    Kahlil Whitney leaving Kentucky

    I’ll I DMed him and he said that it means he’s watching with extra interest, thus the two sets of eyeballs. Just kidding, I didn’t DM him. That’s creepy, or so I’m told. But that would be my guess.

    I’m with you. He’s got mad skills. Seriously. Good handles, good hops, and the goggles for crying out loud. Rivals shows he took an official to Nebbie. Other schools of interest are Cal, Stanford, USC and Vandy.

    19 points and 10 rebounds in 1 minute of action against Lamar State is what impressed me most. He even went 7 of 10 from the charity stripe that night.

    No doubt they’ll have some attrition, but wouldn’t their future pros need to declare for the draft or future transfers enter the portal before they can over sign by so many? If they have one senior that ought to mean they can sign 2 for next year, not 6.

    Can someone explain why Kentucky is allowed to sign 6 commits for 2020 (per 247 all have signed LOIs) and yet they only have 1 senior on the roster? As far as I can tell they have 13 scholarship players this year.

    What was the knock on that kid? I know highlights don't tell the full story, but he doesn't look like a 3 star to me.

    Call me crazy, but this is starting to feel an awful lot like the Ayo/Wake Forest affair. Maybe that’s just wishful thinking on my part, but I refuse to let this “news” discolor my orange tinted glasses. [insert smiley with orange glasses]
