Good morning, folks!

It was a big day for the Kentucky Wildcats football program as Mark Stoops and co. landed two commitments. Three star wide receiver Jordan Watkins committed right after three star offensive lineman Joshua Jones committed.

Watkins is a Louisville native that attended Butler high school and Jones is from Alabama. Both players had impressive offer sheets. Jones had offers from Florida State, among others, and Watkins held an offer from Louisville.

Now the hard part is keeping both players. Football commitments are flimsy and it’s regular practice for kids to decommit not long after a commitment. But my gut tells me UK keeps both guys.

Tweets of the Day

Coach Stoops not very subtle about expecting more players to commit this weekend.

A very cool event and it looked like a huge success.

A lot of people are making a mountain out of a mole hill over this comment. I mean, what’s he supposed to say?

I used to really like Jay Bilas but anymore he comes across as pompous and condescending.


Kerry Blackshear could make decision today | All for Tennessee- After all of the momentum seemingly shift towards UK, Tennessee picked up steam throughout the day on Saturday and now they’re the perceived favorites. Although I don’t think anyone knows what he’s doing.

Camron Fletcher received offer from UK | KSR- The four star forward is picking up steam in his recruitment.

Which basketball Cats will be drafted next year? | Courier-Journal- Tyrese Maxey is the one Cat that is firmly in the lottery as of now but obviously a lot can change.

Aaron Harrison to play summer league with Celtics | Cats Pause- Harrison has struggled sticking with NBA franchises throughout his career. Hopefully this opportunity with the Celtics will be successful.

UConn to the Big East? | Saturdays Down South- The UConn Huskies may be moving back to the Big East. But since the Big East doesn’t have football, what will the Huskies do about that?

Alvin Gentry takes shot at Anthony Davis | CBS- Don’t expect a cordial meeting between the Pelicans brass and AD anytime soon.

WCS on the move? | ESPN- Willie Cauley-Stein’s agent feels like it’s time for his client to move out of Sacramento and I can’t say I blame him.
