    We are the United Nations of college basketball: Tai, Jamal, Skal, and this kid.

    I can hear the calls already : why isn’t Humphries playing more?

    This is exactly what UK needs!!!! The 5 spot was pretty much Skal by himself (5 fouls……), but with this kid, the backup for when the whistle is a little sensitive will be there.

    We can always go small ball with our guards, but this allows UK to do so much more.

    Please note that Australia met Canada in the U-17 FIBA in May 2014. Canada won 84-75 but Humphries led his team with 41 points and Murray got 25. GO CATS BIG TIME?

    Looks like an immediate replacement for Dakari, except with maybe better vision and touch?

    Is he ‘legal’ or will this be another Enes Kanter situation? Either way, 7 footer playing or practicing will only make the team better. Hope he’s in shape, can dominate, and run the floor like a guard.

    If this is the possible big man Matt has been hinting about, he is a real insider who can keep a secret.

    This could be a replacement for Skal…word is he won’t be eligible.

    This kid is a consensus top 50 kid in a historically LOADED 2016 class!! I wonder what he would rank in the much weaker 2015 class!? Great late pick up by Cal!!

    Kid looks crafty, not very athletic. Worried how he will do against athletic bigs

    People who think there isn’t at least a chance Skal will be ineligible are kidding themselves. Kid did nothing wrong but his handler is a huge idiot and scumbag.

    Totally agree with Don James’ comment. Great information, Don. Keep doing that research! Maybe Matt Jones will hire you!

      Does’nt surprise me one bit .Cal is nothing more than smoke and mirrors

      let’s be honest as great of a salesman recruiter Cal is he doe’s not develop players. I’m sorry he does not get any credit whatsoever about Rose , Tyreke and the list goes on of already made players. The twins came to UK with can’t miss NBA hype and three years later . We see the results and no i’m not a troll sometimes you have to be honest with what you see rather than feel in the heart. And the eyes don’t lie

      Timberwolves will pick Okafor they need fire power plus they have defensive front court guys already.

      Here we go with this over hyped Fb crap .. Stop the Flordia talk we are not and what in your ignorant minds think we have arrived to beat the Gators yet. Grease the goal post yell you are right . Those things do get a bit rusty without touchdowns from the home team going threw em.

      Find it quite strange how all ksr does is talk about Louisville and thug team. Well all the serious criminal activity has been coming from Stoops troops. Hmmm Matt !

      This is the year we win the East , and looking at the players and the way Alabama played last year and the coaching hires and talent . I don’t see us losing in the Sec championship game to Alabama Saban said he feared UK more than any other team from the east.

      Matt keeps up the fb recruiting drama, because we will constantly like today live on this propaganda made up hype site, putting money in his pockets. Have to give Matt credit for the business savy, of taking advantage of no life having 40-60 something uk idiots

    I dunno, I just don’t see it. He looks like a 7 foot below the rim player. I thought the dude from Greece that Cal passed up on a few weeks back was better. He’ll probably get his 10 min a game, will be there a few years.
