After playing host to a pair of unofficial visitors over the weekend, Kentucky has another prospect on campus Tuesday.

Baltimore (Md.) St. Frances Academy 4-star point guard Adrian Baldwin is currently in Lexington for an unofficial visit.

Baldwin (6-0, 170), who goes by 'Ace', is ranked 83rd overall and the No. 18 point guard in the 2020 class by the industry average 247Sports Composite rankings.

Kentucky is the first stop on a tour of unofficial visits for Baldwin, who will also see Louisville (June 13), Seton Hall (June 23), Virginia (June 30), Pittsburgh (August 4) and Kansas (September 28) for Late Night in the Phog. He also visited Villanova and Georgetown last fall.

Baldwin plays for the same travel program that produced Wildcats freshman point guard Immanuel Quickley, who will become just the fourth Maryland native in Kentucky basketball history to suit up for the Wildcats, joining Roger Day (1949-50), Bob Windsor (1965-66) and Darnell Dodson (2009-10).

He arrived in Lexington Monday evening and was hanging out with Quickley in the Joe Craft Practice Facility.

Playing for Team BBC on the Adidas Gauntlet travel circuit, Baldwin is averaging 12.7 points, 3.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game for this season while shooting 40.5 percent from the three-point line (15 of 37) and 80.6 percent from the free throw line.

"Ace is very crafty and a tough penetrating point guard," Team BBC Team Director Jide Sodipo told Evan Daniels of 247Sports last October. "He can get into the lane and also create scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates. Still getting better, I believe his best basketball is still ahead."

He holds early scholarship offers from UConn, Kansas State, Miami, Providence, Rhode Island, Rutgers, TCU, UNLV and VCU among others and is receiving interest from the likes of Kentucky, Kansas, Illinois, Georgetown, Villanova and North Carolina.

"I get my team involved," Baldwin told Daniels. "I'm a floor general. I have a high IQ and see the floor well."

Kentucky has only extended two known scholarship offers in the class of 2020, to Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School 5-star wing Scottie Barnes and Wichita (Kan.) Sunrise Christian 5-star center N'Faly Dante, both of which came during the spring recruiting period back in April.

Barnes (6-7, 180) is ranked No. 7 overall and the second-ranked small forward in the 2020 class while Dante (6-11, 230) is ranked 10th overall and the top center.

The Wildcats hosted both Hazel Green (Ala.) 5-star point guard Kira Lewis and Falmouth (Ky.) Pendleton County 3-star wing Dontaie Allen for unofficial visits Sunday.

Kentucky coach John Calipari and UK assistant Tony Barbee are currently in St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada watching the USA under-18 team compete at the FIBA Americas Championship.

The staff is watching UK commit Tyrese Maxey along with 2019 5-star recruits Cole Anthony, Matthew Hurt and Josiah James.

Baldwin is being recruited by UK assistant coach Joel Justus, who was also the point man on Quickley.
