This weekend was a big mix of both basketball and football excitement for the Kentucky sports program. Here’s everything that came out of this weekend:
Wandale Robinson cuts his list to 6, Kentucky included
Popular in-state 2019 recruit, nationally ranked 315th, RB Wandale Robinson cut his list to 6 and the Cats made the cut. Other teams that made the cut include; Alabama, Michigan, Purdue, Ohio State, and Nebraska. Wandale is an explosive back, and is actually listed as an all-purpose back which means he can play many different styles. There are a lot of big-time names on the list, but Wandale growing up in Frankfort definitely helps the Cats chances. Good luck to Robinson as he is about to begin his senior season!
The Peach Jam was full of future Wildcats
Some much talent at NIKE Peach Jam and in Augusta at the PIT so much that coach Cal from Kentucky Steve Alford from UCLA and Leonard Hamilton are at a 9 am game. #wethebestball swoosh pic.twitter.com/KIfMqvI4cJ

This weekend was the Nike EYBL finals at the Peach Jam in Atlanta Georgia, and a lot of future/potential Kentucky Basketball stars made their mark on the weekend. DJ Jeffries made the biggest impact as he had his best night in front of John Calipari. He was on the same team as potential Kentucky Wildcat and #1 player in the country, James Wiseman. Seeing all of these guys out there together has to get BBN pumped for what 2019 is going to bring.
Tyrese Maxey is on a mission
Ever since Tyrese committed to Kentucky in May, he has been busy helping Calipari recruit even more top talent for the 2019 class. This weekend he made sure to be in top talents ears like James Wiseman and Cole Anthony. Tyrese has been on fire ever since his commitment. Now that there’s no pressure on him, he’s able to hone in on his skills and showcase to every player what it could be like if they join him in Lexington. Let’s see who he can reel in!
