After raving about the university, the city of Lexington, and all of the people she and Julius met over the last year at UK, Carolyn Kyles, his mother, took credit for preparing Julius for basketball at a young age.
“You’re going to laugh at this but it’s that famous spin move!” she said, surrounded by a mob of TV reporters and cameras. Kyles took credit for teaching Julius his go-to move.
Julius, standing off by himself behind the media, laughed at the attention his mom was receiving after his announcement. “Look at my mom!” he shouted to his friends.
What an exciting day for both of them.
