WATCH: Get ready, Coach Cal. Tyler Ulis’ little brother can ball too…

Tyler Ulis was a fan favorite in his time at Kentucky, with some calling him the greatest point guard to ever suit up in blue and white. His second-to-none leadership combined with elite ball-handling, scoring, and passing ability made for the perfect John Calipari guard. And he did it all at 5-foot-9.

Now, Ulis’ not-so-little brother is making a name for himself in high school and the AAU circuit.

Ahron Ulis, a six-foot 2020 prospect out of Chicago, IL, is currently unranked by all recruiting services. But not for long.

As a sophomore playing varsity last season, Ulis averaged 14 points, four assists, three rebounds, and two steals per contest in just over 12 minutes per game. His PER-40 averages are just ridiculous, coming out to 46.7 points, 13.3 assists, and 10 rebounds a game.

Check out his impressive highlights below:

Obviously there’s a lot of work to be done, and we’re certainly a long way away from his recruitment really taking shape. That being said, could Coach Cal push to get the younger Ulis on the team for the 2020-21 season?

I sure hope so.

While we’re at it, let’s take a look at Tyler Ulis’ middle school highlights as a 5-foot-4 point guard…

That turned into this…

Make it happen.

      This site, and lots of people in comment sections. I tend to think there’s no way he is, but I have a hard time thinking of a better one!

      Great point. Hard to think of any better. I know some might say Wall or Wayne Turner but I dunno

    One of my all time favorites. Always remember that bloody eye scene against the “dirty birds”! Only MKG was as tough.

      He and MKG have been my favorite 2 players since Cal arrived. Both had so much heart.

    You forgot SEC Defensive POY, and POY. My favorite all-time UK player, over Issel. And you who didn’t see him have no idea how incredible Issel was.

    Whenever I think of Ulis, I think of the SC game where Cal got tossed. KP was on the sidelines but Ulis was in the drivers seat and they buried the Gamecocks.
