When it comes to new names on the UK recruiting radar, this is a doozy. Achraf Yacoubou, a 6-4 shooting guard will be a visitor at Midnight Madness according to Zagsblog.com. Yacoubou comes from Long Island and has said that UK is in his Top Three, along with UCONN and Villanova. He says he is a fan of Big East basketball, so UK has some work to do to catch up, but Calipari likes the kid enough to give the 2011 an elusive Midnight Madness visit offer.
Yacoubou plays with another UK recruit, Tobias Harris, and is by all accounts, a great kid off the court, who can light it up on the offensive end. Plus with a name like that, Tom Leach will be excited.
