With rumors swirling that Kentucky Wildcats recruiting legend and current Texas Longhorns assistant coach Jai Lucas could finally be making his way to Lexington, that got the fans buzzing, especially after the departure of long-time assistant Kenny Payne.

Lucas is one of the more well-liked assistants in the country, as he was the main recruiter for top-10 recruit Greg Brown, who picked the Longhorns over Kentucky back in April.

If Calipari can steal Lucas away from Texas, it would be a major win, and Kentucky would have done their best to fill the massive shoes left by Kenny Payne leaving for the Knicks.

Now, let’s see what social media had to say regarding the Lucas rumors:
