Today on KSR: The 2019 Roster is Coming Together

This morning the Big Blue Nation is receiving clarity.  After spending a few weeks wondering what the 2018-19 Kentucky basketball roster will look like, the pieces are finally falling into place.

The greatest surprise was this morning’s addition.  E.J. Montgomery, the third-ranked power forward in the 2018 class, committed to Kentucky this morning over Duke following a Sunday in-home visit with John Calipari.  UK’s class is now considered the No. 2 recruiting class in America, and more importantly, Kentucky has some guaranteed depth in the frontcourt next year.

In the backcourt, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is expected to make his decision today.  The point guard came to Kentucky as a four-star prospect and will likely leave after one season as a lottery pick.

If SGA does what many expect and heads to the NBA, there’s somebody waiting to replace him.  Ashton Hagans, the No. 1 point guard in the 2019 class, is a heavy Kentucky lean that could reclassify and join the 2018 recruiting class very soon.

This week will be packed with decisions that will determine next year’s roster.  To make sure you stay in the loop, download the KSR app and turn on notifications to hear Drew’s meow whenever news breaks.

Tyler Herro’s Impressive Jordan Brand Game Performance

The future Kentucky shooting guard was solid in his first all star game.  Herro finished with 13 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists.  If you haven’t kept up with Jack Pilgrim’s spectacular work from New York City, you’re missing out.  If you’d prefer to be lazy, this clip will certainly help you understand what UK will have in the backcourt next year.

Bat Cats Win Another Series

A pair of back-to-back runs pushed Kentucky to a 10-5 win and a series victory over South Carolina.  Nick Mingione’s club is now 22-10 and tied for fifth in the SEC East with a 5-7 record in league play.

UK returns to action Wednesday with a mid-week road trip to Western Carolina.  They’ll stay on the road for a weekend series at Georgia.

Last Week of Football

Get your football fix in while you can. The Kentucky Wildcats will practice Tuesday and Thursday prior to Friday night’s Blue/White Game. We’ll have a pair of new podcasts to help you prepare, but until then, enjoy these highlights from Saturday’s scrimmage (especially Lynn Bowden’s).

Patrick Reed Wears the Green Jacket

Jordan Spieth shot an incredible 64, Rickie Fowler had a late surge but Patrick Reed was just too good this week at Augusta National.  Even without his usual Sunday red, the doughy 27-year old was just aggressive enough to shoot a -15 on the tournament and pick up his first career major.

Wrestlemania was Fine

For the first time, I watched Wrestlemania.  I did not know what exactly to expect, which is why I was surprised there were still two more matches to go at 11:30.  How can you have an event last that long?  It got too boring when they used the Raw women’s title for filler.  That, plus the anticlimactic A.J. Styles-Nokamora showdown soured what was an extremely entertaining night.

Ronda Rousey proved all the haters wrong with an exciting victory and The Undertaker got back to his ass-whooping ways.  Poor John Cena never stood chance against the tombstone.

    Rousey prove haters wrong? You do know that these fights are scripted right? I hear there’s a knockdown going between Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. Who ya got?

      I was thinking the same thing. 🙂 I saw someone posting about this. My response…”You do know it’s fake, right?”

      I live in Louisville and have been to that Kroger a ton over the years. It’s funny because they still have tons of UK stuff in there. I saw a huge Cal stand-up cutout once and thought: “UL could NEVER do this in Lexington.”
      They also had tons of ‘12 Championship items when we won it all.
      Don’t get me wrong, I throw up a little every time I go in there, but most of that stuff happened a little at a time. And of course, it’s right off campus.

    That tweet about Montgomery translates to “it’s a 5-star 5-star kind of morning.” A bit redundant…
