UK Coach John Calipari was in Nashville on Monday to see five-star point guard Kennedy Chandler go for most valuable player honors at the NXT LVL Hoops Fest showcase there.
Chandler — a junior point guard at Briarcrest Christian School in Memphis — landed a Kentucky scholarship offer on Christmas Day, and Calipari has seen him play several times over the past few months. He is currently the only point guard in the 2021 class with a UK offer.
Rivals.com ranks Chandler — a 6-foot-1 prospect — as the No. 11 overall player in the class of 2021, and he’s considered to be the No. 1 point guard in that group. Duke and North Carolina are among the other major programs that have already extended scholarship offers.
