Operation Win

UK will be hosting several top high school coaches today and tomorrow for their coaches clinic. Among the programs that will be in attendance are Stephenson High School (GA), Fern Creek High School (KY), Ballard High School (KY), Dobyns Bennett High School (TN), Lakota West High School (OH) and San Fransisco City College (CA). Not to mention Joker has Marvin Lewis as the keynote speaker for the event.

The Cats have players on their current roster and freshmen who will enroll this summer who played at the above schools. The UK staff is actively recruiting players at each of these schools to continue the pipelines they have established. By bringing the high school coaches to Lexington, it's another way to sell the program. This is a very smart move by UK and one aspect of Operation Win that can't go unnoticed. GO CATS!


  1. Is the hosting of coaches by UK something new? If not, I don't recall ever having heard about it in the past. This sounds like another step in upping the quality of recruit UK persues.

  2. I use the term "hosting", but it's a coaches clinic. You can see the UK website for more details. I'm impressed with the coaches who will speak at the clinic. Yes, I view this as a step in the right direction. I'm sure there were some other coaches who were unable to attend.
