Kentucky’s roster turnover for the upcoming basketball season is going to be severe even by John Calipari’s terms.
At this point, most of the Big Blue Nation is used to having to learn a new set of faces throughout the offseason. This season is going to test your memorization skills. The Kentucky Men’s Basketball Twitter account gave everyone a brief look at the 10 (yes, TEN) players that will suit up for the blue-and-white for the first time next season.

With Keion Brook as the only returning Wildcat who has logged previous minutes, this season’s team is going to be the most inexperienced that Calipari has ever had to coach during his tenure at Kentucky. Six incoming freshmen, three transfers, and one walk-on make up the latest batch of ‘Cats. Led by Terrence Clarke and B.J. Boston – two freshmen expected to go in the 2021 NBA Draft lottery – Kentucky should find themselves in the top 10 preseason rankings if Olivier Sarr can receive immediate eligibility.
“Let’s get No. 9.”
