“It feels great to officially be a part of the family,” said Killeya-Jones, who is ranked No. 31 overall in the ESPN 100. “I already felt like part of the family, but now it’s even more official. It feels good.”
Killeya-Jones’ teammate Justice Kithcart, who added 19 points in the win, signed with Pittsburgh after the game.
Kentucky brought in the No. 2 recruiting class in 2015 according to ESPN, the current class is ranked No. 3; Killeya-Jones said he could see that changing.
“Oh we’re not done,” he said. “We’re still in play for more elite players, and I feel like we’ll be adding more players in the Spring Signing Period. I think we can be pretty crazy next year no matter who stays or goes. We’ve got a lot of talent, and, like I said, I feel like we’ll be adding more players.”
