Isaac Humphries is a singer and a thespian


Isaac Humphries, the newest member of the Kentucky basketball team, called into the show this morning to talk about why he chose the Cats, and is already on his way to becoming a fan favorite. Humphries said he committed to Kentucky for the opportunity to play for John Calipari and with the best talent in the world, blah blah blah. The interview really got rolling when Humphries said he grew up singing and acting in musicals.

“Growing up, I was really into high-performing arts. I was a singer for a really long time. Still am, really. Used to gig around, do lots of plays, shows,” Humphries said. “That was kind of my life until I hit a huge growth spurt and got really tall and started playing basketball.”

Humphries said he was a part of semi-professional productions like Oliver and The King and I. Unfortunately, he didn’t take up Matt’s offer to sing on air, instead saving it for a future appearance:

Be sure to listen to the whole interview below. Welcome to the BBN, Isaac!

    Wow. Another reason y the birds are gonna crush the kitties IN RUPP this year. Bet. At least our guys focus only on basketball. UR team better focus on beating the dance team at half time with all the scrubs Cal picked up in this class. Leave ballin’ to the 502.

      We don’t need to waste our time playing international teams. How’d that work for your season last year?
      Lewis, Snider, Johnson, Lee, Mathiang…SQUAD. #L1C4.

      You just played international teams in Puerto Rico, and you lost badly and repeatedly. And Mathiang is foreign, so is Anus.

      I am well aware that we played international teams in PR. My point is, we don’t need to waste our time with competing in meaningless games such as these. Free vacation. It didn’t do your team any good last year.

      I’m sorry, I must have missed Louisville in the Final Four…. Oh wait, you were at home watching. As usual. L1C7.

      Hey, we went 27-9 and lost to a 7-seed. Thats nothing to sneeze at.

      We went 38-1 which is considerably better and we beat you on your home court. Again.

      You all need to stop.

      Louisville, you are now the redheaded step child of the ACC (if you stick around for more than 3 years). So just shut up.

      UK, everyone knows K is better than Cal. Repeat of the last Champions Classic match up. Duke will reign supreme once again. Bring on K’s 6th.

      lol @ the ppl not getting the sarcasm here. Then again, Louisville fans do sound that stupid so perhaps I can see why yall fell for it.

      Dude, you have won one time since Cal get here. Every year you say the same thing and every year you get stomped. You’re like the gnat that just wont stop flying around even after smacking at it a million times. Also, you need to realize UK wont be freshmen ran like 2013. Also, I didnt know scrubs could get you a number 1 class ranking. You are just a flat out idiot.

      Coach Krazie, if K is so much better than Cal, then why did he copy his style? All you Dukies did was complain about how Cal is destroying basketball with his one and dones and look at ya…copying. Duke will lose when they meet up. Guarantee.

    Welcome to Wildcat Nation Isaac. I think a guy interested in Theater isn’t likely to be a problem in the classroom.
    BTW Louisville plays Auburn in FB: I dub that the Little Brother Bowl.

    I really think the people that post on here claiming to be fans of other schools, are paid employees by KSR to generate more hits, or the authors themselves, trying to generate hits on their blogs.
    I doubt anyone who is a fan of another team would not do this, unless of course they are a horrible loser in life, or too stupid to know that by commenting here, more money goes to making KSR stronger.
    It is not, without coincidence, the old style forum came back when it did. KSR had to be losing money because of the lack of hits. Now that the old system is back, hits have gone up almost exponentially. Add to it a pseudo little brother comment, and you get an automatic 10-12 more.
    Nah, they would not do that, would they? I mean they are still trying to get the other system to work, right?

      I’ve had those same feelings for some time now, too. I’ve had things that were mild in comparison get deleted, only to have a troll post remain directly above it.
