According to NationofBlue.com , during an interview at Conkwright Elementary School in Winchester, he told the students that he was 50/50 right now in his decision to go the NBA or stay with the Wildcats. I’ll take this as a grain as salt, as he was doing a public speaking to grade school students, and he surely would not tell them he was leaving.
Joesph Uchebo has cut his list of schools down to 3, Wake Forest , Florida State, and last but not least the Cats. Also keep an eye out on Ryan Harrow, a 6 foot, 158 point guard out of Marietta, Georgia. according to rivals he is ranked 19 in the 2011 class and was once a commit to NC State and doesn’t have a list of schools to narrow down from at the moment but Kentucky might be a school that might be interested in the kid. Both could be a great pick up for next years cats.
It’s took me awhile for me to gather myself after the final four loss and get back to the recruiting trail but I’ve done it. Since the season ended, Cal leaving to the NBA rumors, The freshmen along with Liggins have kept us on the edge with their draft decision but the most important thing that happens during the off season for UK fans is recruiting. Even though UK has secured themselves with the #1 recruiting class, with the likes of Anthony Davis Jr., Michael Gilchrist, Marquis Teague, and Kyle Wiltjer…Coach Cal hasn’t quit. With the chances of Knight, and Jones leaving and Liggins returning, opens the possibility of new players coming in along with those four. Pictured above Trevor Lacey, a 6’3, 200 pound guard out of Huntsville, Alabama, who is considered the best player left that is not signed in the 2011 class. Lacey would be a replacement for Knight if Knight were to leave. Lacey wouldn’t start right away but as another guard on the roster that can be productive, he’d be it. Lacey who has made it clear that he’s down to 3 schools, Kentucky, Kansas, and his home state Alabama. He’s going to visit those 3 schools in May and then decide where he attends. Lacey, played in the Derby Festival Classic, and said that he felt the love from the UK fans…hopefully that’s a good sign. The recruiting doesn’t stop there. Calipari was caught in a mess last year with the Kanter problems and was left with a very thin front line…that’s not gonna happen again. JosephUchebo, a 6’9, 240 pound center out of Raleigh, North Carolina who was once committed to NC State and then decommitted and attended the same high school as John Wall has said that Kentucky has been recruiting him. Never lose confidence in the grand poobah which is Coach Cal. Expect more posts and updates from me as the recruiting season winds down. Good night folks.
