Kentucky MBB ranked No. 9 in updated ESPN "Way-Too-Early" Top 25

Kentucky’s roster for 2021-22 has stayed the same ever since Davion Mintz announced on July 1 that he was returning to play a fifth season of college basketball. The Wildcats had the opportunity to add players such as five-star center Jalen Duren and Illinois transfer Kofi Cockburn, but ultimately missed out on both. Even still, the roster heading into 2021-22 is going to be incredibly deep and loaded with upperclassmen.

Over at ESPN, Jeff Borzello updated his “Way-Too-Early” Top 25 rankings for the upcoming season. In it, there was only one big mover, and that was the Memphis Tigers, who shot all the way up from unranked to No.
