Blue Chips Full Court Press – Week of 05.30.22

Welcome to the BBN K.T. Turner!

Today it was announced that John Calipari has his man for the third assistant spot on Kentucky’s staff. K.T. Turner – associate head coach at Oklahoma (formerly from Texas and SMU) – will be the man. Turner is known in basketball circles as an absolute guru in player development. According to many, he could be the best player development coach in Cal’s entire UK tenure. This is the perfect hire for this year’s team and for the future of Kentucky basketball moving forward.

Rob Dillingham Sets Decision Date

The best ball handler in the 2023 Class Rob Dillingham aka “Robwitdashifts” has set his college decision date for June 24th. Rob is the consensus #1 PG in the class, and all signs are pointing towards Kentucky. Rob has been described as the perfect modern Point Guard – crafty with the ball in his hands, able to create for his teammates, but also being an extreme scoring threat. This past weekend on the EYBL Circuit, Dillingham averaged 22.4 points per game shooting 44.8% from 3PT Range on 5.8 attempts per game. Rob joining Reed Sheppard in the 2023 back-court would be the perfect duo to get the ball rolling on this class.
