Wildcat Quickies: Early Signing Period Edition

New, 36 comments

The early signing period starts, Kentucky football moves on from mistakes and more.

NCAA Basketball: Asbury at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The early signing period for college basketball kicks off today, and it’s kind of a huge deal for Kentucky. It’s big because the Cats do not have a single commit to their 2017 class yet, and they need about seven. This isn’t normal for the Cats, as they usually already have commits. Head Coach John Calipari already had Sacha Killeya-Jones and Wenyen Gabriel committed before the early signing period last year, so he enters this year’s early period with some ground to make up. The good news is, several of Cal’s top targets are deciding in the early period, which means the Cats could come out in even better shape than they were last year.
