After a few kicks to the gut, Kentucky basketball’s 2015 recruiting class finally got a shot in the arm.
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.
