Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: Dominique Hawkins Edition

Dominique Hawkins is not only drawing interest from NBA teams, but from the NFL as well.

Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation, and welcome to the Tuesday Morning Quickies.

Today’s lead story is from the Courier-Journal, who reports that NFL representatives showed up to meet Dominique Hawkins on Monday during his workout for the L.A. Lakers:

Multiple NFL teams have recently expressed interest, but, according to Feldhaus Jr., Hawkins has said he is not interested in football at this point. Instead he’s focused on his basketball career and is currently working out for NBA teams and exploring options overseas.

Interesting. Looks like Dominique is in the catbird seat in some ways, although a pro basketball career will be a huge challenge at this point. Still, he has all the necessary physical tools except hight to be an NBA player, and one Isaiah Thomas might scoff at that comment, rightfully.

I hope Dominique winds up on a roster, but if not, I heard somewhere that the NFL pays pretty well…
