Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 61: Mega-Recruiting Recap with T.J. Walker + Corey Evans

It’s a new week and with it a new Aaron Torres Sports Podcast – and after the biggest recruiting weekend of 2018, Aaron brings in two of the biggest experts to break it all down. First, it’s KSR’s T.J. Walker, then’s Corey Evans.

After Aaron breaks down Day 1 of SEC Media Days and the new Final Four sites announced, he turns to T.J. The guys do a deep dive on the following subjects:

James Wiseman: Wiseman is the biggest name in recruiting circles and Aaron gives you the inside scoop on everything you need to know. Does either Kentucky or Memphis have the edge in his recruitment? Is it possible he can reclassify to 2018? Also, has Vernon Carey passed him as the best player in this class?

Vernon Carey: With Carey impressing folks across college basketball the last few weeks, is it time to bump him to No. 1 in the recruiting rankings? Also T.J. explains why he believes that Kentucky is in better position with him than most realize.

Cole Anthony: And finally, is there any “news” on Cole Anthony? Is there any way to know where he’s leaning? And does Kentucky have a chance? Also, T.J. discusses his new podcast which will be released soon.

Next up, national recruiting expert Corey Evans joins the show after a busy week in Atlanta. He discussed the following with Aaron:

Dontaie Allen: Allen was the fastest-rising star of the weekend. What kind of player is he and what allowed him to have success in Atlanta? Also, will Kentucky offer? When? And how quickly will Allen accept if they do?

News and Notes from Around the Rest of Atlanta: After an extensive talk about Atlanta, Corey wraps up by discussing other news and notes from the Under Armour event. What are his thoughts on Top 10 prospect Josh Green and his AAU teammate Nico Mannion? Could they be a package deal? And could USC – yes, USC – finish with a Top 5 class in the country or even No. 1?

You can easily listen on the KSR App, available on iTunes and Google Play. Streaming online is simple through Pod Paradise.  You can also get it directly to your phone by subscribing to the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast feed on iTunes or via Android’s Podcast Addict app.

    When Zion picked Duke, I was worried that Cal had lost some of his mojo. As it turns out, Ky very well may have been better off. Next year looks like Ky may lose some of the best players again, I won’t doubt Cal so quick this time though.
