Answer to Question of the Day

We received a great response —  point by point I might add — to yesterday’s question of the day.  The answers came from Gray over at  Oh, and I especially loved the answer to No. 6. 

Here they all are:

1. No big deal about not having walk-ons although Mark Krebs is slated to return, maybe with a scholarship.

 2. I wrote the coaching staff and got an invitation to walk-on. Cameron Mills wrote that after getting a scholarship offer from Georgia and new SUV from his dad, his dad talked Coach Pitino into allowing him to walk-on.

 3. Walk-ons have to be eligible, of course. Some have played significant minutes.

 4. Mills got a scholarship by his junior year.

 5. Mills was a walk-on turned shooting star his junior and senior years on scholarship. Ravi Moss contributed significantly as a walk-on. Mark Coury started as a PF but played sparingly for Gillispie. Marquis Estill served as a walk-on for one season due to a numbers crunch.

 6. Mills claimed his dad got a bill for $8 every time he pulled a donut off the buffet line. 

C.J. Henry was a walk-on at Memphis who did not play his freshman season for Coach Calipari. As he was in the Yankee Minor League he enjoyed a nice signing bonus. Henry is now at Kansas with his brother Xavier.

Oh, and one last thing — A special thanks to John Clay over at the Lexington-Herald leader for linking to our blog’s Question of the Day.
