NEW YORK -- The recruitment of Victory Prep star junior forward Jarred Vanderbilt is in its infancy, but it is worth noting that the Houston native is one of just 10 players from the class of 2017 with an offer from Kentucky.

The 6-foot-8 Vanderbilt got a taste of Commonwealth fandom when Victory Prep participated in the Marshall County Hoop Fest and the Bluegrass Showcase last month. While in the area, Vanderbilt took in Kentucky's game against Arizona State at Rupp Arena on Dec. 12.

The Houston school, which is coached by 10-year NBA veteran Rodney McCray, will be back in Kentucky Jan. 7-10 for Mustang Madness in McCracken County.
