Frank Martin Reportedly Offers Dominique Hawkins A Scholarship



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:

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

    He already has been quoted as saying he isn’t walking on anywhere.. so yeah if UK doesn’t offer him a scholly he wont be at UK. Look for an offer from UofL to come soon.

    If he won’t take a preferred walk-on position, let him go to South Carolina. UL will offer a scholarship then pull it back before he arrives, it will be too late to go to another school, then he will take a preferred scholly until the next year. Watch, this is a 15sec Pitino move.

    BTW, the aforementioned statement was in re the ‘shwipe that will always be: “Phrank Morton”.

    The other personality of the pictured psycho: That is.

    Any in state talent that we don’t offer that goes to another power conference school is ALWAYS a cat killer ie Chris Lofton. It’s the law.

    #10 thinking the same thing. We will have an extra scholly or 2. I say give it to the Ky kid.

    offer the kid….he’s got skills enough to give a few back-up minutes immediately, has already stated that he’s got no problem being a back up to the harrison’s ’cause he just wants to compete in practice against great players, grew up a ky. fan, will be here 4 years and can be the darius miller/pat patterson/d.liggins type player on future teams, we’ve got scholarships to spare after this year’s exodus….offer the kid

    Fans, we have 5 Mc’ E’ DEES ALL Americans coming in in 2013-2014.

    It’s gonna be ugly.

    But there really is no Scholly winners on this team….are there?

    Name one. The point is: FIFO.

    It sux but you are a Cat fan; it is the reality that is college basketball.

    This starts when these kids are 10 year olds.

    Hawkins WILL NOT walk-on at UK or anywhere else. Hawkins himself has stated this. Don’t know why you keep asking this. He is deserving of a scholarship.

    Agree joe..really hoping we get Hawkins here. I get the aa’s we have coming, but they will also be gone in a year. Would be nice to have Hawkins with the experience he would gain next year around or a while.

    Joe, Rc…..remove your head from your rectum and think.

    It means this: None of the current Cats are NBA ready.

    We have new blood coming in.

    Where is there room on the court, the bench, the team?

    So if he would of scored 31 at western it wouldn’t be as impressive?

    14 – This. I don’t even know why someone would even mention walking on when he has 100% ruled this out. Hawkins has multiple scholarship offers even if most of them are from mid-majors. He’s not walking on here people.

    IF he is going to play for UK, he will be a scholarship player.
