Mark Pope is working hard in the transfer portal to build his debut roster at Kentucky for the upcoming 2024-25 season, but he’s also keeping an eye on what’s happening in the high school ranks.

A prospect to watch moving forward is class of 2025 small forward Nate Ament, who talked with On3’s Jamie Shaw earlier this month to break down his recruitment. A 6-foot-9 native of Virginia ranked No. 15 overall by the On3 Industry Ranking, Ament discussed several teams with Shaw, one of which was the Kentucky Wildcats.

While Pope has only been on the job for less than two weeks, he’s already reached out to Ament.

“They recruited me a little bit when they were at BYU,” Ament told Shaw. “Now they’re at Kentucky they are trying to get to know me and they are trying to get on as many calls with me as possible. We are in the process of building that relationship. I’m not going to lie, I haven’t watched too much BYU. But they like my versatility, that I can shoot and pass, and my length. I know I can adapt to almost any system and fit in perfectly.”

At this time, Ament does not have any official visits scheduled. That being said, he holds scholarship offers from the likes of Duke, Indiana, Michigan LSU, Louisville, Virginia, Creighton, and many more. He’s taken unofficial trips to Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Duke.
