Here we go again. John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats have landed yet another five-star prospect.
Wednesday morning, junior shooting guard Charles Matthews made official during an announcement at Chicago (Ill.) St. Rita's what had become quite obvious over the last 36 hours when he announced his plans to attend Kentucky.
While his decision wasn't that big of a surprise on Wednesday morning, Matthews did catch everybody off guard on Monday when he let the world know that he would be ending his commitment.
A 6-foot-5 shooting guard with length and athleticism who currently ranks No. 11 in the class of 2015, Matthews seemed to be going along just fine and had never really discussed making an early decision. However, after a Monday afternoon visit from Calipari, Matthews was ready to make a choice and once again Kentucky got their guy.
Injured for the early part of his junior season, Matthews is an explosive driver who likes to attack the rim. In particular, Matthews is very good driving along either baseline and he has the ball handling skills to push things in transition.
With his long and slender frame, explosive driving and streaky jump shooting, Matthews is similar in ways to a young version of current Portland Trailblazer Will Barton. He isn't yet quite as consistent a scorer as Barton was during his high school days, but Mathews shares many similar physical attributes to go along with the similar playing style.
Matthews is Kentucky's first commitment from the class of 2015. When he arrives in Lexington, he'll be reuniting with a former teammate. 2014 signee Tyler Ulis played with Matthews on the Chicago based Meanstreets summer team and the duo shares excellent chemistry on the floor.
