Is Kentucky about to add another player to its roster, the top shooter in the country this time? Well, to put it briefly, yeah.

Kentucky is in the midst of a terrific recruiting period, landing three commitments in the last four days. Now, with two more transfer targets on campus, the Wildcats are looking to close in on one of the most coveted players and shooters in the nation.

With just one season of eligibility left, Dayton guard Koby Brea joined the portal earlier this month and became the most sought-after talent right away. He swiftly narrowed his selection to Kentucky, North Carolina, Duke, Kansas, and UConn as his top five programs.
Brea then made plans to visit Duke and UConn twice. He canceled his trip to Duke and would only make one visit to UConn. All indications so pointed to the sniper making his way to Storrs.
However, the dominoes began to fall. And now, with Brea arriving for a visit on Monday night, Kentucky is in the “driver’s seat” to land him.

“Now, the intriguing part here is w/ Koby Brea, who previously put out a finalist list of Duke/UConn/Kansas/UNC/Kentucky,” CBS Sports’ national insider Matt Norlander wrote in a tweet. “With the other four no longer recruiting Brea, Kentucky is absolutely in the driver’s seat and lined up to land the highly coveted 3-point specialist.”

One of those domino’s was when Aidan Mahaney, also a Kentucky target, announced his commitment to the Huskies 72 hours after the commitment of 2024 five-star wing LIam McNeeley. Both moves eliminated UConn from the Brea sweapstakes

This season, Brea averaged 11.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 29.1 minutes per game. She also hit the greatest three-point percentage in the nation, 49.8 percent, from outside the field. He hit 100 for the season and made three 3-pointers per game.

As a junior, Brea shot 37 percent from three and hit 50 3s. He averaged 6.8 points in 26.5 minutes per game.

Brea shot 42.3 percent and hit 63 3s in 21.7 mintues per game as a sophomore. He averaged 8.1 points per game.

While Kentucky is still heavily involved with a handful of prospects, a commitment from Brea and his shooting ability would immeditley give Kentucky an entirely different form of expectations.

In today’s world, nothing is set in stone, but if you’re Mark Pope, you have to adore your seat.
