Omoruyi also recognized the pedigree of Kentucky and noted their expansive history with top recruits. “Kentucky is a school everyone wants to play at,” he said. “In college basketball, everyone wants to play for Coach Cal.”

Kentucky commits Devin Askew and Terrence Clarke are among his recruiters. But Omoruyi noted that the current basketball program is not the only factor in his decision-making process.
