Skal Labissiere’s draft stock has been a hot topic this season, and in the latest Draft Express mock draft, Skal is no longer the top Kentucky prospect. That spot now belongs to Jamal Murray, who comes in at #8 in Draft Express’ 2016 mock draft; however, Skal is still in the top ten, which is further proof that despite low numbers, he could still be drafted high based on potential.

Isaiah Briscoe and Tyler Ulis also made the mock draft, projected to go in the second round:

#8: Jamal Murray
#10: Skal Labissiere
#32: Isaiah Briscoe
#51: Tyler Ulis

Meanwhile, if you really want to peer in the crystal ball, three of UK’s 2016 signees made Draft Express’ latest 2017 mock draft:

#4: De’Aaron Fox
#8: Bam Adebayo
#15: Malik Monk

This morning, Bam posted this pic on Instagram, and you cannot convince me he’s only 18 years old:

As JT would say, that’s one G.A.M.

    Can you imagine what Bam is going to look like once he has a college level strength and conditioning coach, and his diet is being monitored?

      I wouldn’t want to have to play against him. Dude is an animal.

    Duke has the #2 prospect for the 2016 Draft and the #1 #2 prospects for the 2017 draft via DraftExpress. How are they recruiting/developing better than us?

      They’ve already developed those 2017 recruits that aren’t even on the team?
