Kentucky basketball’s annual Pro Day will be returning in October, tentatively scheduled for either the 9th or 10th of the month.

According to ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, Kentucky and Michigan are both expected to hold their annual Pro Day events the second weekend of October. The school has yet to confirm any official dates at this point.

Kentucky and Michigan join the likes of Vanderbilt, Tennessee State, Arkansas, Nebraska, Creighton, Memphis, and Auburn to host Pro Days in October.
