Today Kentucky Offered Kasey Hill a scholarship. He is a 2013 recruit, rated as number four point guard and a four star recruit. UK offering Kasey Hill scholarship
Lebron James will sponsor three Universities including UK! This is a sponsorship deal that will make Miami U, Ohio State, and Kentucky wear LBJ Jerseys. The design currently is unknown but i see this is as a positive for recruiting for UK as high school kids are star struck by Lebron James. UK sponsorship with LBJ
Michael Gilchrist legally changed his name to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to honor his uncle who died afters he signed with UK! I have to say this young man is honorable and becoming one of my favorite cats already.
The official Team was released! The team is athletic, tall, and most likely the most talented team Coach Cal team he has had at UK so far in his three years at UK. Kentucky Official Roster
Per Jerry Tipton UK actually stopped recruiting Rodney Purvis , this was due to the commitment of Ryan Harrow, UK pulled out of the recruitment. Purvis did say that UK said if something changes will let you know. UK seems confident in Ryan Harrow and the shooting guard recruits they are recruiting.
Yesterday UK offered Scholarships to TJ Warren and Mitch McGary. TJ is Mitch McGary teammate, maybe a package deal!
Shabazz Muhammad told reporters that UK is going to be his first official visit. That must bode well for UK to have the first visit!
Dajuan Coleman told reporters the two teams standing out the most were Syracuse and Kentucky! Also went on and said a visit will be planned to visit Kentucky!
Ricardo Ledo said UK is very high on his list and he will visit UK sometime soon!
Brandon Ashley had a lengthy talk with Coach Calipari and UK is in back in the mix for his commitment!
Coach Calipari went back to Indianapolis to see Perry Ellis for the fifth time in three days. He must be a major target for Coach Cal.
UK is turning up the heat on Alex Polythress on his recruitment, as he wants to visit UK in the near future!

Coach Calipari tells on a Radio Station in Arkansas about returning to the pros or not in this link. Coach Calipari Not Leaving UK for NBA!
He told CBSsports two schools have seperated themselves from the other schools. Syracuse and Kentucky are the two top schools on his list as he calls Syracuse 1 and Kentucky 1A.
With the Breaking News of NBA Owners locking out the Players with no agreement is in the near future. Starting Midnight tonight the lockout is official. The big question is how long is the lockout going to last? What will former Cats and former Cal players going to do? Will they become student assistants at UK?
Its another great Video by UKCAT8FAN, Josh became one of my favorite UK players and he be missed by me and many other UK fans. Good Luck Jorts in the NBA. Make us proud!
Coach Calipari signed a new Contract for 8 years 36.5 million dollars. Coach Cal and Kentucky AD Mitch Barnhart are the same age, have same amount of years left on the contract. Both have said they could retire at UK!
Enes Kanter was selected 3rd Overall Pick as Utah Jazz picked him. Brandon Knight was selected 8th Overall Pick as Detroit Pistons picked him. Surprising or not but in the 2nd round Josh (Jorts) Harrellson was selected by the New Orleans Hornets 45th overall pick and sense then has been traded to the New York Knicks for cash. Last but least DeAndre Liggins got drafted as well by the Orlando Magic 53rd Overall pick. I wish these former Cats a promising and great NBA career.
To Watch Live! Espn
With Cleveland not considering taking Enes Kanter as the 4th pick in the draft many experts expect the Utah Jazz pick between Former Cats Brandon Knight and Enes Kanter. But lets not forget about DeAndre Liggins and Josh Harrellson which i hope both of them get drafted as well. I think personally Utah Jazz take Brandon Knight and Washington Wizards take Enes Kanter. I go on and say in the 2nd Round DeAndre Liggins gets picked by the LA Lakers and Josh Harrellson gets picked as well in the 2nd round!
According to a source of zagsblog.com Andre Drummond could have narrowed his choices to UConn and UK as his finalist if he decides to go to college if not he will try to jump into the NBA Draft.
Brandon Ashley says he hasn't heard from UK for about 2 or 3 weeks and hasn't talked to Calipari.
From reports seen at the Father and Son camp the two who looked the best was Ryan Harrow and Anthony Davis. Ryan Harrow was throwing down dunks and blowing by the other players and Anthony Davis had some nice dunks, passes and several blocks.
Information found via Catsillustrated posters.
Twitted that he loves his team and the team will do everything in there power to win number 8.
Rodney Purvis is no longer considering UK and Louisville as he told reporters NBA Top 100 camp he is no longer considering UK and Louisville because of the recent commits of Ryan Harrow @ UK and Kevin Ware @ UL!

University of Kentucky acknowledges Calipari vacated wins and said it was an error on their part for celebration of his 500th win against Florida in Rupp. I personally agree with Calipari saying recently i don't care if my record is 0-0 this is about the players who won these games.
Coach Cal says UK wants an extension, I would guess UK would want a 2 year extension on the remaining 6 years left for about the same amount of money from the previous 2 years.
Rodney Purvis is considering Kentucky, NC State, Louisville, Duke, and Missouri. I would say NC State and Missouri are the two top teams at this moment and Kentucky is third.
Ricardo Ledo is considering Kentucky, Syracuse, Connecticut, Kansas and Providence, he wants to be number one player in the class. He has said he is high on the Cats.
The NCAA is telling UK the celebration of Calipari's 500th win against Florida is troubling with saying the count should not include the 42 vacated wins. I think with him and the players he has over 500 wins and i agree with Mike Wilbon on this and tell NCAA go to hell on this. No rules were broken. With the issues at Auburn and Ohio State i would think NCAA have more important things to do than be troubled by something that doesn't break any rules.
