UK Fans of the Day Want Some Thoughts on UK’s Roster

379177_10200160788958338_523532839_n

It has been an exciting two days around the Big Blue Nation (thankfully since our Card friends are marching towards a title), as we have essentially figured out the roster for next season. The three players looking at the NBA Draft made their decisions, while the rest of college basketball shivered in the background at the thought of what is to come. With that in mind, here are my thoughts on the 2013-2014 roster and how it has shaped up:

RETURNING PLAYERS:

1.Kyle Wiltjer: The internet was abuzz for a few weeks about a potential transfer by Kyle to Gonzaga, likely because of its proximity to his home. However as we often stated, Kyle seems to like it here, could be needed on the team next year (due to his valuable three point shooting) and has a lot of personal/family reasons for being in Lexington (never underestimate the girlfriend factor). It is important that Kyle realizes what is coming in however, and that he spend the summer working to improve. He can be valuable, but only if he wants it.

2. Willie Cauley-Stein: The most important decision for next year’s team was from WCS, who immediately made UK the best frontcourt group in the nation when he said he would return to Lexington. His length, athleticism and quickness will be invaluable next year and I expect a huge jump for him offensively. He has the makings of a Top 7 pick in next year’s draft and I think people will be amazed with the steps he takes.

3. Alex Poythress: No player helped himself more by making a decision to return than Alex. There was a time earlier this year when he was talked about as a potential #1 overall pick. But his play during the SEC dropped him out of the lottery and the prospects for his career were worrisome. He simply has to work harder/become more aggressive and really want to take the extra step to become the player he can be. The competition of next season can do that and I think Alex will be the biggest winner of all concerning what team hits the floor next year.

4. Jon Hood: Today Hood announced he would return for his Senior year and expects to be on scholarship. Hood improved exponentially over the course of the year and deserves another run at a national title. I am not sure what the future holds for him in terms of playing time, but he will finish his UK career having played with more NBA players than anyone in the history of college basketball.

NEWCOMERS:

5. Andrew Harrison: The point guard John Calipari wanted this entire season. You will be impressed with his “tough as nails” attitude, his ability to get to the basket and his leadership. The only knock on him has been whether he will share the ball enough, but with this roster and John Calipari, I don’t expect it to be a problem. Point guard under Calipari has never been an issue until this year. I don’t expect it to be a problem again any time soon.

6. Aaron Harrison: Drew Franklin gave us the best way to tell the Twins apart (“Two A’s in the name, plays the 2 guard”) and Aaron is finding a way to make a name for himself this Spring. He is a great shooter, who loves playing with his brother and off the ball. He is a bit of an unknown in terms of production, but as you will see this evening, he is quick and has a great release. He will be a big time scorer and the beneficiary of a surplus of athletes all around.

7. Julius Randle: The best High School/AAU game I have ever seen was last summer at the Peach Jam when Randle/Wiggins faced off. In that game, we saw what Julius Randle is. He plays like Terrence Jones, but is quicker and more athletic. He can get to the rim, finish and a very good defender. Depending on the final makeup of the lineup, he will contend for First Team All America, even in this crowded lineup.

8. James Young: Lots of people sleep on Young because of the rest of the talent on the roster, but we must remember that he is ranked as one of the ten best players in America. He can score at will and could put up 25 plus in any game next season. The only question I had with him this summer was his jump shot, but I am told it improved immensely during this season. He can lift and finish at the rim as well as anyone in America.

9. Marcus Lee: If I were to pick the sleeper choice for UK fan favorite next season, it would be young Mr. Lee. Not only does he sport a great “fro hawk”, but he also is a workhorse under the basket. He gets to every ball, rebounds as well as anyone in America and is also an effective scorer. Talked about infrequently, UK fans will love this guy next season as he does the work that this team needed so often during last season.

10. Dakari Johnson: I thought Johnson was a player who might not see a ton of time next year. That was until we saw what he has done this week. He has been the revelation of the McDonald’s AA practices and Julius Randle himself said the big man has been a great surprise. He will come off the bench, go against Willie Cauley-Stein in practice and be a huge contributor…and oh yeah, he is still a Top 15 guy this year.

