University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Wake up, young man!

You have to think that if you’re a top 2013 recruit, you had to expect that you were going to be up late Tuesday night chatting with coaches deseperate to let you know how much they love you.  Sleeping probably isn’t on the agenda for most guys.  Well, Chris Walker isn’t most guys.  The 6’9″ power forward from Florida ranks as Rivals’ third-best player in the class of 2013 and is known for his inside-outside game and athleticism.  And now, his sleeping. 

Here’s what  Walker Tweeted:

I’m sure the two guys will get together to talk about Bieber, Cars 2 or whatever, so there’s still hope.  In fact, there’s a lot of hope because Walker said back around Christmas that the Cats were #1 on his list and spent some time chatting with Orlando Antigua.  And that’s a good thing because, well, the kid can play.

Enjoy.

    What was the no jumpshot 3 pointer in that video?! Also, whoever this team has videoing the games should be let go…

    Looks like a solid prospect. Glad that he is fond of Coach Cal and the Cats. It is nice that the best of the best are again interested in our program. That`s what Cal promised – the best of the best!

    Cal seems to have a thing for forwards with a funny looking 3 point shot.

    Right handed TJ. Same ugly 3 point shot. He looks good though.

    he should come to the cats, rock #24, and lead us to a championship.

    He’ll need to break that no-jump-three habit before he goes to college, otherwise, even at 6’9″, he’ll get stuffed on a daily basis.

    Looks like a young Terrence Jones. LOVE IT! Wish I could have seen the finish to the first dunk in the very beginning of the film.

    To be 6’9″ he sure doesn’t play very big!! Looks like he would have one thing in common with T/J, getting his shot blocked!!

    Looks good. It seems like he would fit right in with the dribble drive with his ball handling skills and athleticism.
