Rant No. 1
Since the decommitment of D.J. Jeffries, Kentucky did more than enough to fill that void picking up commitments from in state star Dontaie Allen and top-10 player, Kahlil Whitney.
As I mentioned in the previous “Random Rants of BBN” it’s been a frequent occurrence for Kentucky to have two guys at the end of the summer that are no brainers to commit to the Wildcats and boom, Allen and Whitney commit within a couple of days of one another towards the end of summer.
Kentucky also has Tyrese Maxey already in the fold.
The point guard news in terms of recruiting seems like it’s shaky at surface level with Jalen Lecque not including Kentucky in his final list and no mention of the Wildcats (yet, maybe) for the top ranked guard in the 2019 class, Cole Anthony.
Lecque should be looked at as a bullet dodged, his list of schools he’s considering suggests a strong inconsistency, and being a postgraduate student (5th year high school) he could go to take the Anfernee Simons route and have a quiet recruitment before ultimately deciding to enter the draft, so recruiting Lecque would’ve been a waste of time to Kentucky.
Anthony, on the other hand, is visiting seemingly every school in the country right now and legitimately has no favorite at the moment. Kentucky may need to make an official jump into the Anthony recruitment for this to become a more credible match.

Football is coming. I know it’s hard to get into before game one but I’m here to help you get those wheels in motion. The QB competition between Terry “Touchdown” Wilson and Gunnar Hoak is my favorite thing about this football team.
Wilson and Hoak are both fully capable of being not only the starting quarterback but also lead this team to at least 6 wins. Keep in mind, I said at least 6 wins, not that this is a 6-win team, as 8 wins this season is a very real possibility.
Vegas doesn’t even have Kentucky as a 6-win team as their over under is set at 5.5, so let’s prove Vegas wrong, the SEC wrong, and let’s cheer on these young Cats!
