Sources Say Podcast Ep. 31: Ashton Hagans rumors and Cliff Omoruyi cuts Kentucky from his list

KSR’s Jack Pilgrim is joined by Travis Graf and David Sisk of Cats Illustrated for episode 31 of the Sources Say Podcast. This week, the trio of recruiting insiders is back to break down Kentucky’s loss to Tennessee, how the Wildcats choked away a 17-point lead, and the drama surrounding Ashton Hagans.

Among the topics:

  • Kentucky looked like a Final Four team in the first 25 minutes of the game. What happened down the stretch?
  • What do we need to know about the back-and-forth between Ashton Hagans and John Calipari, Nick Richards, and others on the Kentucky bench?
  • David Sisk reviews the film (and drama) live on the air
  • Sifting through the rumors and the truth
  • Should we start worrying about Hagans as we approach SEC and NCAA Tournament play?
  • Was Kentucky’s loss good for Kentucky as they approach postseason play? History tends to lean that way.
  • Is this team still capable of winning a national title?

Then, Pilgrim, Graf, and Sisk discuss 2020 four-star center Cliff Omoruyi cutting his list to three and excluding Kentucky.

  • After hinting at this news in recent weeks, there wasn’t much shock in Kentucky missing out on Omoruyi
  • Greg Brown is Kentucky’s final scholarship offer in the frontcourt. Any news on that front? How should we feel about his father’s positive quotes about the Cats?
  • Does Kentucky feel good elsewhere? If so, who?
  • Pilgrim shares scoop on graduate transfers and why that may be Kentucky’s likely path this offseason (and moving forward)
  • Will the new NCAA transfer rule change everything right away?

Finally, the Sources Say crew breaks down Skyy Clark’s recent visit to Lexington and why Kentucky fans should feel GREAT about his recruitment.

A few talking points:

  • Pilgrim and Graf sit down with Clark and his family. How did that conversation go?
  • Is there anyone else to worry about in this recruitment?
  • When might an offer come for the five-star guard?
  • Will Clark end up in the top five of the 2022 recruiting rankings? It certainly looks that way.
  • The story behind Vanderbilt offering Clark’s little brother

To close out the show, Pilgrim, Graf, and Sisk discuss a few final recruiting notes and key visitors for Kentucky.

    We saw at the beginning of the year what Hagans is capable of doing on the court. Let’s hope he or someone else can channel THAT Ashton Hagans.

      Sisk is hard to listen to, geez. Quit stammering and drawing it out, get to the point.

    I hate the ambiguity. I get it, you have to protect sources an all but I saw it on tv. I told my buddy right after the game something happened with Ashton. He’s off, acting strange etc. I’d really like to know the scoop of what he posted on Snapchat or what is going on off the court-that’s affecting the team. Anyone ?

    Kahlil Whitney should have got more PT.

    Maxey should be starting PG.

    Hagans should come off the bench for the rest of the season.

    Nick needs to forget about AA until he learns some TuFFneSS!!!

    The offense should run through Quickley.

    Sestina is a role player.

      Disagree about Kahlil. He was bringing nothing to the table, and didn’t even utilize his raw athleticism. Almost never in position to make a play.

      Kahlil needed more PT? Did you pay attention to the beginning of the season? He was a started and got plenty of minutes. He lost minutes because he wasn’t contributing.

    And Brooks needs PT over EJ. That should have started at the beginning of SEC play.

    EJ needs to be in the gym all summer. He needs 15lbs of muscle and attitude.

    Maxey should be PG. Period.

    Hagans is the problem from what I see and feel.

    Maybe UK officials should think twice before they start campaigns for players. I truly believe there is some jealousy issues going on behind the scenes. Plus, Nick has played like crap every since they started the whole Pick Nick, so again, NO MORE CAMPAIGNS!
