Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.



If you’re one of the many fans who read into a recruit’s Twitter activity, Cheick Diallo’s most recent follow is upsetting. Kentucky’s top frontcourt target began following Perry Ellis, the ninth-year senior forward at Kansas. (Yeah, you know, the bald one. Him.)

There’s some buzz on the internet that Kansas has overtaken St. John’s in the race with Kentucky for Diallo. That rumor and his new Twitter friendship with Ellis are enough for a minor Tuesday afternoon freak out for some of you.

Can we get Kylie Jenner to slide in those DMs?

    “Hey Perry, I was hoping for a really long stay in college. Shorter term goal would be to perform below expectations, and always exit the tourney early. Any tips big bro?”

    “Also, I fear elevation changes, so any tips where I might find completely flat farm land for hundreds of miles?”

    I’m at the point now where I am like forget it, whoever is on the opening day roster is who we are going to go to war with, we seem to be missing out on all the recruits…. Newman to Miss St, Diallo to Kansas, who cares. Let them go. Tyler is a winner, Briscoe is a winner, Skal is a winner, M. Lee is a winner, as are Hawkins, Willis and AP. If that is who we have on the roster then that is who we will win with.

    He can follow him on Twitter as long as he doesn’t follow him to Kansas. Besides, who would want to play with a balding player in his 25th year with the same team like Perry Ellis.

    This is getting laughable. Wasn’t it yesterday everyone was saying it was down to St. Johns and UK?

    Just sit back and let the (blue) chips fall where they may. We may not be worldbeaters if we don’t get another big time recruit, but I still really like the guys we got coming aboard for a year when CB should be down as a whole.

    How the heck did Kansas sneak back in there?!? You know Bill Self is telling Cal to NBA tales again.

    Maybe the kid just like expensive clothes and was looking for the clothing designer Perry Ellis.

    He also follows: Tyler Ulis, Anthony Davis, UK Basketball, Brandon Knight, John Wall, and Skal Lab…

      Exactly. Not sure why anyone is treating this as if it’s a huge deal, people follow random stuff on twitter all the time.

    For what it’s worth Myles Turner followed a bunch of the Kansas guys before he committed to Texas
