Linebacker Jacquez Jones is back in a boot

Justin Hodges - Sea of Blue Hopefully this is just a precautionary measure. One of the Kentucky Wildcats’ defensive leaders and biggest returners for 2022 is having some issues with a nagging foot injury. Jacquez Jones took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a picture of his foot in a boot along with crutches. Jones missed the Cats’ bowl game against the Iowa Hawkeyes after he was seen wearing a boot throughout the week in Orlando. However, he was able to participate in all 15 practices this spring.

Some NBA scouts are skeptical of Shaedon Sharpe

Photo by Chris Schwegler/NBAE via Sharpe has consistently been mocked in the top-eight selections given his almost unlimited upside. It’s not easy to succeed at the NBA’s highest level, and many of the players that have reigned over the league these last several years have been top-ten picks. Think Kevin Durant or LeBron James for players that had talent that was impossible to pass on, unless you’re the Trail Blazers. The same could’ve been said about Shaedon Sharpe, who is an extremely athletic 6-foot-5 guard. He is the No. 3 player in the Class of 2021,...