11. Derek Willis: The often forgotten member of the class is a building block for the future that I do think people have slept on too often. He has athleticism, can pass well and is a good defender. He won’t see a lot of time next year, but after working with Calipari and the great talent over the next few years, I do expect him to compete for playing time soon after. A good, solid four-year pickup.

12. Dominique Hawkins (expected): It isn’t finalized yet, but I can’t imagine Dominique not getting an offer. He is a football player in mentality in a great basketball body. He is tough, hard-nosed and can do whatever you want as a point guard, all the while being a great floor general and leader. Think a little quicker Anthony Epps, and you have a player who will ensure that UK never again has problems at the PG position.

STILL TO COME (one may be #13):

Jarrod Polson: No official word has yet been said about Polson, who could graduate and either (a) play right away elsewhere, (b) stop playing basketball or (c) return and be a valuable reserve next year. I am not sure if no news means a return, but I would hope so as he is a great kid that can provide valuable experience next season. Until someone says otherwise, I would assume he is #13, unless Wiggins comes at which point he goes back to walk on status.

Andrew Wiggins: To me, the best since Lebron in high school. If he comes to Kentucky, it will be the greatest collection of talent that we will ever see at the University…period. That doesn’t mean they will be the best team, but there will never be more talent in one place at one time. I have no idea what he will do…but if he comes here…look out.

Nerlens Noel: Hasn’t made his draft plans official yet as he continues to rehab. One assumes he will go as he may be the first pick. He is a great kid with a great future…if he were to somehow miraculously come back…well I can’t think about that right now.

DEPARTED:

Archie Goodwin: I personally thought Archie should have returned as I think he could benefit from another year and he is only 18 years old. But I can’t criticize a kid who is pursuing his dreams and trying to better his life. Goodwin works very hard and that is why I think he will make it. The reality is that he has 2-3 years to impress and being a first round pick would be huge for him. Archie’s best quality is his desire and I hope he carries that to NBA success. He is the one player UK could afford to lose however because of their depth this season.

Ryan Harrow: Ryan’s leaving was the best thing for both parties. His time at UK was not the best and he isn’t a good fit for Kentucky. Ryan is a good kid and one that I personally like a great deal. But the reality is that he was a distraction this year and his transfer to Georgia State was the best thing that could have happened for both him, and the team.

Kentucky is going to be really good next year…I hope you are as ready as I am.

    #10 I love the 96 team, but in terms of “All Star” success, only one guy truly reached that peak…and that was Antoine Walker. This team will have possibly three guys (Randle, Wiggins and Andrew Harrison) who could be absolute superstars.

    Yes they havent won and yes they could all be busts. But there will be no team in UK history that has more high school loaded talent than this one…whether they meet legacies of 96 team or other teams remains to be seen

    Harrow transferring got me to thinking about other players who have transferred either to or from UK over my life (28 years). I could come up with 5 players who played both for and against Kentucky, with 3 guys winning both games.

    Wiltjer’s valuable 3 point shooting? I dunno, he shot about 36% on 3 pointers last year. Not great for a guy who doesn’t play defense, doesn’t rebound, doesn’t drive the ball.

    Wiggins is coming to UK, he pretty much let the cat out of the bag the other day, now he is just trying to add suspense saying he doesn’t remember saying that. Also Hawkins may be out with Purvis transferring from NC State cause UK is interested, but I don’t see us getting him.

    30 and 33 – There is a difference between having the best collection of talent ever and being the best team ever. Every UK team is chasing the 96 team, including next year’s squad. They have to come together and be a team to succeed. But there is no doubt that top to bottom next year’s group is more talented than 96. Without Wiggins you have 8 guys that will get drafted in the first round at some point. That is ridiculous. 96 can’t top that.

