A few recruiting notes for Thursday …

Kentucky coaches will be in North Carolina on Monday — the first day of the fall recruiting period — to see five-star forward Isaiah Todd, according to USA Today’s Jason Jordan. Todd is one of the Wildcats’ top remaining targets for the 2020 class and an important prospect as UK looks to add some frontcourt players to its group of commitments for next year.

Chandler has emerged as a five-star recruit in the 2021 class and has been on UK’s radar for a while.

Todd

Five-star basketball recruit Isaiah Todd received a scholarship offer from Kentucky during a meeting with head coach John Calipari on Wednesday night.

Todd — a 6-foot-10 prospect for Trinity Academy (N.C.) — is currently the No. 13 overall player in the 2020 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings, though he has acknowledged that he’s considering a move to the 2019 class. That would allow him to play college basketball next season, and possibly bolster UK’s frontcourt following the expected departures of Reid Travis and PJ Washington following this season.

247Sports national analyst Evan Daniels logged a prediction in Kentucky’s favor on Todd’s Crystal Ball page last week, and he talked to the Herald-Leader about that pick and Todd’s recruitment, including what kind of impact he could have for the Cats next season. You can read that story here.
