Tennessee point guard Kennedy Chandler, a 2021 prospect, is on the rise. ESPN recently bumped the Briarcrest Christian star up to five-star status.
It comes as no surprise that Tennessee, which has become a force in the SEC, is after the Memphis native. Now, Duke is getting involved.
According to Mark Giannotto of The Commercial Appeal, both programs will be in to visit Chandler next week.
Duke and Tennessee are expected in next week to see Briarcrest 2021 PG Kennedy Chandler, according to his father. Kentucky expected to visit him later this month. Memphis offered Chandler at Peach Jam. ESPN elevated him to a 5 star last month.

After the rankings bump, ESPN had Chandler as the 18th ranked player, and No. 3 point guard in the 2021 class.
247 has him at No. 27 overall in both the site and composite rankings. He’s the No. 3 composite point guard.
He should have a pretty busy fall ahead. Per 247, he is set to make unofficial visits to Oklahoma, Kansas, and Louisville over the next two month. The Sooners and Jayhawks are both among his 24 reported scholarship offers, a list that also includes Tennessee. It does not appear that Duke or Louisville have offered at this time.
Arizona, Memphis, Michigan, and Syracuse are among the other college hoops powers to offer Kennedy Chandler as of now. He is just beginning his junior season, so there is a lot of time for his recruitment to continue to blow up.
