Jarred Vanderbilt has so many Division I scholarship offers that his father, Robert, says he is not even sure what the total is.

“There is a whole bunch of them from A to Z. They’ve all made offers. I would say the number is unlimited,” Robert Vanderbilt said.

The 6-9 forward from Houston is one of the top players in the 2017 recruiting class. He made an unofficial visit to UK in December and played four times in the Bluegrass last year.

His father says they will be back to play again at the Marshall County Hoop Fest and the McCracken County Mustang Madness.

“If they have one in Lexington, we might still be there, too. We are working on it right now,” Robert Vanderbilt said.

Vanderbilt’s father said his son hoped to narrow down his potential college choices by the end of summer.

“Then we hopefully will take official visits in the fall and see what happens,” Robert Vanderbilt said.
