Five-star forward Isaiah Todd is an elite prospect that has been garnering attention from just about every NCAA blue blood. But as the recruiting process has gone on for him, a handful of programs have stood out from the crowd – including Kentucky.
Speaking to 247Sports, Todd revealed that Kentucky is one of several programs that have been “prioritizing” him. The others were Maryland and Oklahoma State – both of whom he’s already made an official visit to.
“Kentucky, Maryland, and Oklahoma State the most… I hear from Kentucky a lot, Oklahoma State a lot, Maryland obviously because I’m from Baltimore, they reach out a lot as well.”
247Sports currently rates Todd as the No. 14 overall prospect in the class of 2020. He is the No. 2 power forward in the nation and the No. 1 prospect from the state of Virginia.
Todd added in the interview that he is working on scheduling a visit to Kentucky and has plans to visit Big 12 titan Kansas in the fall.
“I’m going to schedule something for Kentucky, but I’ll be going to Kansas in the fall,” Todd said.
The early predictions bode pretty well for the Wildcats as 247Sports’ crystal ball predictions give them a 50-percent chance of landing him.
Back in April, Kentucky was one of ten schools Todd identified as his leaders. The others were the aforementioned Kansas, Maryland, and Oklahoma State along with Memphis, North Carolina, Oregon, UCF, UCLA and Vanderbilt.
The Wildcats are still seeking their first commitment in the class of 2020.
