Twitter reactions to Daimion Collins rocking Kentucky blue

Kentucky now has the No. 2 overall recruiting class in 2021.

Things got off to a rough start for UK today as the football Cats blew a chance to upset a top-five Georgia team.

Thankfully, things are ending on a very high note, as the basketball team landed a commitment from five-star forward Daimion Collins, who picked the Cats over the Texas Longhorns, Oklahoma Sooners, Kansas Jayhawks and Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Collins, a Texas native, was long believed to eventually become a Big 12 commitment, as Texas and Oklahoma were the clear-cut favorites for Rivals’ 10th-ranked recruit for much of the last year.

However, UK made a game-changing move in August with the hiring of former Longhorns assistant Jai Lucas, who is already making a big impact on the recruiting trail for UK. Collins was offered by UK just five days before the Lucas hire was made official, and the rest is history.

Kentucky now has a three-man 2021 class of Collins, four-star guard Nolan Hickman and four-star forward Bryce Hopkins.

Now, here is what Twitter had to say about the Cats’ big pickup.
