Report: Is a dream come true for me-wildcats complete the signing of top star

Ansley Almonor’s pledge helps Kentucky acquire another potent weapon.
After his official tour, Ansley Almonor, a forward for Fairleigh Dickinson, declared his commitment to Kentucky.
On Thursday morning, Ansley Almonor, a forward for Fairleigh Dickinson, made the decision to commit to the Wildcats, giving Kentucky an important addition to their squad.


Following his formal visit to Kentucky this week, Almonor made his pledge.
Almonor, a 6-foot-7 forward, finished the previous season with averages of 16.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game. Thirty-one games were begun by him. But his shooting ability is the strongest aspect of his offensive repertoire as a whole. He made 93 3-pointers in all last year, shooting 39.4 percent from three.

He tied the record for the most 3-pointers made in a single season at FDU with 93.

Throughout his three seasons at FDU, he has made 180 of his career three-pointers, shooting 38.5 percent overall. During his two years as a full-time starter, he has averaged 2.5 made 3-pointers per game and made 168 3-pointers in total.

More outside shooting was what Kentucky needed, especially from the forward position. Mark Pope received precisely that in Almonor.

In addition to being a versatile wing player, Almonor can also play the small-ball 4 position, which will present various matchup challenges for opposing teams.

Almonor joins Amari Williams, Brandon Garrison, and Andrew Carr, all of whom bring radically different skill sets, to solidify Kentucky’s front court.

He is still eligible for one more year.

Almonor is Mark Pope and Kentucky’s eighth commitment via the transfer portal.

There are currently two scholarships available for Kentucky, and Pope knows just how he wants to use them.
