Could Kentucky Be Interested in Another Turkish Recruit?

Omer Yurtseven

It looks like Kentucky could be in the mix for another international frontcourt player.

Many think the 6’11” Yurtseven could be a backup plan if Marques Bolden decides to go elsewhere.

Here is a little more information from Evan Daniels via Ben Roberts of Kentucky.com:

“Where I was impressed the most with him was probably his offensive touch around the rim,” said Daniels, who attended the event. “He’s got a very nice set of hands, very good touch at the basket. He did a good job as an area rebounder. It’s hard to push him off his spot, and he took a lot of physical play. He’s not an explosive athlete, but he’s a better athlete than you’d expect.”

Daniels described Yurtseven as a 6-11 kid with a “sturdy” frame. He doesn’t turn 18 years old until June, and he made it clear over the weekend that he wants to play college basketball next season.
