildcats’ favor were logged on Ware’s page in the hours following the news of UK’s offer, with national recruiting expert Andrew Slater adding a pro-UK pick late Friday night and 247Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer doing the same Saturday morning.

Ware — a 6-foot-9 power forward from New Jersey — has been on UK’s recruiting radar since last year and enjoyed a strong spring and summer on the Nike circuit. 247Sports now ranks him as the No. 41 overall prospect in the 2020 class, and Louisville, Michigan, Oregon, Georgetown and Miami are among the programs that have come through with scholarship offers over the past couple of weeks.

UK hosted Ware for an unofficial visit on Big Blue Madness weekend last October, and it looks like the Cats are in tremendous shape as the summer recruiting season wraps up.
