#2 Player in the Nation (#1 Center)
Last Wednesday, ESPNís Jeff Goodman reported that Kentucky superstar freshman Skal Labissiere has not yet been cleared to play by the NCAA. The organization reportedly has concerns about his guardian Gerald Hamilton, who brought the center to the U.S. from Haiti. We havenít heard much since, but FOX Sports Australia basketball writer Olgun Uluc reports that one NBA executive doesnít think Labissiere will play this season.
Labissiere, the No. 2 player in the 2015 class, would be a huge loss for the ĎCats. Kentuckyís only other player over 6-foot-10 is freshman Isaac Humphries from Australia. Kentucky has been known for its towering interior defense in recent years, but it will look very different if Labissiere is forced to sit.
