Meet Logan Fain, a 10-year-old boy who wears an above knee prosthesis. Louisville prosthetist Aaron Royster met Logan at the Endeavor Games in Edmond, Oklahoma, where Logan competed for the first time in the 60-meter, 100-yard dash and the 200-yard dash and earned a silver medal in each. According to Aaron, Logan’s a huge Kentucky fan and siad he’d be “shocked” to see his picture on KSR. Congrats, Logan, and go Cats.
— Another day, another “YAHTZEE!”. A few hours ago, UK got a commitment from 2016 lineman Landon Young from Lafayette High School. Young has played defensive end in the past, but at 6’7″ 250 lbs at only age 15, is being recruited as an offensive lineman. Welcome to the fam, Landon.

— There’s plenty of basketball going down in Charlottesville, Virginia this afternoon, as the NBAP Top 100 Camp rolls on. UK commit Karl Towns is expected to play this afternoon, but in the meantime, there are plenty of quotes about the Cats from the other recruits in attendance. Count 2014 PG Josh Perkins as another player waiting for an offer from Calipari. Perkins told the Herald-Leader’s Ben Roberts that he’d be open to playing with Emmanuel Mudiay and Rashad Vaughn in college, both of which have offers from the Cats. Expect plenty more 2014 recruiting chatter over the next two days.
— Is it bad that I’d rather talk about football recruiting right now? (Stoops syndrome?) How’s this for an exciting quote:
“We have never seen anything like this from Kentucky, ever. I understand that it is only June, but I cannot remember that program having this kind of momentum in all my years covering recruiting. The class has added some tremendous playmakers, and they are getting guys from all over.”
That comes from Mike Farrell, Rivals’ National Recruiting Analyst. Plenty more where that came from here.
