The Sources Say Podcast E1: Daishen Nix commits to UCLA, the latest on Jalen Green, Josh Christopher, and JJ Traynor

The Sources Say Podcast is finally here!

In their debut episode, KSR’s Jack Pilgrim is joined by Jake Weingarten and Travis Graf of Cats Illustrated to break down all things Kentucky basketball recruiting.

The trio of recruiting insiders discuss:

What is the latest with 2020 five-star point guard Daishen Nix?

(NOTE: This podcast was recorded prior to Nix’s commitment to UCLA on Tuesday afternoon. Pilgrim, Weingarten, and Graf jump back on at the end of the show to discuss the big news)

  • Breaking down Nix’s game… Is he the best passer in high school basketball?
  • Their thoughts on Kentucky not extending an offer yet
  • Some new scoop on Nix that could affect Kentucky’s future roster
  • Why Nix’s camp was frustrated with UK

Breaking down Jalen Green’s game

  • Huge room to grow, high ceiling. Naturally gifted, supreme athletic. Can be a legitimate future NBA superstar
  • From his camp: quite a comparison to some former UK players in the NBA
  • Will he make it to a college campus?
  • How they would handicap his recruitment?
  • Has RJ Hampton’s decision to play overseas changed the mindset of these high school kids’ decisions?
  • Does the UK coaching staff like the idea of top recruits coming together on an official visit?

Breaking down Josh Christopher’s game

  • Pilgrim is extremely high on Christopher… Could he be even better than Green?
  • Can he run the point guard position?
  • Comparison to another former John Calipari star
  • What a potential future UK roster could look like
  • A fun Jalen Green vs. Josh Christopher matchup Pilgrim observed at Peach Jam

The breakout star of the summer is Bardstown’s own JJ Traynor

  • What do we need to know about his recruitment?
  • What Traynor’s high school coach told KSR about his game

And to close the show, the Sources Say hosts scramble to add in a new segment with Daishen Nix’s abrupt commitment to UCLA on Tuesday afternoon.

  • What does this decision mean for Kentucky?
  • Should we be worried about UK putting all their eggs in one basket with Green and Christopher?
