The Kentucky Wildcats are once again going to be one of the top teams in the country during the 2020-21 season after bringing in the No. 1 overall recruiting class.
Back in the middle of May, BJ Boston, Terrence Clarke, and Devin Askew met up in Los Angeles to work out together and start building chemistry before their time in Lexington begins.
Now that more restrictions due to the coronavirus are being lifted, the future Cats are starting to team up for full court runs in L.A.
On Wednesday, the trio participated in a full-court run at The Sports Academy with a group that included former Wildcat Johnny Juzang and potential Kentucky target Peyton Watson, a five-star 2021 small forward ranked 16th nationally by Rivals.
BallIsLife released a video of the future Cats during that run and you can check it out below.
Back in May, Aaron Torres of Kentucky Sports Radio did an interview with former NBA veteran Darren Collison who has been working out with the future Cats and what he had to say should have the BBN excited.
Collison went on to give an overview of what he is seeing from each of the three guards.
“I see a player that his IQ, is one of the best that I’ve seen, at all levels,” Collison said of Askew.”
“[Boston] can put the ball on the floor. He can play in the pick and roll; he can shoot and create any shot that he wants to create. I think he’s going to be a really, really good NBA player down the road. I obviously think he’s going to be a really good college player in our system.”
“[Clarke is] probably the most athletic out of the group. If not one of the most athletic players in college basketball coming into this year.”
KSR also reported in May that the players are expected to start arriving on campus around June 22nd with the hopes of being able to stay in kind of a “bubble” in order to prevent exposure to the virus.
The start of the 2020-21 basketball season is approaching fast, but it is nothing but good news to see the trio of guards already getting a head start on building chemistry with each other.
As for Watson, the Long Beach (CA) product looks like a potential replacement for Boston/Clarke on the wing assuming those two are in the 2021 NBA Draft. Watson was primed for a big summer breakout before COVID-19 led to the cancellation of all recruiting events.
