One of the more anticipated decisions of the c/o ’19 was resolved recently when Dekeyvan “KyKy” Tandy announced that he would be taking his game to the next level at Xavier University.
The combo guard from UHA was highly sought after by the likes of Clemson, Cincinnati, and Auburn (among others). It ultimately came down to Ole Miss and Xavier. He went into an official visit with the Musketeers on October 19th and had already planned to announce his decision the following Tuesday. If they hadn’t won him over before then, apparently they sealed the deal on that trip. He came home and made it official a couple days later.
Tandy is the second player from the state of Kentucky to join Xavier’s 2019 class joining Walton Verona’s big man Dieonte Miles (rated as high as a 3 star center from Walton, KY).
These two will make a total of 4 from the Bluegrass State joining junior Leighton Schrand (Villa Hills) and junior guard Quentin Goodin (Campbellsville, KY) who has played a big role in Xavier’s success over the last two seasons.
With the decision out of the way, Tandy is freed up to focus on his senior season. As a junior he averaged 30.5 ppg while shooting nearly 45% from behind the arc and nearly 5 rebounds per game as well. He will be in the mix, if not the favorite for the Mr. Basketball award. His senior year will be one to keep an eye on, but where he will play in college is no longer in doubt.
