5-Star Recruit Wenyen Gabriel Picks UK over Duke


After an impressive summer, five star recruit Wenyen Gabriel committed to the Kentucky Wildcats Thursday morning.

Scout.com has Gabriel ranked at 10, while ESPN has him ranked at 23 in the Class of 2016.

In the end it was between Kentucky and Duke, and Gabriel chose the Wildcats.

“I felt a connection to all the coaches in my final five, but ultimately it came down to Duke and Kentucky,” Gabriel said, “and I just felt like I couldn’t go wrong either way.”

“Kentucky made it clear that they had a plan for me personally and for helping me to take my game to the next level,” Gabriel said.

Gabriel is a 6’9 senior and plays for Wilbraham & Monson Academy in Manchester, New Hampshire.
