Jonny David and Dillon Pulliam are your new walk-ons

We already knew the Cats were adding Pennsylvania guard Jonny David to the roster this season, but this morning, UK announced another walk-on: Dillon Pulliam from Harrison County. Pulliam played at Transy last season and will have to sit out this season.

Some details on Pulliam, from UK:

The 6-3 sophomore guard played in 25 games for the Pioneers, averaging 4.8 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. At Harrison County High School, Pulliam was a five-year member of the varsity basketball team. During his career, he made the All-10th Region Team three times, was named the district tournament MVP and was a member of the school’s 1,000-point club.

Pulliam finished his career at Harrison County fifth in career scoring, third in career 3-point field goals and set a school record for most 3-point field goals made in a game with nine.

Per NCAA transfer rules, Pulliam will have to sit out the 2015-16 season. He will be eligible starting in the fall of 2016.

“I’m excited to be a part of the UK basketball program and have the opportunity to play with other talented players under a great coaching staff,” Pulliam said. “Growing up in the state of Kentucky, I know how awesome Big Blue Nation is and I can’t wait for the season to start.”

Welcome aboard, boys.

    For the record Royse is not his Uncle. They are related but Dillon was worked for this, both on the court and in the classroom. Don’t be a hater and don’t try to cast a cloud of doubt over this young man’s accomplishments.
