John Calipari is on a roll in recruiting right now. Four-star forward, Bryce Hopkins, has committed to Kentucky. He chose the Wildcats over offers from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and many others. Hopkins is a member of the 2021 recruiting class.
Bryce Hopkins is a 6’7 forward from Oak Park, Illinois. He is a versatile athlete who is a tremendous scorer. He can play at both the three or four positions. Hopkins had originally committed to Louisville on November 10, 2019. With Louisville potentially getting hit hard by the NCAA, he decided it would be best to reopen his recruitment.
He told me that Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa State, Providence, and Oregon were the schools prioritizing him the most. Many believed if Kentucky offered him, He would be a Wildcat. Kentucky and Illinois were the two schools getting most of the buzz. Some believed Illinois would be the choice. But days before his commitment, Kentucky was receiving the buzz. He committed to Kentucky.
What is next for the Wildcats?
Hopkins is the second commitment for Kentucky’s 2021 recruiting class. He will join four-star point guard Nolan Hickman. This is just the start of which could be another REALLY solid recruiting class for John Calipari. I expect at least two more commitments before it is all said and done. A grad transfer is a possibility as well. It is shaping up to be a solid class for John Calipari so far.
