Standing out at Houston's Nike EYBL for the Alabama Challenge, Petty is currently ranked No. 31 by 247Sports and will move up after this weekend. Petty told 247Sports:

"'Kentucky is a great program that sends a lot of great athletes to the NBA," said Petty, 6-6 and out of Huntsville (Ala.) J.O. Johnson High School. "That is where I want to be one day.'"

Chris Fisher with 247Sports tweeted about Petty and other Kentucky targets who are at the event in Houston: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRub2-n0LVk
