Only a few Wildcats opted to test the waters this season.

It appears as if the Kentucky Wildcats won’t have anymore players opt to test the NBA Draft waters. Jacob Toppin, Keion Brooks and Shaedon Sharpe are the only three players opting to go through the process and receive feedback.

With John Calipari saying that Jacob Toppin will be on the roster next season, it appears as if Keion Brooks and Shaedon Sharpe are the only two that will have decisions to make about turning pro.

I don’t expect either of them to return but that’s not based on anything concrete. Keion Brooks gave what seemed to be like a farewell speech after losing to St. Peter’s and, although he left his eligibility open, it certainly seems he’s going to stay in the draft.

Calipari will still add a few more pieces to the team, Antonio Reeves commiting is seemingly imminent, then will be ready to roll.
