Evaluating The Significance Of Mark Pope's First Coaching Staff At Kentucky | 04.12.24

The roster construction process is off and running for new Kentucky head coach Mark Pope after his introductory press conference on Sunday. In the transfer portal market, it is expected and assumed that Pope will bring some BYU players with him to Lexington.

Kentucky is competing with Louisville and BYU for big Aly Khalifa. Wing Jaxson Robinson will also likely be a top target for the Wildcats. BYU guard Dallin Hall was another former Pope player in the transfer portal, but UK has not thrown its hat into the ring in this recruitment yet.

247 Sports national basketball analyst Travis Branham provided an update on Dallin Hall’s recruitment on Monday morning. Kentucky is currently not under consideration.

A return to BYU is possible. Former West Coast Conference coach Todd Golden is at Florida and could be a sneaky contender for the 6-foot-4 guard who started 30 games for BYU last season on .422/.359/.632 shooting splits. Hall averaged 9.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 5.1 assists in 29.3 minutes per game as a sophomore. Dallin Hall ranked fourth in the Big 12 in assist rate (30.1%) and played a key role in BYU’s top-five offense.

The development tells us that Kentucky has some higher-ranked targets on the board in the backcourt. Oklahoma State transfer Javon Small feels like a name to monitor very closely over the next few days. The former East Carolina transfer put up 15.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.4 assists, and shot 37.4 percent from three on 5.3 attempts per game.
