The latest big-time recruit in the state of Kentucky is drawing a lot of attention these days, and lately it’s coming from the UK staff led by John Calipari.

Reed Sheppard is a well-known legacy recruit in the Commonwealth in part because his parents are UK legend Jeff Sheppard and Stacey Reed Sheppard, a top scorer herself for the women’s program. Of course, other coaches are also on hand to recruit the younger Sheppard at the Adidas event in Birmingham this weekend, such as Louisville’s Chris Mack. But it was notable that UK had its entire staff, including Orlando Antigua, Chin Coleman and Jai Lucas.

Sheppard is rated the No. 2 player in the state of Kentucky, and the No. 12 combo guard in the country, according to 247Sports.

Sheppard will be arguably the most-watched recruit in Kentucky the next two years, and his list of nine reported offers will surely grow by the week for a while.
