    Kentucky has extended an offer to Class of 2022 four-star center Kyle Filipowski, he announced via Twitter.

    The Wildcats extended Filipowski an offer by Zoom Monday.

    The 6-foot-11, 230-pound center from Wilbraham & Monson (MA) and the NY Rens, has already taken official visits to Syracuse (June 5-6), Ohio State (June 12-13), Indiana (June 15-16), Duke (June 28-29) and Iowa (June 30).

    “(John Calipari) saw him for the first time at Peach Jam,” Wilbraham & Monson coach Mike Mannix said. “(Orlando Antigua) and (Bruiser Flint) told Cal about Kyle during the spring and they wanted to make Kyle a priority at Peach Jam.”

    He also took unofficial visits to Northwestern (June 19) and UConn (June 24).

    According to 247Sports.com, Filipowski is ranked as the No. 8 center and No. 40 overall prospect in the Class of 2022.

    If Filipowski were to choose the Wildcats, he would be the second player from Wilbraham & Monson to commit to Kentucky, joining Wenyen Gabriel, who played at UK under head coach John Calipari from 2016-18.

    Kentucky currently has the nation’s No. 16-ranked recruiting class in 2022 with a commitment from five-star guard Skyy Clark.
