The newest Kentucky Wildcat is fitting right into the culture of the Bluegrass State.

Saturday Wake Forest transfer Olivier Sarr posed with a massive bass that he caught while using a perfect caption: Big Bass Nation.

The post already earned him a fan in known bass fisher and former Kentucky linebacker Kash Daniel who tweeted at Sarr inviting him for a day of fishing whenever he arrives in Lexington.

Sarr will be seeking an instant eligibility wavier from the NCAA to play his senior year for the Wildcats during the 2020-21 season.

If he does not receive it, there’s a chance he never plays a game in Kentucky Blue as he’s said on record several times he will not sit next season and will play overseas for a year if he had to.

The 7-footer earned third team All-ACC honors last season after averaging 13.7 points with nine rebounds and 1.2 blocks.
