Kentucky basketball recruit Tai Wynyard arrives on campus


The rich get richer in Lexington. Let me rephrase that: John Calipari, the godfather of hoarding talent, grows his every increasing monopoly.

His Wildcats gladly welcomed another beastly four-star talent yesterday. 6’10” New Zealander Tai Wynyard.

Wynyard arrived early enough on campus to technically play this season. But the Cats are so good, he may not need to, and is thinking about red shirting instead, to add a year to his eligibility.

With Skal Labissiere, Marcus Lee and Alex Poythress all predicted to be NBA picks in next year’s draft, red shirting makes sense for Wynyard. He can grow comfortable with Kentucky life, get to know his teammates and strengthen the weaker facets of his game.

Here’s Wynyard’s highlight video from the 2015 Nike Hoop Summit.
