    Kevin Knox would fit right in, UK needs a Guard that can shoot and work off the ball. I think he heads to UNC/Duke but it would be nice to pull him in.

    Thought he was listed as a SF?

    Kevin Knox is a 6-8 small forward. Jared Vanderbilt is listed above as a PF, but despite being 6-8 he is a small forward was well.

    Hurt, name two other teams that have gone as far as UK's teams the past 8 years?

    1 NC
    2 National Title games,
    I believe 4 final fours
    7 Elite Eights

    Other programs would have love to be able to say they have done that in the past 8 years. I am interested in hearing your reasoning for why it has hurt UK, but I know that it will be the most ridiculous response I have ever heard.

    Agree, UK needs to find another combo guard, or talk Briscoe into staying. I think we see Wynyard and possibly SKJ transfer, which will open up a couple more scholarships. One for Bamba, and then try and get another guard to commit.

    I thought he was being projected as a #2 in college, if not my bad. UK will need one of them to be able to play at least some #2 guard...if Knox were to come.

    Plenty of room to sign one kid from Kentucky.

    Aren't most of the top Kentucky Kids already signed at other schools? Is there a D1 kid out there that's unsigned or uncommitted?

    Dillion Pulliam is already on the team from Kentucky, in case you didn't know.

    Why, if UK is signing a bunch of KY kids they are not going to make final fours.

    I don't think so, but I have been wrong before.

    Big difference between thinking you are a wing and actually being a wing. Vanderbilt does not have the skill set to be a high level small forward.

    Now, the same could be said for Trey Lyles and Cal used him at the 3 a lot.

    My guess is he is used more as a 4, but will back up Diallo some at the 3...
