Future Wildcat?

Scott County guard Matt Walls has said that walking on at the University of Kentucky is an option.

Walls is one of the top talents in the state to not sign with a school yet.
“I’m still wide open and am going to try and take my time to see what’s best for me,” Walls said today at Rupp Arena after scoring nine points in Scott County’s 5947 first-round victory over Oldham County.

Walls, who averages 20.3 points a game for the state’s top-ranked Cardinals, has made an unofficial visit to Eastern Kentucky University.

He said the Colonels, Morehead State, Xavier and Wake Forest were schools in the running. Wake Forest came to see him in the 11th Region final and Xavier coach Sean Miller was in attendance today.

Also watching him against Oldham County was University of Kentucky coach Tubby Smith. Walls said UK wants him to walk-on and he’s pondering the idea.

“I grew up in Kentucky,” Walls said. “Being only 20 minutes away and it being Kentucky, there’s a bunch of positives to that.”
