Twitter reacts to TyTy Washington keeping the good news rolling for Kentucky basketball

New, 7 comments

The good news keeps going for Kentucky basketball. More should be coming very soon.

And there you have it, 2021 five-star point guard TyTy Washington has committed to the Kentucky Wildcats and John Calipari, providing some resolution to the point guard issue for next issue.

Washington blew up after his decommitment from Creighton earlier this year, and Kentucky was one of the first ones to jump at the chance to get TyTy on their campus next season.

Washington is ranked anywhere from No. 21 to No. 12 and is considered one of the top-three point guards in the class, with ESPN, whom he announced his decision by, having him as their No. 12 ranked prospect and their No. 2 point guard. At this point, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if he turns out to be the best point guard to come out of this class.

This is a massive get for the Wildcats and you can very slowly start to feel the swagger return to John Calipari and the University of Kentucky basketball program. Having missing on every feasible big-name point guard last year, Calipari pulls a late rabbit out of his hat and lands one of the top-3 point guard’s in the country.

The addition of Orlando Antigua and Chin Coleman will only make Kentucky stronger. Welcome to Lexington, TyTy!

Here’s how Twitter reacted:

It sounds like Georgia Bulldogs transfer Sahvir Wheeler could also be joining Kentucky very soon.
