Physical post play was lacking at Kentucky last year, though establishing an inside presence shouldn’t be an issue this season.
The Wildcats are tall, long and athletic once again, and this year the big guys appear ready to mix it up in the paint.
But Wildcats coach John Calipari shot out his annual caution on Thursday, warning everyone not to expect too much too soon from his latest collection of highly prized recruits.
Edrice “Bam” Adebayo and Sacha Killeya-Jones, both 6-foot-10, and 6-9 forward Wenyen Gabriel are part of Kentucky’s six-man freshman class that includes 6-3 guards De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk. Calipari’s son, 6-0 Brad, is a walk-on.
