Big Blue Madness is finally here and will be a major night for everyone. Kentucky fans get their first opportunity to see this year’s team in Rupp Arena. The Kentucky players have their opportunity to dance and be themselves. Then you have head coach John Calipari, who is certainly enjoying this year’s annual kickoff event with his team but is also making sure the recruits that are watching know just how big the University of Kentucky does basketball.
Kentucky will have more than a handful of high profile recruits in attendance for Friday night’s events. Aaron Bradshaw, DJ Wagner, Justin Edwards and Reed Sheppard will represent the Class of 2023 while Ace Bailey, Ian Jackson, Karter Knox and Travis Perry are in the Class of 2024. Jasper Johnson (Class of 2025) will also be in attendance.
