Mark Lyons Visits UK, Offered Scholarship

According to multiple sources Mark Lyons visited the Kentucky campus yesterday and was "apparently" offered a scholarship. Lyons is also rumored to be returning to the UK campus today. If Lyons is returning to the UK campus two days in a row we can certainly speculate that he will be a Wildcat very soon.

We have written here before, and also discussed our opinions of Lyons on our internet radioshow Kentucky Basketball Talk, that Lyons may be a huge risk. The brain-dead UK press is reporting that "we need help" in the back-court but that makes absolutely no sense as the roster is filled with guards.

Guards on UK roster as of today (Scholarship Players Only)
  1. Ryan Harrow
  2. Archie Goodwin
  3. Twany Beckham
  4. Jon Hood
  5. Jarrod Polson
If Kentucky signs Mark Lyons, and it certainly appears they will, then I think we can certainly expect a transfer or two. Beckham will be a senior in 2013, so we can expect him to stay put. Jon Hood will also be a senior but with his redshirt last year he will have a year of eligibility, if he transfers and sits out a year. I don't think Polson is going anywhere. I guess we will have to wait and see how this plays out.
