As we continue to wait for news on next year’s roster, Kentucky Basketball just gave us a glimpse at what the guys on campus right now are doing. The program’s social media staff posted this one-minute video of spring workouts, which features Keion Brooks, Davion Mintz, Isaiah Jackson, Jacob Toppin, Lance Ware, Dontaie Allen, and Oscar Tshiebwe in the weight room and gym.

Now…should you read anything into Jackson, Brooks, and Mintz taking part in workouts? Not really. School is still in session, with finals starting next week, so the fact that they’re still on campus and training with the team isn’t that crazy. Jackson put his name in the draft but left the option to return open; however, his father has said they’ll stay in if he’s projected to be a lottery pick, which is what the current mocks forecast.
As for Mintz and Brooks, they’re reportedly still mulling their options, but I’d be lying if I said seeing them alongside Toppin, Ware, Allen, and Tshiebwe didn’t soothe my anxiety about next year’s roster just a little bit.
