News has been circling today that the Kentucky Wildcats could very likely be adding a player to the roster for the 2020-21 season tomorrow.

However, it was quickly revealed that is wasn’t Matt Haarms from Purdue, although Kentucky will have a shot at landing him in the future.

Now, it’s starting to look like Kentucky will be adding a guard from a top 25 team last season.

Kentucky just picked up a crystal ball prediction from recruiting analyst Chad Lykins to land Davion Mintz from the Creighton Bluejays.

Mintz didn’t play in the 2019-20 season due to a high ankle sprain that he suffered in the preseason, leading to him redshirting to keep that year of eligibility.

During the 2018-19 campaign, Mintz started all 35 games for Creighton and played 29 minutes a game while averaging 9.7 points, 3 assists, 3 rebounds, and 1.1 steals a game. He also 41% from the field (46% on 2-point FGs) and 34% from three. He was also regarded as one of the team’s best defenders.

It was looking like the Cats were going to be short-handed at the guard position next season, but if they do end up adding Mintz, he will provide some much-needed depth.

What are your thoughts on possibly adding Mintz?
