If you’d like to get to know the incoming freshman for UK’s 2013-2014 basketball season, then you’ve come to the right place. Thanks to Eric Lindsey over at CoachCal.com for putting these videos together. As of September 12th, 2013, all 9 of UK’s incoming freshman have a “Meet the Wildcats” segment. We’ll soon be creating another page for last season’s (2012-2013) “Meet the Wildcats” videos for anyone that didn’t get a chance to watch them before or would just like to rewatch them again.
As requested from the folks at CoachCal.com, the YouTube videos have been removed. We’ll have links to watch them via CoachCal.com soon.
The 2013-2014 UK Basketball Team
Videos are available here for Dominique Hawkins, Julius Randle, Dakari Johnson, Derek Willis, Marcus Lee, E.J. Floreal, Aaron Harrison, Andrew Harrison, and James Young — all of the incoming 2013-2014 UK basketball players. The videos are setup to automatically play in 720p without you having to adjust anything.
These videos give fans a unique insight into the personality and background stories of UK’s incoming freshman. We get to learn how Marcus Lee’s volleyball background led him to become the nation’s best shot blocker in high school, how the Harrison Twin’s father taught them about having a hard-work ethic and how they had no doubt where they wanted to attend college, how Dominique Hawkins felt when he received a scholarship to UK, how James Young had a brief stint playing football when he was younger, and much, much more! I’m not sure if any other college basketball fan base gets the opportunity to get a glimpse of their incoming players like this (I seriously, seriously doubt it), so it’s really awesome of Cal to give the crazy BBN stuff like this. Coach Calipari is always doing things like this for the Big Blue Nation, and we’ll be sure to post anything else he provides in the future. Enjoy!
