I'm late getting this news out because I've been on the road but here it is nevertheless. Former University of Florida forward Eloy Vargas is headed to the University of Kentucky.Â The 6-foot-11 Vargas visited UK this weekend and will have two years of eligibility remaining to play for the Wildcats. He will be eligible next season and was also considering Seattle, Arizona and North Carolina.Â âHe's a highly, highly skilled 6-foot-11 guy,â said Kenny Gillion, Vargas' former AAU coach. âA lot of schools rolled off of his because of his production at Florida. But a lot of people forget he was hurt during that time. He's dominated every since he came here from the Dominican.â
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walterâs Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
