Future Kentucky center Olivier Sarr is working out in Dallas leading up to his time in Lexington.

With the UK basketball players tentatively scheduled to return to campus next week, Sarr has teamed up with high-profile trainer Tyler Relph out of Dallas-Fort Worth to get prepared for the upcoming season.

In a workout with Relph, who currently has over 427,000 followers on Instagram as one of the biggest names in the basketball training world, Sarr is shown working on his baseline spin move and fadeaway jumper, among other skills.

Take a look at the clip released on Monday:

And then today, the high-profile trainer posted a video of his continued work with former Kentucky star Julius Randle – one of his top clients – along with Sarr on the same day.

Randle is seen working exclusively on his perimeter game, while Sarr gets some driving and mid-range work in.

Looking for more highlights of the future Wildcat? We’ve got you covered.

Here are Sarr’s entire 2019-20 season highlights at Wake Forest:

Last season at Wake Forest, 7-foot, 255-pound center averaged 13.7 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game. He shot 52.7% from the floor, made the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Third Team and was the runner-up for the 2020 ACC Most Improved Player award.

Sarr signed with Kentucky back on May 6 and is currently waiting on the NCAA to decide on his waiver request for the 2020-21 season. Should they approve, Sarr will be eligible to play immediately, joining Kentucky’s upcoming roster that features the likes of BJ Boston, Terrence Clarke, Keion Brooks Jr., and Devin Askew, among others.

    Lovin’ it. Wish EJ would stay. That would be a hell of a combo.

    Man, I’m so excited to see Sarr this year. I would say he will probably cut 20 or so pounds before the season starts.

    Love seeing these young men taking the initiative to train and get in shape on their own before coming to campus.

    My sources say he could be the most important player on the team…

    Gotta get him eligible this season. What’s the delay on that ? Juzang has known his fate for over a month.

      He’s guilty of trying to get eligible at UK. The fighting emmerts will do all they can to delay this as long as they can.

    He plays we will be one if the toughest outside in the tourney. If Keion improves on what he did at the end of the year and the freshman are playing at potential and we become that team that is so talented at every position that half the team will have to have a bad night for most games to be close.
