We’ve been hearing for the past few months that Kentucky is the most likely college destination for five-star point guard Tyrese Maxey.
The 247Sports Crystal Ball now reflects that prediction, following a huge swing of picks away from Southern Methodist and toward UK over the past few days. As of Thursday night, Kentucky is a major favorite on Maxey’s Crystal Ball page.
John Calipari will have an in-home visit with Maxey this weekend, the UK coach’s second trip to Texas in the past week to meet with the 17-year-old star. Maxey is the No. 2 point guard in the 2019 composite rankings behind only Ashton Hagans, who has already committed to UK and is expected to reclassify to 2018 this summer so he can play for the Wildcats next season.
