Kentucky has landed another much needed big man in Elroy Vargas, a 6’11” post player who is transferring from Florida after his freshman season.
Kentucky is one of two top-tier programs (UNC is the other) that are in a mad scramble for big men. While Vargas was considered a Kentucky lean, it still puts more pressure on UNC to close some deals with one of the few remaining big men in the 2010 class.
Vargas’ time at Florida wasn’t exactly spectacular, but it’s important to remember that in reality, most players don’t arrive on campus and play lights out from day one. While that alone doesn’t mean Vargas will find more success at UK, it does mean fans shouldn’t judge a player too early, especially in the college game.
