Nick Smith Jr. confirmed to yesterday that Kentucky has indeed been added to his final list of programs despite an offer not being extended yet. His initial top 10 included North Carolina, Arkansas, Georgetown, Texas Tech, Kansas, Baylor, Oral Roberts, Auburn, Florida, and Ole Miss. The Wildcats have now been added to the esteemed list of programs vying for the Sylvian Hills combo-guard.

Smith Jr. told me that originally he had only heard from Wildcats' assistants but that changed. John Calipari has now reached out to Smith Jr, he told

"He was telling me he was excited that I added Kentucky to my list and was hearing great things about me and was looking forward to recruiting me."

This is a development that is important and should keep tabs on.
