Twitter reactions to Olivier Sarr and Jacob Toppin being ruled eligible

Kentucky gets Sarr and Toppin eligible. Game time.

UK Athletics

Kentucky Wildcats fans got a bombshell of some news on Wednesday night after Olivier Sarr and Jacob Toppin were both declared immediately eligible. This news took the Wildcats from a potential Sweet 16/Elite Eight squad to a bonafide national championship contender.

It was a long wait for Sarr’s eligibility, as he committed to Kentucky back in early May. But now, the wait seems like it is well worth it. Sarr arguably had the best case in all of college basketball to transfer away from Wake Forest, but with the added bonus of receiving an extra year of eligibility, that more than likely pushed Sarr’s case even higher, as well as Toppin’s.

Sarr is expected to immediately make an impact on the floor for John Calipari and is expected to be one of the best big men in the country.

In the words of Olivier Sarr, “C’est Parti.”

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news.
