Australian 7-footer Isaac Humphries will reclass and enroll at Kentucky for the 2015-16 season, former La Lumiere (IN) associate head coach Brad Johnstin confirmed to SNY.tv.
Scout.com reported Humphries will be on campus this weekend and will move in on Sunday.
The addition of Humphries marks the second huge late recruiting coup for head coach John Calipari, who previously got Canadian point guard Jamal Murray to reclass to 2015 and commit to the Wildcats.
“He’ll be an impact guy from Day 1,” one Australian source who has followed Humphries for quite some time told SNY.tv. “He’ll surprise some people.”
The source added: “Isaac is a 2-year guy at Kentucky. More than likely he declares in 2017.”
