Five-star guard Jamal Murray of Kitchener — a late reclassification from the Class of 2016 — on Wednesday picked the Wildcats over Oregon, rounding out UK's 2015 class and setting up a strong backcourt for 2015-16.
Jamal Murray gives Kentucky another playmaker in a loaded backcourt.
“Murray is a scoring guard who can play either on the point or off the ball,”Rivals National Recruiting Analyst Eric Bossi said. “He shoots it well from deep, has a good build that allows him to finish through contact and he's got a reasonable feel as a passer and decision maker.”
Murray announced his decision on TSN's SportsCentre, similar to ESPN's American SportsCenter.
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
