The recruiting class for the University of Kentucky in 2023 is anticipated to be the best in the nation. Chin Coleman, an assistant coach for the Kentucky state men’s basketball team, met with journalists on January 6, 2023 to talk about the upcoming 2023 team recruits.
The Kentucky men’s basketball team had a big opportunity on Saturday night as Wildcats sought to secure a crucial home victory over No. 9 Kansas.
But in the opening minutes of the game, the houseful at Rupp Arena has given a glimpse of UK basketball future.
During the first media intermission of the game, point guard Robert Dillingham and combo guard Reed Sheppard, two Kentucky basketball signees in the 2023 class, were introduced to the fans.
The top-ranked recruiting class for Kentucky in 2023 includes Dillingham, Sheppard, guard DJ Wagner, centre Aaron Bradshaw, and small forward Justin Edwards.
Robert Dillingham, now player for the Kentucky men’s 2023 basketball team and one of five recruits of this year, watches the Kentucky-Kansas basketball game on January 28, 2023, in Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky.
Atlanta-based Overtime Elite, a professional high school basketball league, is where Dillingham is spending his season of high school. To maintain his eligibility for college, Dillingham is giving up a handsome wage.
Sheppard; blood of two basketball pre-eminents from the Commonwealth of Kentucky, was a star at North Laurel High School for a long time-Stacey Reed Sheppard and Jeff Sheppard.
John Calipari, the head coach of Kentucky, mentioned Dillingham and Sheppard on the postgame radio programme after the game, which Kansas won by nine points.
Calipari added, “Those two can’t wait to get here to play.”
Tre Johnson, the top recruit in the class of 2024, joined Dillingham and Sheppard at UK for the game on Saturday night. The class of 2024 has not yet received any commitments from Kentucky.
