Twitter reactions to Davion Mintz and Chin Coleman news

Chin helped develop NCAA Point Guard of the Year Ayo Dosunmu, who confirmed the news of his former coach heading to Lexington.

Some long-awaited news finally broke today in regards to the future of the Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball program.

First to hit the timeline this morning was the silence finally being broken regarding senior guard Davion Mintz, as he announced his intentions to enter the NBA Draft while maintaining his college eligibility.

With Nolan Hickman being released from his letter of intent this past week, keeping Mintz in Lexington next season has become a bigger priority than was previously thought. Unfortunately, this means that this process could play out all the way until July 7th, which is the withdrawal deadline. Hopefully with the right feedback, we can expect a Mintz decision earlier than that.

Here are some highlights from this morning on Mintz.

It didn’t stay quiet for to long today, though. This afternoon, Chris Fisher of Cats Pause broke news that Ron “Chin” Coleman will be the other assistant coach to join John Calipari’s staff this offseason.

The big name around Big Blue Nation has been Orlando Antigua making his return to Kentucky, and rightfully so. The hire of Coleman, however, should be one fans get excited about as well.

Coleman has great ties both on the recruiting trail, as well as being known for his development of guards, all of which should be music to fans’ ears.

Here are some highlights of the good news Kentucky fans have been yearning for.
