Kentucky Wildcats Quickies: Sacha Killeya-Jones Commits Edition

The Kentucky Wildcats picked up a commitment from 2016 five-star big man Sacha Killeya-Jones on Wednesday.

Killeya-Jones became just the second commitment for '16, joining four-star forward Tai Wynyard. The rise of SK-J has been similar to that of Willie Cauley-Stein in how he blew up late in his high school to go from relative unknown to UK commitment. With a long, athletic frame combined with a dynamic skill set, Killeya-Jones has become a big mismatch on the floor, and his stock rose thanks to strong performances against some of the nation's best competition this spring and summer.

Now, he's a Wildcat.
