When you score 31 points in Rupp Arena, no matter what level of competition it may be, people take notice. That’s exactly what happened today for Dominique Hawkins. After posting 31 points and 12 rebounds to lead Madison Central to victory over Holmes in the KHSAA Sweet 16, South Carolina head coach Frank Martin apparently called Hawkins and offered him a scholarship according to this tweet from Dan Rieffer:
South Carolina’s Frank Martin has offered Madison Central’s Dominique Hawkins a scholarship, per a very reliable source.

Could a scholarship at another SEC school be too much to turn down for a walk-on spot at Kentucky?
