LEXINGTON — From Down Under to Big Blue Nation, Australian forward Isaac Humphries experienced a dramatic change of scenery by leaving hometown Sydney to play hoops across the pond the United States.

The 7-foot versatile big man was originally a member of the 2016 recruiting class but reclassified to 2015 back in August in order to enroll at Kentucky in time for the upcoming season and push UK to yet another No. 1 recruiting class.

Before committing to the Cats, Humphries spent last season at a prep school in La Porte, Indiana, and shined at the FIBA U17 World Championships by leading the Australian team in both points (18.9) and rebounds (11.6) before falling to Team USA in the championship game.
