He’s yet to receive an official scholarship offer from Kentucky, but that didn’t stop 6-8, 210-pound Simi Shittu from including Kentucky on his list of 10 schools he’s considering for college.
The five-star Canadian forward, who plays at Saxtons River Vermont Academy, is a top 10 prospect in the 2018 recruiting class.
He listed Arizona, Arizona State, Connecticut, New Mexico, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Oregon, South Carolina and Vanderbilt along with Kentucky as schools he would consider. He has scholarship offers from all but Kentucky.
Calipari did go to watch Shittu play the last weekend of the July evaluation period and most recruiting analysts expect a scholarship offer from Kentucky to be coming.
