Believe it or not, the college basketball season is a mere 63 days away, and there’s still plenty the Big Blue Nation needs to learn about John Calipari’s latest squad. For one, the BBN needs to know if Olivier Sarr will be suiting up for the Cats (waiting on you, SEC). Additionally, the BBN needs to start learning more about the aforementioned squad, especially since Keion Brooks is the only familiar face who earned playing time last season. Enter, Isaiah Jackson.
The Kentucky basketball Twitter account has been working to bond that bridge (so to speak) between the fanbase and the team, and today’s bridge includes the 6-foot-9 forward from Michigan. In true Jay Bilas fashion, the Twitter account goes “door-to-door” (as opposed to Bilas’s “90 feet”) with a member of the team, who spends the short walk answering icebreaker-esque questions.
Did you know Jackson compares himself to the Incredible Hulk? What’s his favorite food? How about his dream car and his NBA role model? Plus, shoutout to Kentucky, his dream school.
Here’s the short video:

If that wasn’t enough, check out KSR’s own series on UK’s incoming freshmen, titled “Getting to know the new guy.” You can read up on Jackson by clicking here.
63 days can’t come soon enough.
