That loneliness puts him in the topic of where does he rate amongst other committed recruits nationally. ESPN recruiting analyst - Paul Biancardi, rated the UK commit as the fourth best committed prospect of the 2015 class on his Recruiting Nation blog.
Here is Biancardi's analysis of Matthews:
4. Charles Matthews, Kentucky
Matthews has been committed to Kentucky since February 2013 and has demonstrated steady play on the spring and summer circuit. At 6-foot-5, he is comfortable taking defenders off the bounce. Matthews, who is ranked No. 30 in the ESPN 100, has made improvement as he now takes the pull-up jumper when defenders back up. He is in constant communication with the Wildcats coaching staff, especially coach John Calipari who tells Matthews to stay confident and competitive. Gary DeCesare, Matthews' high school coach, has been extremely successful and knows how to prepare players for college. Expect Matthews to continue to influence games with his offensive skill and team play.
