The fall signing period begins on Wednesday, which means some major dominoes are about to fall in Kentucky’s 2017 class. This weekend, five-star shooting guard Lonnie Walker took his official visit to Kentucky and sat behind the bench last night for Kentucky’s 156-63 win over Asbury. Shoutout to PuppyFilterJones on Twitter who tipped us off that Walker seemed to be taking a cat nap during the first half. After checking out the replay, it does appear he nodded off:
Lonnie snoozed for a few more minutes until Briscoe pulled off this and-one off a ridiculous dish from Malik Monk:
According to Justin Rowland, apparently Walker was ill during his visit, which may explain the nap (also, the game was laughably out of control even from the start). He’s down to Kentucky, Miami, Arizona, Villanova, and Syracuse, and will take his final official visit to Syracuse this weekend. Arizona currently leads in his Crystal Ball with 80% of the predictions.
It’s still not clear whether or not Walker will sign early, but let’s watch him work.
