Big expectations for UK basketball freshmen as they arrive in Lexington

It’s official. The 2014-15 basketball pre-season is underway. Well, sort of. With the new guys — Karl Towns, Trey Lyles, Tyler Ulis, and Devin Booker — moving in at UK, they are now officially Kentucky Wildcats.
With Alex Poythress, Dakari Johnson, Willie Cauley-Stein, and the Harrison Twins returning, there are no doubt high expectations for this coming season. But what about the freshman? They’ve always been an enormous part of Coach Cal’s system since he stepped foot in Lexington. These four newcomers are all McDonald’s All-Americans and would be surefire starters anywhere in the country… but on a team like Kentucky, that’s still to be determined.
KSTV’s Thomas Beisner, Ben Rainwater, and Mark Krebs discuss the reasonable expectations for this batch of elite freshman.
