Wildcat Quickies: De’Aaron Fox Edition

New, 16 comments

Kentucky offers De'Aaron Fox. Tennessee offers Jedrick Wills. Florida players arrested (SHOCKED FACE).

Ballislife South

The Kentucky Wildcats have  a new target in the Class of 2016, and it's five-star prospect De'Aaron Fox.

The 6-4, 170-pound point guard out of Cypress Lakes (TX) is rated the No. 4 overall prospect by 24/7 Sports and No. 9 player by Rivals.com. The homes-state Texas Longhorns look like the slight favorite right now, but Fox has made it no secret an offer from Kentucky would be a big deal. Back in April, Fox called UK, "every kid's dream school."

Your Quickies

Cornerback improvement required for expected 2015 success
There's no question that CB was one of, if not the biggest weakness of Kentucky last year. Improvement in that area will play a massive role in how well UK finishes this season and whether or not it's in a bowl game.

LB target Brock Miller visiting N.C. State and Virginia Tech this weekend
One of Kentucky's top remaining targets in 2016 is three-star LB Brock Miller. He's visiting a pair of ACC schools this weekend, one week after visiting Kentucky.

2015-16 Basketball Preview: Alex Poythress
The gang at Cats Illustrated take a look what UK fans should expect from forward Alex Poythress this coming season. The junior is technically a senior with this coming season being his fourth year at Kentucky. If the Cats are to get back to the Final Four, Poythress will play a major role in it.

Tennessee is latest scholarship offer for Jedrick Wills
One of the best high school prospects from Kentucky right now is Lafayette OL Jedrick Willis. Though he's a Class of 2017 prospect, Willis has already gotten a five-star rating and a top-25 ranking by some scouting services. Tennessee is the latest BCS program to offer Willis, who Mark Stoops will have his work cut out for him in getting a commitment from with other powers like Notre Dame and Alabama in pursuit.

Florida players cited for not paying food bill at bowling alley
A pair of Florida Gators have gotten into some mild offseason trouble after skipping out on paying a tab at a bowling alley. Running back Adam Lane and defensive tackle Caleb Brantley were part of a group that ran a tab up to $90 and skipped out on paying it. Neither player was arrested for the incident, and neither is expected to serve severe punishments from the local authorities or the new head coach Jim McElwain.

Texas to use two QBs in season opener at Notre Dame
One of the best Week 1 college football games will feature the Texas Longhorns taking on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The problem with the Horns is they don't look like they'll have their QB issues solved by then, which will lead to them playing both Tyrone Swoopes and Jerrod Heard vs. the Irish.
