    My research revealed there are a couple of options for “approved agents.”.
    Does anyone know what happens if a player signs and then returns to school? Does the contract remain in effect thus allowing said agent to collect a cut of any NIL money?

        Was involved in a pretty bad incident at a girls' basketball game this past season. I think it was middle school girls. Was not a good look at all for UK.

        IIRC he also got in a player's face or something during a game this past year. Just not a professional look for the program and it's probably good he moved on. That video of him at the basketball game was kinda pitiful.

          The in-game incident occurred at UT. Ziegler crashed into the end of the bench, then he and Rob had words. Rob looked like a real idiot, and frankly, I was surprised Cal didn’t cut ties right after the game.

          The youth basketball vid came out later, and boy was it a bad look.

            No idea. I suppose like other contracts it could be worded however both sides agree. My guess is it’s typically set up to apply to the player paying the agent IF they go pro 🤷‍♂️

              I had no clue about this but I just saw the video...you are right... not a good look

              • Kentucky is "heavily involved" with South Dakota State's Baylor Scheierman. He's the top transfer in the portal and is testing the NBA waters.

                Sixteen schools are on his list, including UK. Big, skilled guard who will very likely play in the NBA after college.

                  And Reeves is in a holding pattern till some things sort themselves out. Oregon is UK's main competition for him. But he's not a guarantee anymore

                    Weird.

                    I might send Cal a tweeter asking him if he plans to actually field a roster for the University of Kentucky men's basketball program or if we should just shift our allegiance over to the rifle team.

                      He would be the perfect replacement for Sharpe and give us the playmaker at 3 that we always seem to lack.

                      Let's hope Cal can reel him in. Apparently his agent is a big UK guy, so that can't hurt.

                      • Wheeler > Tsheibwe > Toppin > Wallace > Frederick > Livingston > Collins > Ware > Scheierman.

                        And then one more of Brooks, Sharpe, Reeves, or another portal option.

                        Sounds like a complete roster to me.

                            Scheierman and Fredrick are definitely that. Scheierman's shooting stats are crazy.

                              Wheeler dishing to those two with Oscar as a constant threat in the middle? Bruh.

                                You never know how a team is going to defend because usually that comes down to stuff like communication and work ethic, but last year's team clearly just collapsed defensively. I would hope if Fredrick and Schiereman are on the team that they can D up somebody. It can't be worse than we were at the end of last season.

                                Damion Collins and Jacob Toppin being able to play extended minutes should help us immensely.
