Kentucky High School Basketball Recruiting Roundup 9/16

It has been a very busy day of recruiting for several Kentucky kids today.

Kentucky is loaded with D1 talent and today is just an example of some of the top players and the attention they are receiving.

  • Knott County Central's Camron Justice got a phone call from Vanderbilt's Kevin Stallings today and it sounds like an offer could be coming soon. In a text from the 2015 shooting guard this evening, Justice told me that he hasn't received an offer yet, but there would be one on the table soon. Camron also texted, "He told me there would be one very soon, 100% guaranteed."
  • Holmes head basketball coach Jason Booher tweeted that 2015 point guard James "Beetle"Bolden had Clemson associate head coach Mike Winiecki and WVU head coach Bob Huggins in attendance today for a workout.
  • The Louisville Magic twitter account (@Lville_Magic) tweeted that Harvard will watch 2014 Cordia point guard Christen Cunningham and Ohio State will watch the Lions' Malik Hines in Lotts Creek tomorrow.
  • Marshall County's Austin Rentfro tweeted earlier today that he received his first college offer from Bellarmine.
  • @NextUpRecruits reported earlier today that Taylor County 2016 point guard Quentin Goodin recently received interest from Tulsa.

Lafayette's Jackson Davis Top Performer of John Lucas 40/40 Camp

 Lafayette High School's Jackson Davis made a push this weekend to being ranked nationally as he had a big time performance at John Lucas 40/40 Camp in Houston, Texas.

Here are a couple of tweets from the weekend on the lone Kentucky invitee's performance:

It sounds like the 2014 power forward continued to rise today:
Jackson Davis has already received offers from Virginia Commonwealth, Texas Tech, Morehead State, Western Kentucky, Indiana State, Tennessee Tech, Kent State, Chattanooga, Columbia, Princeton, Princeton, Wright State, Houston and Cleveland State.

 The 6'8" power forward also received an offer from Pennsylvania over the weekend and they plan on an in-home visit in 2 weeks. Jackson also unofficially visited Houston over the weekend and Davis' father Jonathan said his son had a great visit.

It looks like there could be a lot more offers coming this season and my guess most of those could be high major if Davis continues to show the motor it sounds like he displayed over the weekend at the 40/40 camp.
