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

Welcome TJ Walker to the KSR Family

Today in an exciting day for Kentucky Sports Radio as we add an integral piece to our ever-growing family. Join me in welcoming TJ Walker as our newest full-time writer. TJ, formerly of Rivals, will serve as KSR’s recruiting analyst.

The recruiting beat is by far the most difficult to cover, and to be honest, KSR hasn’t done it properly in years. That ends today. After seven years with Rivals, TJ has cultivated a network of sources, as well as vital relationships with coaches, recruits, and their families. No one covers Kentucky basketball recruiting better than TJ and adding him is a huge step for us. In addition to writing on the site, TJ will do a weekly recruiting podcast and assist us on game coverage. KSR was already the best site for UK Sports coverage on the internet, and with his inside knowledge, we become even stronger.

TJ isn’t a stranger to the KSR family. A few years ago, he joined Nick Roush on the Kentucky Thrones Radio podcast, and the two now have their own radio show on Big X Sports Radio in Louisville. We’re thrilled to have him on board, and I know you’ll join me in welcoming him to the family.

    Mrs. T is right about the recruiting coverage here and elsewhere. Let’s hope the new guy doesn’t keep talking about the echo chamber that is the Crystal Ball and actually tells us something about the reliability of his sources with attributions, such as a source close to the family, close to the coaching staff, close to the player, with personal knowledge, etc. I hate when people like Matt say they’re “hearing” something and leave us to speculate what the hell he means by that.

    I cannot disagree with Megan more. You can divulge some sources, but others must be kept confidential. I could care less to know where the source comes from. All I care about is if it is reliable.
