KSR’s Jack Pilgrim is joined by Travis Graf and David Sisk of Cats Illustrated, along with college basketball analyst Jeff Goodman, for episode 43 of the Sources Say Podcast.
This week, the trio of recruiting insiders begins the show by breaking down the latest in Kentucky’s pursuit of closing out the 2020-21 roster with one final piece.
Among the topics:
- Kentucky doesn’t feel confident in Makur Maker
- Frank Anselem is off the table (and has been for a while)
- Are there any new reclass options? Grad transfers? Final options in the 2020 class?
- Would UK be comfortable leaving things as they are now?
- How important is Olivier Sarr’s eligibility to those plans?
Then, Pilgrim, Graf, and Sisk discuss the NCAA’s two major decisions made this week and what it means for Kentucky.
- Players will be allowed to return to campus, but when?
- What does it mean for a young team like Kentucky?
- The NCAA shuts down the immediate transfer rule, at least this season
- Do you trust the NCAA to grant Olivier Sarr a waiver?
To close out the podcast, Goodman joins the show to discuss his controversial preseason rankings and Olivier Sarr’s eligibility.
- Goodman lists Kentucky at No. 24 in his latest rankings. Why?
- Is he really that low on the Wildcats? Or is Sarr just that important?
- What does he feel the NCAA will do with the Wake Forest transfer?
- What would Sarr’s eligibility mean for his rankings? Where would he put Kentucky with him?
- Goodman breaks down UK’s other pieces and his thoughts on each
