Quickies: Roster Uncertainty Edition

Kentucky faces a lot of unanswered questions about next year’s roster.

NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Arkansas Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

As is the case every year for Kentucky in the John Calipari era, there’s a lot of roster turnover forthcoming. This year’s roster turnover still features uncertainty. While Kevin Knox, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Hamidou Diallo are out, there’s still the case of Wenyen Gabriel testing the waters and Quade Green possibly transferring.

There’s also the possibility of Kentucky having a massive haul of guards next year, depending on whether or not Ashton Hagans reclassifies, and whether or not Tyrese Maxey commits to Kentucky and reclassifies as well.

There might be more question marks this year than usual for Calipari.
