From time to time, I like to make sure that you don’t miss some of the stories I have posted on lex18.com and this week has really been a busy week.

Alabama junior John Petty, the state’s Mr. Basketball, has been a UK fan since watching John Wall and Eric Bledsoe play. His coach is also a Kentucky basketball fan. He was the first player in the 2017 recruiting class offered by Calipari.

Earlier in the week I wrote about Tubby Smith’s new job at Memphis with input from Sporting News columnist Mike DeCourcy and ESPN analyst Dick Vitale. I also suggested it was a good chance for UK to schedule Memphis and honor Tubby Smith.

Finally, I had a great time writing about UK offensive lineman commit Landon Young of Lafayette and his reaction to winning the Wah Wah Jones Award given to the state’s best all-around athlete.
