Great article by Jody Demling on future Cat GJ Vilarino. Many have openly wondered whether GJ is good enough to play at UK and there have been (and still occasionally are) rumblings that he might not end up there. But as time goes on, his commitment to UK seems stronger and as this quote shows, his appreciation of the program grows:
“When I first committed, I don’t think I fully understood the magnitude of it,” he said. “Now I understand it better. People are going to come after me because I am going to play for the best program in the country, so basically it is just me trying to get better every day.
“I love the fans and how they love basketball down there. I think it’s a perfect fit for me when I get there.”
