The Kentucky Wildcats have released the updated roster for the 2015-16 college basketball season.

The list includes each player's roster number for the upcoming season, as well as their class designation, which is notable for senior power forward Alex Poythress. After missing most of last year with a torn ACL, Poythress could get a medical redshirt and having one more season of eligibility in 2016-17 if he wants it.

That said, the hope is Poythress returns fully this upcoming season, has a great year and then gets selected in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Here's a look at the full roster released by UK Athletics:
