Meet Willie Cauley

Kentucky has their hearts set on pulling one big guy out of Kansas already, but could there be two on the agenda?  According to Matt this morning, he’s hearing that the Cats are very involved right now with four-star center Willie Cauley of Olathe, Kansas.  Coach Cal checked Cauley out during the evaluation period and things are apparently heating up between the two parties (that sounded weird, sorry).  The 6’10” center is ranked in the top 50 of 2012 prospects by ESPN (#33), Rivals (#41) and Scout.com (#29).  He holds offers from Kansas State, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and USC.  He also kind of looks like a skinnier DeMarcus Cousins and lives with former Kansas City Chiefs great Will Shields.

Anyway, here’s what he does:

    I think they should have used some of that Paint money and bought more stands for the fans

    3rd, and he looks like a Joahkim Noah/Boogie mix in the face.

    I’ve been out of town for a few weeks. Have we signed any recruits for the 2012 class?

    #3… agree but that is still a pretty sweet raven painting. My HS had a beige color on the walls of our gym. Definitely like the giant mascot.

    Okay, agreed that he is a 6″10 dude who can stand under the basket and dunk. Is there more to his game?

    10, i agree, not that impressive of clip. may look a lil like big Cuz, but in no way even close to compare the two in talent. Looks like a guy that needs a lot of work and not what we are used to in the last couple of years in recruiting. After next year i think we are def. gonna need some quality guys coming in, i think we will lose a lot this year. Maybe im wrong though.

    isn’t this the school that was on espn for blindfolding the coach for a halfcourt shot as a prank but he actually made it?

    #16 I totally agree, this guy looks like the 2nd coming of Eloy, but skinnier…I don’t think things are heating up between UK and this guy as much as ppl think, with all the studs we have a shot at, this guy can’t be a big priority, maybe a backup plan