    42. You are absolutely right! The ’47 Kentucky team was probably the most talented group of players to ever wear thje blue and white. They had 10 players who were all SEC, All American, or both at some point in their careers at Kentucky. They accomplished a lot, 34-3 over all record, great margin of victory average, and an invitation to the NIT. But they didn’t win the tournament. We obviously have a lot of talent coming in next year, and they all seem to be good kids. Hopefully it will all come together, and they will cut down the nets at the end of the NCAA tournament. If any coach can accomplish this with a team this young, it is John Calipari.

    Wiltjer is not the three point shooter they believe him to be. he’s streaky, can’t get open, has to be uncontested, and it can’t be a meaningful three. If ANY of those points are present, it’s a guaranteed miss.

    Question, if there are 12 on scholarship already and its down to wiggins and polson we know who the obvious choice is.. But will cal really pull a seniors scholarship who has worked his ass off for 4 years to give it to someone who will not be there long enough to unpack his bags? just wonderin



  63. Possible
    4:35 pm April 3, 2013 Permalink

    You know this could be an outlandish statement, but, could the fact that Poythress coming back and wears #22 have an effect on Wiggins coming to Kentucky or not? It seems that, that is Wiggins number of choice and kids can become attached to numbers. And if he truly is still up in there air, maybe that pushes him to go elsewhere. Just a thought.



  64. impossible
    4:41 pm April 3, 2013 Permalink

    #64 yes that is outlandish and foolish and whatever other ish you can come up with. Or just plain ish. If a kid bases his college decision on uniform # availability, then well, that is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. Cannot fathom it.



  65. yes, he will
    4:44 pm April 3, 2013 Permalink

    This is not supposed to be a shot at polson, and this isn’ a “i don’t like polson” or a “Cal doesn’t like Polson” thing. That said- yes, you give the scholarship to Wiggins and you politely ask Polson to pay his in-state fees. UofL and IU fans will twist it and turn it into something awful, try to make Cal out to be the devil, but it really isn’t that bad. From what we’ve been told, the kid had all of two options: Liberty, or walk-on at UK. He took UK. He knew the deal going in…he was expected to pay his way, and there isn’t anything wrong with that. Syracuse and many other top programs often have 16-22 guys on the team, just more people paying their own way and getting to take free gear and have a cool experience. UK has never been able to do that because of the spacing at the Lodge.

    Most walk-ons don’t get a scholarship paid for a year, but Polson did. God Bless him. He made the most of it and really saved us in a couple games. Thats not to say that you can’t ask him to go back to walk-on status. Heck, if he finishes out his four years, he’ll probably be able to score whatever sales or middle management job he’ll ever want in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. He’ll be a relative “hero” and never be long for work. Nothing wrong with that…on either side. If kid says, “no, I’d rather go to another school and start for my graduate year”, I’m sure there are 100+ D1 schools that would love to have him under scholarship. And we shouldn’t judge him if he chooses to do that. But you get a chance for a Hawkins or a Wiggins, you got to take that.



  66. Possible
    4:46 pm April 3, 2013 Permalink

    Well, went to school with a kid that was down to two schools and chose 1 over the other because he liked the uniforms better. Lets face it, these one and done kids don’t choose schools for the education like most. And the fact the Wiggins is going to shine wherever he goes could make any reason possible for not choosing UK possible. Just because you may not be able to fathom it, doesn’t mean an 18 year old KID doesn’t base his decision off something so minute.



  67. Possible
    4:48 pm April 3, 2013 Permalink

    66, I agree and also, like you said, he came in as a walk-on and chances are Polson knew/knows that the scholarship was due to the fact that they had enough to reward him. If there isn’t enough, for whatever reason, Polson will be the first to have his pulled.

  74. what
    5:04 pm April 3, 2013 Permalink

    72- what are you talking about? hawkins is scholarship #12 in the above scenario, and Noel is already gone, everyone knows that. pretty simple to understand, but the rest of us in this thread seemed to be working from the list Jones delivered above. try reading the actual post before criticizing the comments. I (#66) was just answering the question from #63 regarding polson. (And if you’ve been on this or any other site in the last month, you’d know that Hawkins won’t be here as a walk-on. Unless his coach and him are using that as a bargaining chip…no scholarship means no Hawkins.) And as I said, it wasn’t anti-Polson…I love the kid. If he had more offers than just Liberty, good for him. I always hear Liberty as the one referenced. As for whether Hawkins or Polson is better, I didn’t see them both in high school so I won’t comment. That said, Polson didn’t have offers from other Power6 schools like Hawkins does.



