COVID-19 has put restraint on our jobs, social lives, students’ education and so much more over the course of the last four months. As the flexibility and limitations of our daily routines have ping-ponged on a daily basis, there’s one in-particular player for the Kentucky Wildcats that’s been held out of action completely.

Freshman forward Isaiah Jackson is reportedly 13 days late for his arrival at UK. Kentucky Sports Radio revealed he was originally scheduled to arrive on July 4th weekend, but has yet to be logged by UK Athletics.

On Thursday, KSR confirmed Jackson hasn’t yet made his appearance in Lexington but is expected to do so this weekend. While players haven’t exactly been able to practice as consistent/hard as head coach John Calipari would have liked, the Wildcats’ coach knows as much as anyone that minimizing social exposure has been the right call.

Nonetheless, Calipari will reportedly be able to see and coach his players starting Monday, July 20th. Ironically just in time for Jackson’s arrival this weekend. No one has been made aware of why Jackson had a two-week delay, but regardless the young talent will indeed be in Lexington and ready to go when Calipari begins to work with the team.
