Rivals.com national analyst Eric Bossi has logged a Future Cast prediction in favor of Kentucky for four-star power forward Lance Ware, who picked up a scholarship offer from the Wildcats over the weekend.
UK emerged as an immediate favorite for Ware — a 6-foot-9 prospect from Camden, N.J. — following the news of Kentucky’s offer. National recruiting experts Andrew Slater and Jerry Meyer were among the analysts who logged picks in favor of the Cats on Ware’s 247Sports Crystal Ball page this past weekend.
Rivals.com ranks Ware as the No. 52 overall recruit in the 2020 class, but he has shown improvements in his game over the course of the spring and summer and could be due for a bump in the rankings at the next update.
Ware plays for the same New Jersey high school that produced Dajuan Wagner, who was John Calipari’s first major recruit as head coach at Memphis.
