While we sit around waiting to hear how Kentucky’s 2015-16 roster will look, let’s take a second to appreciate one of the incoming players, a future star for the Wildcats, Isaiah Briscoe.
Briscoe was profiled in the latest issue of SLAM Magazine and the piece centers around why he chose Kentucky before his senior year of high school even began.
For Briscoe, the competition at UK is nothing. He’s been competing for time his whole life.
“I’m not worried about who’s there or who’s leaving,” says Briscoe, who helped Roselle repeat as state champs a couple of days after we spoke. “I’m going there to do what I got to do–contribute however I can. At St. Benedict’s, we had so many good players that there was no time to slack. If I wasn’t playing well, I had to sit down and watch. I’ve always been on my toes and never taken anything for granted. [Calipari] threw me right into that mix of names [of past elite guards he’s coached]. That’s big shoes to fill, but I’m sure that I can.”
