Announcement: Kentucky announce the signing of 5 star guard

Kentucky is not anticipated to make a’strong effort’ for 4-star reclass guard Jeremiah Fears, who recently decommitted from Illinois. Kentucky initially reached out to him.
The Kentucky basketball team has an open scholarship for the next 2024-25 season, but has been hesitant to use it unless the circumstances are perfect.

When it was expected that Mark Pope would keep his scholarship, the staff sought out to a promising four-star guard who was considering reclassifying for the 2024 class. The Cats were one of the first programs to contact Illinois’ de-commit, Jeremiah Fears.

Fears, who revealed he was reopening his recruitment a few weeks ago, had colleges such as Kentucky, Southern California, Arizona State, and Oklahoma approach out. So, is Kentucky an actual option?

According to reporter and insider Joe Tipton, Kentucky is unlikely to pursue the four-star, top-35 prospect guard.

Kentucky now features a handful of guards, both young and old. And Fears is sure to expect a position right away, which Mark Pope cannot guarantee.
In addition to Jaxson Robinson, the Wildcats boast upperclassmen Kerr Kriisa and Lamont Butler. Then, Travis Perry and Collin Chandler joined the 2024 recruiting class as two players expected to play significant roles in the following years.

Fears was a member of the U18 USA Basketball team that won gold at the FIBA AmeriCup earlier this month. He averaged 6.5 points and 3.0 assists per game. Pope attended several of the games.

So, it looks Kentucky, which began summer workouts a few weeks ago, will continue with its existing lineup unless something extraordinary happens in the coming weeks.
