Lonnie Walker took a cat nap during last night’s game


The fall signing period begins on Wednesday, which means some major dominoes are about to fall in Kentucky’s 2017 class. This weekend, five-star shooting guard Lonnie Walker took his official visit to Kentucky and sat behind the bench last night for Kentucky’s 156-63 win over Asbury. Shoutout to PuppyFilterJones on Twitter who tipped us off that Walker seemed to be taking a cat nap during the first half. After checking out the replay, it does appear he nodded off:


Lonnie snoozed for a few more minutes until Briscoe pulled off this and-one off a ridiculous dish from Malik Monk:


According to Justin Rowland, apparently Walker was ill during his visit, which may explain the nap (also, the game was laughably out of control even from the start). He’s down to Kentucky, Miami, Arizona, Villanova, and Syracuse, and will take his final official visit to Syracuse this weekend. Arizona currently leads in his Crystal Ball with 80% of the predictions.

It’s still not clear whether or not Walker will sign early, but let’s watch him work.

    Yeah, I don’t want him anymore. Call me salty, but ANY kid that would really want to play here would NEVER fall asleep in the church of college basketball during a Cats game. Doesn’t matter how boring the game was. I can hear it already, ” Yea bruh, went to visit KY and fell asleep in the game, not woke.”

    I tried to catch some Zs myself, between dunks, but there were so many it was more like slow blinking.
