    If we can pull Parker having the 1-4 top players would be amazing. Add the possibility of wiggens and you want to cry at how beautiful it is.

    I dont know what it is about this kid but I feel like hes going to shock everyone and not pick uk, unc, or duke. I dont have a clue which one of the schools he would go to on his list if he didnt pick one of those three; but I just get a hunch he goes with texas or oklahoma state

    I would rather have him then Parker. He reminds me of PPat on and off the court.

    Harrison’s ,Young, and Randle. Wiggens this year or next. Don’t sleep on Gordon either seems like he wants to play for UK but the distance is the only roadblock. Hopefully Cal can work his magic because the Gordon kid looks like a real stud who would fit in nicely at UK.

    Interesting that Aaron Harrison overtook Andrew. It’s been the other way around for almost as long as I can remember. Good job Aaron

    Anyone else worried we jumped on the Derek Willis bandwagon too early?

    #6 Nah, at the time it was important to get him and make a statement. Plus it’s always a good thing to have a solid Kentucky boy on the team. Other than Darius it seems like its been a while since we have had a good local kid.

    I hope Derek Willis appreciates the fact that he is going to be on a special team. #TeamBrianLong
