Kentucky missed out Monday night on Luke Kennard, who announced his commitment to Duke for the class of 2015.
Still, the Cats should boast one of the most talented backcourts in the country when the 2015-16 season rolls around.
UK already has a commitment from Chicago star Charles Matthews, a versatile 6-foot-5 prospect who has the tools to be one of John Calipari’s top perimeter defenders as a freshman.
Three scholarship guards will likely be returning players on that 2015-16 roster. Dominique Hawkins will be a junior by then, and current signees Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker will be sophomores. Neither Ulis nor Booker is expected to be a “one-and-done” player.
