Following a disappointing freshman season for a recruit of his caliber, Sacha Killeya-Jones spent the spring fighting off unsubstantiated transfer rumors, and now he wants you to keep sleeping on him.
The big man, whose confidence seems high as he heads into the summer before his sophomore season, tweeted Tuesday afternoon, “Keep sleeping on me.. I love it.”
Keep sleeping on me.. I love it

For those of you who may be a little confused by the tweet, to “sleep on” means to overlook, ignore or completely forget someone or something. Killeya-Jones does not mean “sleep on” in the literal sense, at least not by my interpretation.
Last week I ranked Killeya-Jones as one of the players I am most excited to see in the fall. Hopefully there won’t be too many people sleeping on his game then, after a freshman-to-sophomore transformation. But if he doesn’t make great improvements from Year 1 to Year 2, there are plenty of bodies that will be fighting for playing time in the frontcourt.
