UK recruits speak about visit
December 7, 2011By Matt McCarthy of KentuckySports.co
The Kentucky-North Carolina match up brought a packed house to Rupp Arena, among some of the guests included former Cats like John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, Big Blue Nation favorite Ashley Judd and even a Tracy McGrady sighting. But it wasn't just the older folks in the house but some of the top high school recruits were in attendance as well.
Andrew Wiggins and Xavier Rathan-Mayes, who are teammates from Huntington Prep in West Virginia took time out of their busy schedule to catch the game and from the quotes, they both seemed to enjoy the time in Lex.
Xavier Rathan-Mayes Quotes:
"It was great! I had a great time. "I loved everything. The fans, the coaching, everything was awesome."
Also in attendance to see UK beat UNC for the second straight game was 2013 forward Derek Willis out of Bullitt East High School here in the Louisville metro area, and again he seemed as impressed as Rathan Mayes did.
"It was a really fun game and visit. Everything was exciting, and the atmosphere was great. I definitely enjoyed myself"
So a couple of recruiting notes to get you through Wednesday as we all prepare for the Indiana game on Saturday. Go Cats!
