During an interview with Kentucky Sports Radio’s Matt Jones, former Kentucky guard John Wall confirmed a rumor that has been floating around Lexington for years: That on a recruiting visit, former Kentucky head Billy Gillispie kicked the player out of a practice.

Considering that Wall would go on to become arguably the most important recruit that John Calipari landed in his time at UK, maybe Billy Clyde could have gone about that a different way.

Then again, considering the number of stories we hear about his time in Lexington, I guess it’s not all that surprising that he only lasted two seasons.
