Report: Tai Wynyard enrolled for the spring semester

Tai-Wynyard-1200

It looks like Kentucky will add another player to its roster in January. According to 247 Sports, Tai Wynyard has enrolled at UK for the spring semester and is currently working on his student visa application. His mother says he plans to sign with Kentucky during the early signing period, which runs from November 11-18.

Does that mean the son of world-champion woodchoppers will be ready to play in January? Not necessarily. Earlier this fall, Wynyard said he was “50-50” on whether he would play this season or redshirt. John Calipari isn’t usually in favor of redshirting players, but with four big guys in the frontcourt already, you never know.

See you soon, Tai.

    Cal’s not a fan of redshirting players, but I would assume he’s also not a fan of dropping in a wildcard in the middle of a season. what happens when we have a decent team that’s had 3+ months of playing together and playing well, then you drop in a new guy in the mix. It could be great, or it could be disastrous. I think the chances are good he will redshirt and practice with the team for the spring semester and if we end up with injuries and/or our bigs are struggling, only then will he break his red-shirt.

    Unless you plan on staying 4/5 years, what is the purpose of a redshirt? If he plans on staying that long, he probably is not that good. I think we could use some more bulk, if only as a backup.

      on second thought, you’re probably right. He’d probably rather give him garbage time than red shirt, but i still doubt he gets any significant minutes in a big game this year

    Can we start calling the fall semester the Nokia semester?

    I am going to teach the whole team the Haka war dance and I expect we will be able to use it before games by March!

    6’11” in shoes. 264 pounds in April. HE WILL PLAY THIS YEAR. We need the beef.

      I agree. You can’t tell me that Isaac Humphries is better than Wynyard! And I don’t see why he would redshirt, unless there was a concern for the playing time for current players. I doubt he’d stay more than 2 years, so the redshirt would be pointless.

    Teach the team the Haka? How about you teach the whole state the Haka!

    Hope he does play, we need him. I just don’t see Lee giving us much this year, his offense is not good at all and hasn’t improved. He would be a great back up for us, play some D and rebound. From the his tapes, his offense is already ahead of Marcus. Humphries really won’t give us much either on the defensive end. Get him in here and get that jersey on him.

    What is a SPRINT semester? A cell phone deal?
