UK Freshmen Scout UK Freshmen: P.J. Washington

Way back in August I was able to sit down with each member of the Kentucky Wildcats to talk about the college basketball season ahead, and part of my discussion with the new class of freshmen included a brief scouting report on each of their classmates.

Due to time constraints I was unable to get a complete report from all seven of the new Cats, but here’s what I heard about P.J. Washington when I asked his fellow freshmen to describe his game.

On P.J. Washington…

Quade Green: “Little Charles Barkley, I would call him. He can do everything too: push the ball; he’s a one-man fast break; he can shoot the mid-range; shoot the three; and he can out-strong you and rebound and dunk on you.”

Kevin Knox: “P.J. is one of the most versatile kids on the team. He can pretty much do anything: shoot, dribble. He’s real physical, big body; so he’ll definitely be really good for us this year. I expect him to do a lot of rebounding.

Jemarl Baker: “Strong. Big. Athletic. He can shoot as well.”

P.J. Washington: “He’s a bully. He just loves to win. He’s aggressive and he’ll do anything for his teammates.”
