As previously planned, top-10 national recruit Brandon Huntley-Hatfield was in the Rupp Arena crowd for Saturday’s rivalry game between Kentucky and Louisville, sitting directly behind the UK bench.
Huntley-Hatfield — a 6-foot-9, 224-pound power forward from Clarksville, Tenn. — currently plays for IMG Academy in Florida and is seen as one of the most promising frontcourt prospects in the country. He was the only major recruit to visit Lexington for Saturday’s game.
247Sports ranks him as the No. 6 overall player in the class of 2022, though he is a prime candidate for reclassification, and the Herald-Leader has been told that the college coaches recruiting him are expecting him to ultimately end up in the 2021 class.
