Australia 7-footer Isaac Humphries has officially signed with Kentucky for the class of 2015

Wildcats Add Australian Big Man Isaac Humphries to 2015 Class


UK head coach John Calipari announced the signing on Thursday.
“I watched Isaac when he first came over to the United States in high school in Indiana and was impressed with his skill and size,” Calipari said. “He reminded me of a much bigger Josh Harrellson. He’s very skilled, has great hands and is a great passer. To have a 7-footer who just turned 17, he has a lot still in front of him, and the best part is he wants the challenge of playing at Kentucky.”
