LONDON, Ky. (WYMT) - North Laurel standout Reed Sheppard announced via Twitter that he has received an offer from Kentucky.

The offer comes just one day after Sheppard played in front of UK head coach John Calipari at the 3SSB Adidas event in Birmingham. He scored 26 points for Midwest Basketball Club in his first Friday game of the event.

Sheppard, a rising junior in high school, also has offers from nine other schools, including Arizona State, Iowa, Louisville, and Texas A&M. He received an offer from Indiana just hours after the Kentucky offer.

Sheppard led all high school players in scoring in his sophomore season with 843 points, averaging 30.1 points per game, leading North Laurel to a 25-3 record and a 49th District championship.
