Good morning Big Blue Nation.
Apologies for my absence around the site lately as I have been out of town for the last week or so. In fact I’m still out of town as I write these quickies. But instead of being at a fishing resort in Minnesota like I had been, I am in my Mother in Law’s in Chicago.
I’ve been out of the loop for a bit and was trying to find some content for the Quickies when I came across this interesting article from the Lexington Herald Leader.
Not surprisingly, John Wall is ranked number one on the list. Wall becoming a Kentucky Wildcat signified the start of Calipari’s recruiting dominance and a sea change for the program.
The swagger of John Wall and the national spotlight he brought to Lexington was something we haven’t seen out of a recruit since the Rick Pitino days.

Justin Rigg - Kentucky
2019 Breakout Watch ❗❗❗
- Rigg is a player who has a chance to make a name for himself this season. He only has 7 catches for 85 yards in his career but with CJ Conrad now gone he should step up as the TE1 in the Wildcats Offense. pic.twitter.com/fBafgEUnEC
Vince Marrow is very high on Justin Rigg.
Pinning this to my timeline got respect to gain https://t.co/3wMitR4a4Z— Brandin Echols (@matayo_echols) July 21, 2019
