Earlier this week, the Xavier Musketeers became the latest team to offer a four-star 2019 combo guard. The Muskteers offered Dekeyvan “KyKy” Tandy, a standout player from University Heights Academy in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Tandy announced the offer himself on his personal Twitter account.

Xavier is the most recent high-major program to offer Tandy, joining a list that is only getting more populated. The Oklahoma Sooners, Florida Gators, Tennessee Volunteers, Cincinnati Bearcats, Iowa State Cyclones and Kansas State Wildcats are among those who’ve offered at this point. Also joining the fray are the Virginia Tech Hokies and Wichita State Shockers, as well as the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers and New Mexico State Aggies.
As previously mentioned, Tandy is a four-star player in the Class of 2019. The 6-foot-1, 160-pound combo guard ranks 87th in the nation in the class, and 10th among all combo guards, a group led by the highly touted Cole Anthony of Archbishop Molloy (NY). In the state of Kentucky, only fellow combo guard David Johnson, a fellow four-star, ranks higher than Tandy, so he is in a lofty spot in the Commonwealth.
