Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Today on KSR: Yahtzee SZN

It was quite a busy night in the Bluegrass for the Kentucky football team.  The Cats picked up not one, but two commitments for Mark Stoops’ defense.

The first of the night came from a Jay Ward, a three-star cornerback who chose UK over West Virginia, UCF, Iowa State and others.  The third commitment from the state of Georgia in the 2019 recruiting class, Rich Brooks’ old recruiting stomping grounds are bringing elite athletes back to the Commonwealth.  Ward attends Colquitt County High School, the former home of running back Sihiem King, and is coached by Rush Probst, the man who became famous leading Hoover High on MTV’s “Two a Days.”

Speaking of Hoover High, that’s where Kentucky (kinda) found the second commitment of the night.  Defensive lineman Taures Payne completed high school football in Hoover before transferring to Northwest Mississippi C.C.  A 6’4″ 265-pound defensive lineman from Hoover and a Mississippi JUCO is all you need to know that he will be a stud (because Miss. JUCO defensive linemen are the best and most reliable recruits from the JUCO ranks).

The Cats’ 2019 football class now features ten commitments.  That number should continue to grow in the coming weeks.

Relive Draft Night

The dust is still settling after a wild and crazy NBA Draft.  Wenyen found a Summer League home in Sacramento, Kevin Knox was introduced to the New York media, Jarred Vanderbilt was riding a scooter in Denver and much more.

One of Cal’s Best is in Town

Kentucky Wildcats never hesitate to return to reunite with their coaches on UK’s campus.  That rule is not exclusive to UK players.  Dejuan Wagner, Calipari’s first “one and done” who averaged 20 points per game at Memphis, is in Lexington this weekend for Cal’s Father-Son Camp.


A Name from UofL’s Past Resurfaces

And no, it’s actually not a scandalous woman.  Remember Akoy Agau?  He was a forward at the end of Rick Pitino’s bench four years ago that opted to transfer to Georgetown.  After a few years there and at SMU, he is returning to UofL as a grad transfer to play for Chris Mack.  There are unorthodox college basketball paths, and then there’s this.

Who Won, Skip or Skip?

Embrace Debate.

    Would be good to see the commitment stories on both football and football recruiting pages. I could only find one story in different files. Hope you take it as more a suggestion than a complaint. Fine line nowadays with people getting butthurt like a chocolate Easter rabbit. Ty.
