WAKE UP! Shai Alexander just committed to Kentucky

This week just got off to a great start. Moments ago, four-star guard Shai Alexander committed to Kentucky via Twitter, becoming the Cats’ third commit in the 2017 class:

Alexander hopped on Kentucky’s recruiting radar about a month ago when he decommitted from Florida. The Cats quickly showed interest in the Canada native and offered him a scholarship on Halloween. Alexander visited the following weekend and well, the rest is beautiful Kentucky basketball recruiting history.

Alexander will make it even more official at noon when he signs papers at his school. Welcome to the fam, Shai!

    Looks like he has some upside…and still growing so he may end up being a fairly skilled wing. Welcome aboard Shai!

    Yet another hyphenated last name. We had better still get Trae.
