Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 169: Zion’s Shoe Deal + BJ Boston Commits to Kentucky

It was a busy weekend in basketball and Aaron Torres is here to recap it all, as he talks shoes deals for Zion Williamson and RJ Hampton, college basketball betting odds and a big recruiting weekend for Kentucky. Here is a recap of today’s show:

Zion Williamson and RJ Hampton get shoe deals: Zion Williamson signed a record-setting shoe deal late last week, and Aaron believes that much of the credit has to go to the exposure he received at Duke. Aaron explains the value that college basketball still plays in helping build a player’s brand, and why he wouldn’t have gotten the same money had he not gone to Duke. Aaron also discusses the shoe deal RJ Hampton signed last week, why he’s happy for Hampton, but that it’s not as big a deal as people are making it out to be.

A look at next year’s college basketball title odds: Last week a few sites updated their college basketball title odds, and Aaron tells you where the best bets lie. He tells you why you should stay away from the favorites, but schools like Louisville, Seton Hall and Baylor have good value. Could a true long shot hit to win the title?

B.J. Boston commits to Kentucky: After talking Arizona recruiting last week, Aaron discusses a big recruiting weekend for Kentucky this week. B.J. Boston is a Wildcat, and Aaron believes its huge. What kind of player is Kentucky getting? And why this could lead to a monster recruiting haul for Kentucky this season.

    I would hope that his comments regarding how “Duke exposure gets the credit for Zion’s shoe deal” is not specific to only Duke, and hopefully he would agree that a superstar could get the same benefits from Kentucky.
    I would hate to think we are sponsoring a 15 minute Duke promotion on KSR !!

      Sure comes off as a Duke recruiting boost.
      Pisses me off— already being presented to every Duke recruit —guess he doesn’t realize the fluke shoe failure had more to do with the contract,vs the classic failure of Saint K’s hyped to the max class,
      managed to hurt.
