  Tennessee receiver gets unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for kicking Kentucky linebacker in groin area Tennessee's Ramel Keyton received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for kicking Kentucky's J.J. Weaver in the groin area during Volunteers loss.During a play in the SEC matchup with Tennessee trailing, Keyton caught a screen pass that lost 3 yards once Weaver tackled him. After a celebration by Weaver, Keyton – still on the ground and frustrated – intentionally kicked Weaver in the groin area with his cleats.

Top 25 national frontcourt prospect Daimion Collins is the latest recipient of a Kentucky scholarship offer. Collins — a 6-foot-9 forward from Hunter Sallis — one of the top playmakers in high school basketball — landed a scholarship offer from Kentucky on Friday night. The UK offer was no surprise.

Daimion Collins would fit in at Kentucky . @coreyevans_10 described him as “Isaiah Jackson on steroids.” Collins is listed at 6’9, 210, so very similar physically. Now skill wise, it’s not even fair to compare. I think ralphdaltonfan compared him to Marcus Lee, which I thought was a pretty fair

Kentucky has added another important piece to its 2021 recruiting class.

Daimion Collins announced his commitment to the Wildcats, he told ESPN's Paul Biancardi on Saturday.

Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Texas Tech were also in the running for his services.

"They will push me to be my best," Collins said. "I like how their players have developed. Me playing with and against great players, hopefully, it will make me a great player. I am ready for the challenge."

The 6-foot-9 forward is ranked 19th on 247Sports' rankings and 24th on the ESPN 100 for 2021.

Collins' addition comes less than a week after former Louisville top recruit Bryce Hopkins chose Kentucky. The Wildcats' 2021 recruiting class also includes four-star prospect Nolan Hickman.
