Kentucky looks to three new prospects

After being spurned by C.J. Leslie and put on hold by Terrence Jones, Kentucky has its eyes on three new players who may be able to help out some next season. KSR takes a look at those three players.

After being spurned by C.J. Leslie and put on hold by Terrence Jones, Kentucky has its eyes on three new players who may be able to help out some next season. KSR takes a look at those three players.

Remi Dibo – One of the first names to materialize in the last week or so was Remi Dibo. Dibo played for Mountain State Academy (WV.). He's been to Kentucky previously on an unofficial visit. The 6-foot-8, 210-pound forward has offers from Duquesne, Drexel and St. Bonaventure. Dibo is known as a good outside shooter with a big body to bang with players his size. Dibo hasn't set a time for decision at this point.

Kadeem Jack – Jack originally intended to go to prep school after this season, but now things may have taken a turn for the better. A four-star prospect, Jack has now received offers from two big time programs: Kentucky and North Carolina. Jack is an explosive rebounder and shot-blocker. He's one of the top athletes in his class. And his 6-foot-9, 200-pound frame can put on muscle to allow him to mix it up in the post with bigger players. Jack is raw offensively, but can do enough to contribute when given time.

Kyle Cain – Cain committed to Rhode Island in October. Cain had a great season this year playing for The New Hampton School and requested to be released from his Letter-of-Intent. Cain is known as a player who can finish at the rim and also go hard after rebounds. Cain is expected to be recruited by his home-state Illinois, Alabama, Gonzaga, West Virginia and others in need of a forward late in the game.

With Kentucky in need of bodies, the Wildcats hope to bring in one of these prospects and possibly others who may be out there.