  75. Ksu
    5:12 pm April 3, 2013 Permalink

    75, I know Noel is going. Look on the roster, people coming back & newcomers is 11. Please try to keep up. All of Hawkins offers are mid majors, like polson. South Carolina is a mid major. Hawkins is shorter & not any more athletic than polson. If he wants to play, he should go to the other schools or he will be just like polson. If they get wiggins, Hawkins ain’t coming. If they don’t, Hawkins does what jarrod did and receives the last ride. HE WAS ASKED TO BE A WALK ON! Dude

    #76 Hawkins is not as highly touted or as talented as the rest of the UK commits in the 2013 class. But he is a 3 star recruit on both Scout and Rivals, with schollie offers from South Carolina, WKU, Tennesse Tech and Morehead and has gotten looks from Arkansas, Bama and others. Polson? You can’t even find him on Rivals. Not rated on Scout. He did not receive offers from even WKU or Tenn Tech .. in fact his Scout bio doesn’t list any schools of interest or offers. You can rate Hawkins over Polson simply on the basis of how he led his team to the Sweet 16 title.

    Why the ’96 comments? Still?
    Where are our shooters for this team? 96 had Delk Anderson mercer McCarty Pope and Toine who could all shoot decent outside. Next year u have to count wiltjer as an outside threat.
    Comparing Hawkins to Epps only quicker is also rediculous. A quicker Anthony Epps would be ranked. Lol.
    Im looking forward to next year, but be realistic and give these guys a chance. Cal is gonna get sick of this 40-0 talk every year. It’s not fair

    #80, your an idiot. Polson was a 3 star on all those, including espn. Hawkins isn’t listed on there. His overall rating was higher too. He is just like polson. Jarrod got multiple offers from d1 schools. Dude, you don’t know what your talking about. Go get in the middle



  82. ksu is an idiot

    #83, nice try all the same young, dumb dip. Go to the sites, no info on hawk. He he. I did that a long time ago. If he wants to actually play go to the other schools. I know what jarrod did to him on HS. Hawk looked the same then as he does now. Your digging a hole.

    #82 apparently you are functionally illiterate. DUDE, before I posted I went to Scout and Rivals and did my homework. Go do the same. I didn’t make it up fool. LOOK IT UP! Polson was a 1 star on Espn. I just looked tool.

    #86, you are a LIAR!! They don’t list 1star dip. We can do this all night. Jarrod has a Wikipedia page MF. Calling me a tooll reels me your age, and trust me your jealous of jarrod. Poor thing, it must be rough. Hopefully your balls will drop soon.

    Guys, the number is 72. That is a 3 star #. Hawkins is 70. They stop rating after freshman year. The stars are off. He’s a junior. What a bunch of dumb asses. I was there. Poor things. He couldn’t back me up at ksu.

    95 how many stars does Hawkins have on Scout and Rivals? See links above. How many stars did Polson have on Espn? See link above. If you can read or find someone who can, just get back to me and admit that Hawkins is rated 3 stars. Quit backtracking, man up and admit it when u blow smoke out ur rear.

    I never said hawk wasn’t a 3 star. He is at 70.
    He is jarrod. Just shorter.

    Elliot Pitts. Rated #100 2013. 4*, 82

    Namon wright, rated #60 2014. 4 star, 80

    Aaron holiday, rated #25 2015. 4star, 86

    Jarrod was a 3 star @ 72

    Good night.

    I don’t get why people have been sleeping on dakari, he is the #1 C and a borderline top 10 player he’ll get some pretty good minutes IMO

    I don’t understand why everyone is so enamored by Hawkins. I’d taken Polson over an unproven Hawkins any day.
