Well, how about that? For starters he was a Kentucky SENIOR who contributed significant minutes during the 2016-2017 season. Senior hoops players are hard to come by in Lexington.

Secondly, he's been scouted by the DALLAS COWBOYS.

So, Dominique Hawkins is a rare UK commodity on two fronts, now.

Hawkins, a Kentuckian who'd always dreamed of playing for UK, was working out for the Los Angeles Lakers.

They're kind of a big name.

During that workout, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal, Cowboys representatives showed up at the southern California workout facility to chat with the UK senior.

Hawkins played football in high school but has said that, despite the fact the Cowboys aren't the only NFL team that has expressed interest, he will continue to focus on basketball.
