Kentucky reaches out to 2017 PG Nick Weatherspoon
2017 Velma Jackson (MS) point guard Nick Weatherspoon proved himself as one of the top players on the adidas circuit during the travel season. Tuesday night, a new blue-blood program reached out to the five-star guard: Kentucky.
Mississippi native and Kentucky assistant coach Kenny Payne put in a call to Weatherspoon, who is ranked No. 21 in the HoopSeen125 Rankings.
"Coach Payne was just talking to me about the program and how the program goes, and how I could fit with them. He wants to build a relationship with me," Weatherspoon explained.
Weatherspoon is being recruited by a handful of schools, including Mississippi State, NC State, Kansas, and North Carolina. With the Wildcats becoming involved, they could be a major option for his services.
