“Kentucky is loaded — again.”
Athlon Sports jumps on the Blue Blue hype train in its cover subhead.

Isaiah Briscoe, the cover subject, isn’t even guaranteed to start. Briscoe decided against entering the NBA draft after a freshman season in which he averaged 9.6 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. A 5-star point guard in 2015, he’s joined by five 5-star recruits in this year’s class. De’Aaron Fox, the No. 6 recruit nationally per 247, should challenge him for a spot in the back court.
Briscoe was not one of the three Wildcats in the first round of Chad Ford’s mock draft.
