Kentucky just sent out the prospectus for the 2019-20 season, which includes a complete roster with each player’s heights and weights. The numbers are unofficial, but let’s take a look:

Again, the numbers are unofficial, but that’s not stopping me from diving right in. Some takeaways:

— Ashton Hagans is up to 198 lbs. from 190 last summer. Based on the pictures of him in summer workouts, that’s not surprising. Nick Richards and Immanuel Quickley both added three pounds, redshirt freshman Zan Payne added ten pounds, and EJ Montgomery’s numbers stayed the same.

— Going by Bucknell’s 2018-19 roster, Nate Sestina has dropped eleven pounds since last season, down to 234 from 245.

— All of the freshmen have put on weight compared to their numbers in 247 Sports’ recruiting database:

  • Tyrese Maxey: Up to 198 from 185 lbs.
  • Dontaie Allen: Up to 200 from 185 lbs.
  • Johnny Juzang: Up to 214 from 200 lbs.
  • Keion Brooks: Up to 205 from 185 lbs.
  • Kahlil Whitney: Up to 210 from 190 lbs.

After seeing this picture from last week, it’s clear Whitney’s 20 lbs. weight gain is all muscle:


— Freshman walk-on Riley Welch will wear No. 13.

I like my team.
