Kentucky Wildcats Quickies: De'Aaron Fox Decision Edition

Get the basketball Yahtzee dice ready...

The Kentucky Wildcats will likely add one of the top players in 2016 class today in the form of De'Aaron Fox.

A five-star point guard out of Texas, Fox is ranked as one of the five-best '16 prospects by most recruiting services. He's also possibly the next great one-and-done guard that John Calipari coaches. Fox would also join Sacha Killeya-Jones and Wenyen Gabriel to help form what's shaping up to be one of, if not the top recruiting class.

Or as we call it, a normal year in Kentucky.
