Kentucky picks up “NBA talent” in four-star forward Bryce Hopkins

Kentucky basketball’s 2021 recruiting class grew to two members Monday evening when four-star forward Bryce Hopkins announced his commitment to UK, choosing the Wildcats over offers from Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Providence and Wisconsin, among others.

Hopkins, a 6-foot-7, 220-pound forward out of Oak Park, IL, is considered the No. 30 overall prospect in the 2021 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Known as a versatile, skilled forward with a pure knack for scoring, the newest Wildcat commit was a Chicago Sun-Times All-Area selection as a junior, where he averaged 24 points, 10 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game to lead Fenwick High School.
