Report: Australian 7-Footer Isaac Humphries to Reclass, Enroll at Kentucky

FIBA U17 World Championships - DubaiAustralian 7-footer Isaac Humphries will reclass and enroll at Kentucky for the 2015-16 season, according to a report from CBSSports.com.

Former La Lumiere (IN) associate head coach Brad Johnstin, who is close to Humphries, said by text: “Everything is speculation. Anything out there hasn’t come from Isaac.”

The addition of Humphries would mark the second huge late recruiting coup for head coach John Calipari, who previously got Canadian point guard Jamal Murray to reclass to 2015 and commit to the Wildcats.

“He’ll be an impact guy from Day 1,” one Australian source who has followed Humphries for quite some time told SNY.tv. “He’ll surprise some people.”

The source added: “Isaac is a 2-year guy at Kentucky. More than likely he declares in 2017.”

With the addition of Humphries, Kentucky would have players from Australia, Canada (Murray and Mychal Mulder), Haiti (Skal Labissiere) and New Zealand (Tai Wynyard, expected to enroll in December.) To read more of this story, click here
