Yesterday IA Elites put out a 6:43 mixtape of 2014-2015 UK committed PG Tyler Ulis. Whether or not you’ve seen other videos of Ulis, this one best showcases his all-around skills on the court, so it’s definitely worth watching.
In case you haven’t heard much about him, Tyler Ulis is a 5’9″ PG (he was 5’8″ when Cal recruited him) from Marian Catholic High School. His hometown is Matteson, Illinois. It’s been reported that right after Ulis committed to UK that he was in contact with several other UK recruits–he was especially in the ear of Devin Booker, who has since committed to the Kentucky Wildcats.
Some analysts have said that Ulis is one of the best passing point guards coming out of high school in several years and that he is one of the most college ready players in high school. I’ve read that many people are worried about his height, and I think this is mostly because people are concerned that we might have a Ryan Harrow 2.0, but several experts have said they think he will be a great fit for UK and will surprise many people. I for one cannot wait for Tyler to get on campus and run next year’s basketball team.
You can watch the video below and decide for yourself.
So what do you guys think? Will Tyler Ulis be a good fit for UK, or do you think he is too small to thrive as a John Calipari point guard?
