Power forward visits UK campus

Louisville Manual sophomore Jacob Jenkins was not the only class of 2009 visitor that Kentucky entertained on December 30th. The Cats also brought a talented 6-8 class of 2009 power forward out of the Big Ten region in for an unofficial visit that weekend.

As previously reported, sophomore guard Jacob Jenkins make an unofficial visit to Kentucky for the December 30th Eastern Kentucky game. However, there was another 2009 recruit in Lexington as well.

Jordan Prosser, a 6-foot-8 power forward out of Goodfield, Illinois took in the Cats and the Colonels. "I liked it, it was really fun," said Prosser. "We watched the game, and they took us around campus," he continued. "We saw the practice facility, they should be in there in about three weeks," Prosser said.

Prosser is among the top players in his class in the state of Illinois, for Eureka High School. As a power forward, he already possesses traits that will make him a solid post prospect. "My strengths are my post moves and my rebounding. I run the floor pretty well, too."

Jordan lists several teams among his favorites at this early stage. "I like Wisconsin, Illinois and Notre Dame. Kentucky is probably fourth or fifth right now," said Prosser. Prosser has taken numerous unofficial visits. "I took a visit to Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Indiana and Xavier. I have also been to Illinois several times," Prosser said.

At this point, it seems to be an uphill battle for the Cats to land Prosser, but with two more years of high school, a lot of things can change.
