"When in anybody's lifetime with UK football have we seen HC's like Meyer and Saban wanting the recruits that our coaches have been on. I love our staff, we win and we are going up that SEC ladder."
"UK gets Reddish or Zion, Duke gets the other. Reddish is preferred by both, he is the next Kobe.
Zion is not as polished. Reddish has emerged as the next guy in recruiting circles. I would prefer Reddish. He is skilled and polished. Just what some have heard."
"Getting both Bamba and Diallo would put us damn near close to 2014-2015 IMO.
Not saying we go 38-0 obviously, because they won't be as experienced as that season, but they'll be almost as talented."
