4PM Headlines: Dominique Hawkins Chooses The Kentucky Wildcats


If you haven’t heard already, Mr. Basketball in the state of Kentucky Dominique Hawkins chose the Kentucky Wildcats this morning.  Hawkins won the Gatorade State Player of the Year for Kentucky and chose UK over Purdue, Morehead State and Western Kentucky.

The preseason rankings for the 2013-2014 men’s basketball season have already been released, and as of now, the Kentucky Wildcats come in at #1 overall, with Louisville just behind at #2 overall.

Future Wildcat Andrew Harrison was quoted as saying that he thinks he could beat Michael Jordan in a game of one-on-one. No, not the 50 year-old current Michael Jordan, Harrison was referring to Jordan in his prime.

Former Kentucky Wildcat Enes Kanter is scheduled to have season ending surgery on his shoulder.  Kanter dislocated his shoulder earlier in the season and it is now confirmed that surgery will be the only way to repair the damage done.

Class of 2014 football 4-star commit Denzel Ware tweeted that he will be de-committing from the Kentucky Wildcats and re-opening his recruitment.  Most believe that he will soon commit to the Florida Gators, as he recently visited there.
