Kentucky has released its non-conference schedule for the 2019-20 season, sans the SEC/Big 12 Challenge: https://t.co/6bNId0TIdd— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) July 23, 2019
Kentucky's team will be an exciting one to watch this season as the school was able to nab four of the nation's top-50 recruits. Two of their young players, Kahlil Whitney and Tyrese Maxey, are consensus top-20 prospects and should see immediate action once they hit the floor in October.
Ashton Hagans is the top returning player for the Wildcats, coming off a season where he averaged 7.7 points, 4.3 assists, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.6 steals in just over 28 minutes of action per game.
Kentucky will have eight guys across three classes who were top-35 overall recruits coming out of high school: EJ Montgomery (9), Tyrese Maxey (10), Ashton Hagans (12), Kahlil Whitney (12), Nick Richards (18), Immanuel Quickley (22), Keion Brooks (23) and Johnny Juzang (32).— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_ATH) May 29, 2019
There is no question that these non-conference matchups are games that you will not want to miss.
