Jorts senior day chat wrap

jorts

Earlier today, our man Jorts took part in a live chat over at UK Athletics to connect with his fans ahead of his big Senior Night celebration. Here’s a look at some of the highlights from the chat:

What are your plans after you graduate?

JH: I definitely plan on trying out for NBA Draft, testing out the waters. If that doesn’t work I’ll see what overseas offers. If that doesn’t work hopefully I’ll do something with kids one day.

What has been your fav moment at UK?

JH: Definitely the Louisville game, and all of last year, but definitely the Louisville game.

What kind of music do you listen to pre-game? Any favorite songs?

JH: Play that funky music white boy is always a good one. A little R. Kelly and Eminem too.

Do you think you’ll cry tomorrow?

Eric Lindsey: His brother is in the room and is nodding yes.

JH: I’ll have teary eyes but I don’t know if they’ll be running down the cheeks or not. If I see my parents cry, I’ll cry.

For tomorrow’s game: clean-shaven, or bearded?

JH: As of right now we’re going to keep the chin strap but things might change before game time.

What is your weirdest fan moment at UK?

JH: I was walking to a football game. Me, Perry and Mark Krebs and we were dropped off by the Johnson Center. There was a party bus and a bunch of guys out there drinking a little bit. This one guy got a hold of us, grabbed my hand and started screaming out, “it’s Jorts!” and then he looked down and started chanting out “Jorts is wearing Jorts! Jorts is wearing Jorts!”

Do you have any other nicknames? or nicknames for any teammates?

JH: They call me Big Nasty, Big White Kid. Jarrod Polson is Justin Bieber. Hoody is Squirrel. Some call Doron Smush Parker. I call Enes, Turkey.

Who is your favorite celebrity you have met?

JH: My girlfriend, Ashley Judd.

So there’s a little sampling of what the big fella had to say before he’s honored as the lone senior on this year’s squad. There’s plenty more to check out in the full chat, as he talks about his favorite part of playing for Cal and who he still keeps in touch with, among other topics. You can find the whole thing by following this link.

Go Cats. Go Jorts.

    I feel like we are just getting to know the real Jorts, and he’s obviously a fan favorite. It was Jorts, Patterson, Miller and Liggins who stuck with us and helped us transition out of UK’s darkest hour in decades! We will never forget them!

    Jorts and Ashley Judd would have some crazy babies. They’d wear jorts and a tight white Kentucky t shirt.

    Jorts is the modern day Rob Lock. I will miss him to. He has given great effort this season. Latest bracketology has us as a 5 out west. I wish that was it cause I would love our chances to go to Houston for final four. Congrats jorts. Let’s finish this year strong. Go Big Blue!

    i special player who will be considered a legend … if not for his stats but for his attitude and general goofiness ! (though we would be absolutely sunk w/o his stats this year … particularly the rebs) he is the white boogie !

    Jorts sure has worked it all out well for himself at UK. Hope he puts up a double-double tom night.

    I would like to see many pairs of Jorts at the game in his honor.

    Maybe UK fans can pool all their money together and purchase a lower set of chompers for ole Jorts. Where are his teeth? Maybe he’s just trying to fit in with the majority of the fanbase.
