Arizona top star willing to cut his salary pay off to play for Kentucky 2o24…

One of Kentucky Basketball’s top recruiting targets is off the board.

Commitment: Arizona Basketball Lands Five-star Forward Joson Sanon -  Goazcats


Joson Sanon, viewed as a consensus top-15 prospect in the class of 2025, has committed to the Arizona Wildcats.

Sanon also announced he will reclassify to the 2024 class, which will likely change his recruiting ranking. He’ll be eligible to enroll in college this summer.

Sanon was one of Kentucky’s top targets in whichever class he ended up in. At the beginning of the month, he visited Lexington to watch Kentucky defeat Vanderbilt in Rupp Arena on Senior Night.

Hailing from Vermont, Sanon is known in recruiting circles as a volume scorer capable of scoring at all three levels. He chose Arizona over Kentucky, Boston College, Kansas, Connecticut, Louisville, and Indiana. Sanon was also reportedly considering Overtime Elite.

While Kentucky was on the list, there was never a public mention of a Kentucky offer.

Sanon becomes the fourth member of Arizona’s 2024 recruiting class, which includes Carter Bryant (ranked 19th overall by 247 Sports), Jamari Phillips (ranked 36th overall), and 7-footer Emmanuel Stephen (ranked 91st overall).

Sanon came in as a bit of a surprise in the Kentucky Basketball recruiting world, so it’s not a major loss. However, he has the potential to be a guy who lights up the scoreboard for Arizona next season.

Kentucky will now likely turn more attention to the transfer portal in hopes of filling out a roster that’s likely losing most of the current team for next season.
