Billy Richmond may not stick with Kentucky

Kentucky's newest recruit, Billy Richmond is another name to watch as a potential flip to Arkansas or some other school. He's only been committed to the Wildcats since February 7 and there is already smoke on social media about him asking out of his L.O.I.

In fact, Memphis-area basketball analyst Hitmen Hoops has already posted on X that Richmond has asked out of his L.O.I. Whether or not that's true is yet to be seen but where there's this type of smoke, there's often fire.

If Calipari can't lure Richmond to Arkansas, keep and eye on Memphis in this recruiting battle. Richmond's father played for the Tigers for a time and Memphis is his hometown.

This is a player that Cal would be wise to try to bring to Fayetteville, though. The lefty plays with a relentlessness that would make him a fan favorite at Arkansas.

He's an explosive athlete who thrives in the open floor. He is also capable of getting downhill when driving left and he finishes well at the rim.

A 5-star prospect according to the 247Sports composite rankings, he's the No. 24 player in the nation and No. 8 small forward in his class. Keep an eye on this dynamic playmaker because he could be a prime candidate to flip from Kentucky to either Arkansas or Memphis.
