Five-star shooting guard R.J. Barrett announced Wednesday that he has narrowed his list to five schools, and Kentucky made the cut.
Barrett — a 6-foot-7 prospect from Ontario — is also considering Arizona, Duke, Michigan and Oregon. He said that he has not scheduled any official visits.
Last month, Barrett announced that he was reclassifying from 2019 to 2018, and he’s now ranked No. 1 nationally in that class by Rivals.com and Scout.com. He’s also the No. 1 prospect in the 247Sports composite rankings, slightly edging fellow UK target Zion Williamson.
