PREP Athletics is proud to have former UK Wildcat basketball player Tom Heitz on the podcast. Tom played at UK from 1979-1984. He backed up two lottery picks in Sam Bowie and Melvin Turpin. Tom was on the UK 1984 Final Four team that lost to Patrick Ewing and Georgetown. He was drafted in later rounds by the Indiana Pacers. Tom also happens to be my uncle! On this podcast he discusses being on the same recruiting trip to UK as Ralph Sampson, getting kneed in the groin while taking a charge on Charles Barkley on national tv, and being runner up to Mr Basketball in the state of Indiana.
