Jim Calhoun was never afraid of letting a reporter know when he asked a bad question, thus creating some of the most memorable press conference rants of all-time.

Isaac Humphries has reclassified to 2015 and signed with Kentucky, meaning that the 7-foot- Australian will be a member of the Wildcats for the 2015-16 season. reported that this would happen three weeks ago.

Humphries was a top 50 recruit in the Class of 2016 rankings, according to Rivals, and he’ll enter the collegiate ranks as one of the younger front court players in the country; he turns 18 in January. He’s not a typical Kentucky big man, meaning that he’s not as skilled as Skal Labissiere or as athletic as Willie Cauley-Stein.

But he’s big. He’s big-bodied and strong and he has a solid touch in the paint and around the rim. He’s not a game-changing recruit — at least not for this season, as he has to spend two years in college — but he’ll add depth to the front line, he’ll have a year to develop under Calipari in a reserve role and he’ll provide some insurance should Labissiere run into any trouble with the NCAA.

Humphries averaged 18.9 points, 11.6 boards and 3.3 blocks at the U17 World Championships last year. He joins Labissiere, Jamal Murray, Isaiah Briscoe, Charles Matthews and Mychal Mulder in Kentucky’s 2015 recruiting class.
