It has been both a weirdly busy and weirdly slow last couple weeks for Kentucky basketball.
In the “weirdly busy” category, the annual churn of players leaving Kentucky has picked up in recent days. Ashton Hagans and Tyrese Maxey have both announced their departures in recent days, with the assumption that Nick Richards isn’t far behind. Immanuel Quickley and EJ Montgomery are still both weighing their options, with the deadline coming in a couple weeks.
Yet in the “weirdly slow” category, there really hasn’t been all that much talk on who will replace those departures. Sure, there are the returns of Keion Brooks and Dontaie Allen, plus a loaded six man freshman class that has a ton of talent (BJ Boston and Terrence Clarke have the chance to be really special at UK next year).
