In a news blurb that flew under the radar due to the timing of the announcement (in the midst of the Kentucky football game), apparently both Sam Malone and Brian Long will be receiving scholarships this season. Malone and Long were both walk-ons last season, but the smaller roster size this year allows Calipari the chance to reward both of them for at least one season. Even with the move, Calipari will still have 1 available scholarship just in case a player becomes available mid-season. Tony Trocha theorists, have a field day with that one. Go Cats and I really hope Brian Long can appreciate this one… (radio joke).
