Kentucky will host two of the top juniors in the nation this weekend in JJ Taylor and Robert Dillingham.
Dillingham’s visit was first reported by Travis Branham of 247Sports earlier this week, with Travis Graf of Cats Illustrated reporting Taylor’s visit on Thursday. Branham later confirmed the report, as well.
Taylor, a consensus top-ten prospect in the class of 2023, is ranked No. 7 overall and No. 5 at the small forward position by On3. ESPN has him listed at No. 4 overall, followed by Rivals at No. 5 and 247Sports at No. 6.
The five-star wing earned an offer from Kentucky back on June 15, the first day schools were allowed to contact 2023 recruits directly. Taylor also holds offers from Duke, Florida, Gonzaga, Illinois, Kansas, LSU, Michigan, Nebraska, North Carolina and Texas, among others.
“They love big guards,” Taylor told KSR in June. “That’s really the top school for people like me to go to. That’s why I like it. They like working with people like me.”
Kentucky assistant Chin Coleman, known as one of the nation’s top recruiters of the Chicago area, is the lead recruiter for the Kenwood Academy (Chicago) standout.
