Sources Say Podcast Ep. 50: The latest on Kentucky’s pursuit of Adam Kunkel

KSR’s Jack Pilgrim is joined by David Sisk of Cats Illustrated and Shawn Smith of Go Big Blue Country for episode 50 of the Sources Say Podcast to break down the latest with Kentucky’s pursuit of Belmont transfer Adam Kunkel.

Pilgrim, Sisk, and Smith start the show by breaking down the Hebron, KY native’s recruitment and how we got to this point.

  • Yes, this is the potential transfer the Sources Say crew hinted at back in June
  • Pilgrim and Smith saw Kunkel train with Dontaie Allen last month. How did he look?
  • Who are the “early” favorites in the Belmont star’s recruitment?
  • How much will he value proximity to home?
  • What is Kentucky’s involvement?

Sisk then gives a detailed scouting report on Kunkel and why Kentucky fans should be excited about his potential addition.

  • What do OVC coaches think about Kunkel? Do they think he can play in the SEC?
  • A complete breakdown of the 6-foot-3 guard’s game
  • Is it a good fit for Kentucky? How would he fit in with the current roster and UK’s recruiting plans for 2021?

They close the show by talking about what fans should expect in the near future.

  • When is a commitment expected?
  • Could Kentucky’s campus bubble play into how hard they recruit the in-state standout?
  • The trio predicts where Kunkel will land (as of today)
