With the 2022 postseason one to forget for the Kentucky Wildcats, along with a heavy amount of uncertainty surrounding the future of their core players, Big Blue Nation is grasping for any positive news surrounding their basketball team.
While top-25 recruit Skyy Clark decided Kentucky wasn’t the place for him and decommitted from the program, top-6 recruit Cason Wallace intends to wear Kentucky Blue and has been showing out at the McDonald’s All-American events.
With Clark’s decommitment and the likes of Shaedon Sharpe as well as TyTy Washington most likely leaving for the NBA, it’s comforting to see Wallace can handle the basketball and facilitate an offense on top of being arguably the best defender in high school basketball.

Chris Livingston, a fellow top-10 recruit who will join Wallace at Kentucky, is also in Chicago for the McDonald’s All-American events.

Kentucky can get and should be excited about Wallace and Livingston coming to Lexington this fall. A perfect world would have Oscar Tshiebwe and/or two more starters from this year’s roster joining them for another season.
But even if all of that unfolds how Big Blue Nation hopes, it’s still on head coach John Calipari to coach his team to postseason success. While having extremely talented players helps that case, we saw what happened to an extremely talented Kentucky team in Indianapolis just two weeks ago.
