Five-star point guard Tyrese Maxey became the first recruit in the class of 2019 to officially sign with Kentucky on Wednesday, the first day of the national early signing period.
Maxey — a 6-foot-3 prospect from Texas — signed with the Cats during a special ceremony at his high school. He was also UK’s first commitment for the 2019 class, giving his pledge in early May. Maxey is the No. 10 overall player in the class of 2019, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
UK confirmed the signing Wednesday afternoon.
