Kentucky’s 2019 class is as talented as any in recent years here in the Bluegrass State. Prep Hoops Kentucky gives you a late season review of how our top five prospects in the 2019 class have fared thus far:
1.) Dekeyvan Tandy, University Heights
With offers from Florida, New Mexico State, Western Kentucky, Oklahoma, and Tennessee – it’s easy to see why Tandy sits at number one. He’s currently averaging 31 points per game while shooting over 61% from the field. He’s also shooting 45% from 3-point range. More importantly, University Heights is winning. With a loaded roster that consisted of another D-I player, the academy still managed to have a losing season. This year University Heights sits atop the 2nd Region with hopes of making the state tournament.
2.) David Johnson, Louisville Trinity
Johnson currently holds offers from Louisville, Xavier, and Ohio State. Playing on one of, if not the top team in Kentucky, Johnson is averaging 14.1 points per game and 6 rebounds. He’s shooting 51% from the field and 45% from 3-point range.
3.) Dontaie Allen, Pendleton County
Allen will go down as one of the top players to ever play in the 10th Region, in good company with former Tennessee standout Chris Lofton. He is currently avearging 32 points and 11 rebounds per game while shooting 60% from the field. Allen currentlly holds offers from Winthrop, IUPUI, Morehead State, Eastern Kentucky, Northern Kentucky, and Illinois State.
4.) Michael Moreno, Scott County
Scott County has only lost one game to an in-state opponent in two years. Thanks to Michael Moreno, that stretch continues up to this point. The junior forward is averaging 20.4 points and 11 rebounds per game. He holds offers from Miami (OH), Northern Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky, Iowa, and IUPUI.
5.) Kyle Rode, Lexington Christian
Lexington Christian has made themselves a contender in the super tough 11th region, and may be the only team capable of taking down Scott County. Junior Kyle Rode continues to improve, showing an ability to knock down the three more consistently and making “basketball plays”. He’s currently averaging 16 points and 8 rebounds per game. He holds offers from Lipscomb, Liberty, Wright State, Northern Kentucky, and Samford.
