Orthogonal Polynomials play a key role in analysis of random matrices. We discuss universality limits in the so-called unitary case, showing how the universality limit reduces to an asymptotic involving reproducing kernels associated with orthogonal polynomials. As a consequence, we show that universality holds in measure for any compactly supported measure.
