How do you feel about current projection of Kentucky’s 2021-22 roster?

Kentucky’s roster is taking shape but still has several spots to finalize.

NCAA Basketball: Louisiana State at Kentucky Arden Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball 2021-22 roster is nearing completion as several NBA Draft decisions have been made, one player transferred out, three high school seniors signed, and two transfers are on board.

What remains to be seen is the futures of Davion Mintz and Keion Brooks, whether or not Isaiah Jackson will return for a sophomore season after he tests the NBA Draft waters, and if the Cats will add another transfer, and perhaps another potential high school prospect in TyTy Washington.

As of now, the UK depth chart currently looks like this:

Point Guard

  • Nolan Hickman (Incoming Freshman)

Shooting Guard

  • Dontaie Allen (Redshirt Sophomore)

Small Forward

  • Kellan Grady (Graduate Transfer, Davidson)

Power Forward

  • Jacob Toppin (Junior)
  • Bryce Hopkins (Incoming Freshman)
  • Lance Ware (Sophomore)


  • Oscar Tshiebwe (Redshirt Sophomore transfer from West Virginia)
  • Damion Collins (Incoming Freshman)

Justin Rowland of Rivals offered his own roster prediction with potential additions via the transfer market, high school recruitment, and potential returns of Mintz and Brooks.

Given these possibilities, how do you feel about the current construction of the 2021-22 Wildcats?
