Class of 2019 quarterback Connor Bazelak landed a scholarship offer from Georgia on Wednesday.

Bazelak — a 6-foot-4 prospect from Dayton, Ohio — is Kentucky’s top recruiting target at the position for the 2019 class and has already visited Lexington several times. He also has offers from Pittsburgh, Purdue, Missouri and North Carolina, among many others, and recently visited Tennessee.

247Sports ranks Bazelak as the No. 16 pro-style quarterback in the 2019 class. 247Sports national director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong logged a Crystal Ball prediction last month in favor of Kentucky.

Lecque

Jalen Lecque has received a UK basketball scholarship offer, according to national recruiting analyst Andrew Slater.

Lecque — a 6-foot-4 combo guard from New York, now playing for a high school in North Carolina — is the No. 9 overall prospect in the class of 2019, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He has talked about possibly moving to 2018 — his original class — but there’s been no final decision on that, and UK is already expected to have several talented backcourt players for next season.

If Lecque stays in the 2019 class, he’ll be among UK’s top targets at the position. He averaged 20.1 points, 9.3 assists and 9.1 rebounds per game this past season, and he’s now playing with the New York Rens — the former team of Hamidou Diallo — on the Nike circuit.

INDIANAPOLIS — A day after UK’s scholarship offer to Scottie Barnes became public, another talented basketball prospect in the class of 2020 has landed one.

N’Faly Dante is the second recruit from the current sophomore to class to get an offer from Kentucky, according to national recruiting analyst Andrew Slater.

Dante, like Barnes, plays on the Nike circuit. The 6-foot-11 center from Mali now plays for Sunrise Christian in Kansas and has been one of the most buzzed about prospects on the spring basketball circuit. He played for the victorious World Select Team at the Nike Hoop Summit earlier this month and is averaging 16.8 points and 9.0 rebounds through five games of Nike EYBL play.

Herro

Four-star shooting guard Tyler Herro received a scholarship offer from John Calipari during the UK coach’s visit to Milwaukee on Tuesday, according to Rivals.com national analyst Corey Evans.

Herro — a 6-foot-5 prospect in the 2018 class — backed off of a commitment to Wisconsin a couple of weeks ago, and UK was one of the first schools to show interest in his new recruitment. He’s also considering Kansas, Oregon, Villanova and Butler, and he’s not expected to make a college decision in time for next week’s early signing period.

Kentucky is also in the mix for five-star combo guard Quentin Grimes and five-star shooting guard Keldon Johnson, who are both expected to make early college decisions. The Cats are finalists for five-star shooting guard R.J. Barrett — the No. 1 player in the 2018 rankings — but UK is seen as a long shot in that recruitment.

Johnson

Five-star basketball recruit Keldon Johnson took an unofficial visit to Kentucky on Tuesday, and the Herald-Leader has been told that he picked up a scholarship offer from the Wildcats during the trip.

Johnson — a 6-foot-6 wing from South Hill, Va. — spent last season at nearby Huntington (W.Va.) Prep and took a couple of unofficial visits to UK during his time with that school. He transferred to Oak Hill for his final year of high school and is scheduled to be back in the state for the Marshall County Hoop Fest in early December.

247Sports ranks Johnson as the No. 11 overall recruit and No. 2 shooting guard in the 2018 class. Texas, Maryland and Kansas are among the schools that have extended scholarship offers and are thought to be at the top of Johnson’s list.
