Kentucky offers 2018 shooting guard during surprise visit

On a whim, 2018 five-star wing Keldon Johnson decided to take an unofficial visit to Kentucky today, and apparently, that paid off in the form of a scholarship offer.

According to Evan Daniels, the 6-5 200 lbs. Johnson picked up an offer on his visit, making him the ninth player in the 2018 class John Calipari has offered. Johnson is considered the second best shooting guard and the twelfth overall player in the 2018 class by ESPN, and just transferred from Huntington Prep to Oak Hill Academy for his senior season. He had a big summer on the EYBL circuit, averaging 20.7 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 3.1 assists for Boo Williams.

Let’s watch him work:

Here’s a list of Kentucky’s 2018 offers so far, not including Jaedon LeDee, who cut Kentucky yesterday:

  • PG Immanuel Quickley
  • PG Darius Garland
  • PG Quentin Grimes
  • SG Romeo Langford
  • SG Keldon Johnson
  • SF RJ Barrett
  • SF Zion Williamson
  • SF Cameron Reddish
  • C Bol Bol

Is Canadian power forward Simi Shittu next?
