Kentucky may have gotten involved with Amile Jefferson late, but the Wildcats are in the mix.
The 6-foot-7 forward left Thursday night with his father for an official visit to the school.
“They’re interested enough to have him for an official visit,” Philadelphia Friends Central coach Jason Polykoff told SNY.tv Friday. “They also brought the entire coaching staff to campus a few weeks when they were allowed to come up and talk with Amile. I believe they had a home visit later that night as well.”
Polykoff said Jefferson’s list currently includes Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Temple, Villanova, Stanford, UConn, Kentucky, Ohio State, N.C. State and Maryland.
