Kenny Walker recently watched the new Cats practice, and gave Julius Randle some very high praise in a conversation with Larry Glover. Walker said that he thinks Randle is the most talented player to come to UK since Shawn Kemp.
Of course, Kemp never officially got to play for the Cats (he signed a letter of intent and enrolled, only to fail the SAT and later leave the team after being accused of pawning two gold chains that had been reported stolen from his teammate Sean Sutton); however, he did practice with the team often, and of course, went on to become an NBA All-Star and slam dunk legend. Kemp still considers himself a Cat and even designed a pair of shoes for Reebok named “Letter of Intent.”
I’ll take it.
