Kentucky Wildcats Quickies: Bam Adebayo Edition

Playmaker Mixtapes

The Kentucky Wildcats will be focusing more on recruiting this weekend on both the gridiron and the hardwood.

There won't be a bigger recruit either staff meets with than five-star big man Edrice 'Bam' Adebayo, who is taking his official to UK this weekend. A 6-9, 232-pound forward, Bam is ranked as the No. 7-overall prospect on Rivals and No. 6 on ESPN. He hails from Northside High School in Pinetown (N.C.) who John Calipari offered back in July and has visited twice during the fall recruiting period.

If nothing else, how cool would it be to hear Tom Leach yelling "Bam!" every time Bad scored?
