Barion Brown expected to join Kentucky this summer

Andrew Nelles / The Tennessean via Imagn Content Services, LLC Brown comes in as a top-100 recruit and another game-changing wideout. A weakness for the Kentucky Wildcats for several seasons has been the lack of depth at the wide receiver, however, the most recent recruiting class is looking to change that. After losing their top three receiving options from last season, and the 3,000 yards of offensive production that they were responsible, the Wildcats will bring in seven total wide receivers (or athletes that have played WR) from a combination of the transfer portal...

Per Joe Tipton of On3, Edwards is down to Kentucky, Auburn, Tennessee, Villanova, Maryland, Kansas, and the G-League. Tipton adds that a decision is expected to come this fall, so there’s still a ways to go in this recruitment. Kentucky was viewed as the favorite for quite some time, with the Wildcats coaching staff going all-in during an in-home visit with Edwards earlier in the...

Jalen Reed drawing interest from Kentucky

Pro Skills Basketball Reed is a late bloomer but is already projected as a future NBA Draft pick. The Kentucky Wildcats have been a hotbed for top-tier recruits over the past decade, but as with players like Chris Livingston and Cason Wallace, they’ll also bring players in with long-term development in mind. That could be the case with Jalen Reed, a 4-star recruit ranked 45th overall in 2022 and the seventh-best power forward in the nation via On3. Last November, Reed signed with the Florida Gators. Given how the season ended for the Gators, including the loss of head...

Wildcat signees given little respect in ESPN’s final 2022 recruit rankings

Photo by Stacy Revere/ These rankings are quite comical. ESPN’s final rankings for the 2022 recruiting class were just released, and while both of the Kentucky Wildcats signees were ranked in the top 20, one questionably dropped a number of spots. Chris Livingston stayed at the 12th spot, which is on par with his rankings by other services, though he is in the top 10 at 247 Sports and Rivals. As for Cason Wallace, he dropped from 14th to 20th, which is just blasphemous when you consider his lowest ranking according to any other service is sixth. ESPN’s rankings have...
