Four-star forward Cam’Ron Fletcher has been drawing attention from the top basketball programs in the country since 2017. After reducing his list in mid-July, Fletcher has come to a decision.
Fletcher has verbally committed to Kentucky. The move comes just over two weeks after he announced his top five. The list included Kentucky, Alabama, Michigan State, Missouri and North Carolina.
Speaking to 247Sports, Fletcher explained that the school suited his “style of play.” He stated that he hopes to win a national title with the Wildcats and get into the NBA.
“I picked Kentucky because it’s my style of play,” Fletcher said. “I feel like I’ll fit in well and I want to win a national championship and get to the league.”
247Sports rates Fletcher as the No. 36 overall prospect in the country. He is the No. 8 small-forward in the nation, and the No. 2 recruit from the state of Missouri.

Fletcher is now the second member of Kentucky’s Class of 2020. Five-star B.J. Boston committed last weekend.
The Wildcats are one of only a handful of schools to already have multiple recruits in the class. They’re also one of only three schools, along with Duke and North Carolina, to have a five-star commitment.
It’s early in the recruiting process, but it already looks like the NCAA blue bloods are going to dominate in 2020.
