Monday Headlines: Ron Holland Edition

Will Kentucky add another star recruit?


Incase you missed it, Ron Holland de-committed from the Texas Longhorns late last week. The top-5 recruit is now back on the “open market” and will have several teams interested.

Kentucky was one of Holland’s top teams before he committed to Texas and they just happen to be showing interest in landing him once again. Of course, the Wildcats will have some serious competition with Arkansas, Kansas, St. John’s, Georgetown and Kansas State all in the mix. But Kentucky basketball is the No. 1 recruiting program in the country and has one of the best classes ever coming in for the 2023 season. So, what are the odds they can land Holland?

Kentucky has lost several players from last year’s team to the NBA Draft or the transfer portal, so significant minutes are something Holland would be in line for at UK. He would also be able to play with close friend DJ Wagner.

UK assistant Chin Coleman has been the primary recruiter for Holland but Wagner is looked at as someone who is equally as valuable if Kentucky is going to land Holland.

So, what are the odds Kentucky can pull this one out? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
