    Who else does UK add?

    A few players still in the mix. If Knight decides to stay in school I do not see Trevor Lacey becoming a Wildcat. Cal also seems to want another big awfully bad. Anderson, Simpson, God's Gift all still in the mix. If Liggins would for some reason decide to forego his senior season and assuming Knight and Jones leave, we may be looking at another six man rotation. Davis, Teague, Gilchrist, Wiltjer, Miller, Lamb. Maybe we see big improvement out of Stacey Poole or Jon Hood which would allow them more playing time. Otherwise we need to add another recruit. Thoughts?

    I'll go Trevor Lacey, Braeden Anderson and possible one more depending on who stays and who goes...

    I'm holding out hope that the staff will develop Eloy Vargas into a serviceable big man...

    I have one word in response to that possibility: JORTS.

    Not a chance. It's not often you see a turnaround like Jorts.

    And there wasn't a chance last year, either.

    You're right, but I'm fully expecting the staff to ride Vargas the entire offseason. They didn't have that type of time last year...

    I just don't feel Vargas even has room for improvement. His footwork is terrible, he seems to have a low basketball IQ, his hands are terrible, and hes not very athletic.

    Though I agree about Eloy he did have 4 rebounds in very limited time last night. Can't teach size.

    Jorts isn't athletic either.

    I could have said the same thing about Jorts before this season. Before this season the only thing Jorts did well was shoot the three when he was wide open. There was no reason at all to believe he could play so strong down in the post, like he did this year.
