UK signees
Aaron Harrison: The Travis High shooting guard is averaging 30.0 points in 10 games since Dec. 7, when his brother Andrew was sidelined with an injury.
Andrew Harrison: UK’s future point guard has been hampered by a hamstring injury for the last three weeks, and his stats have suffered as a result.
Marcus Lee: Some eye-popping stats are being reported for Lee, who already has three games with 25 or more rebounds.
Derek Willis: The Bullitt East star had his best game of the season Saturday, scoring 30 points and hitting the game-winning three-pointer.

2013 targets
Aaron Gordon: He averaged 29.5 points and 16.5 rebounds in four games at the MaxPreps Holiday Classic after Christmas.
Dakari Johnson: The former (and perhaps future) Lexington resident has Montverde Academy out to a 12-0 record.
Julius Randle: Prestonwood Academy won its season opener, but is 3-9 since Randle went down with a broken foot.
Andrew Wiggins: The No. 1 prospect in high school basketball has led Huntington Prep to an undefeated season so far.

2014 commitment
Karl Towns: UK’s only commitment from the class of 2014 is averaging 16.7 points through six games.

  1. Looks like the future for the Cats is going to be in good hands. It was good to see Willis have an outstanding game b/c he is the forgotten recruit in the 2013 class so far. KY will be so loaded with perimeter players that can also take it to the hoop that the bigmen will have a much easier time at scoring themselves. I wouldnt be surprised to see Dakari Johnson in a KY blue uniform especially if WCS declares for the draft and perhaps even if he doesnt. Another 2013 recruit many think will be Wiggins but I for 1 am not sold on him coming to Lexington. but going to FSU instead. I think the better chance is Randle although some of the media pundiffs have Fla. nad Texas as the leaders.
