As I said way back when this thread was started, if UK gets involved it is a wrap...

I think you mean Eric but yeah...a lot of UK's 2014 class will have to do with how many guys leave for the NBA from this years team. It isn't necessarily a given that they will offer especially since he is only going to have 2 years to play.

Well, we need him a hell of a lot more than UK, so maybe the cosmos will be kind to us.

I understand him having his heart set on going to UK because of their national prominence, but I don't think their fan base would be nearly as excited as ours to welcome him on campus. I'm not saying UK fans wouldn't appreciate him committing, but they get so many 5-star recruits that picking up a 4-star JUCO player would be fairly ho-hum.

I hope eventually these 3-4 star players that have been going to UK will realize they will get recruited over every single year. For example you've got a kid like Derek Willis or Jon Hood who had good offers to other schools and never got minutes. Then there is guys like Ryan Harrow or Kyle Wiltjer who basically had to transfer out to get the minutes they want.

The kids who make it to this level are all full of confidence and believe they can play for anyone, regardless of what the recruiting rankings say. I think that's why the 3- and 4-star guys will keep going to Kentucky despite the fact history says they will be lucky to ever start. Sometimes the heart wins out over your head. I agree though that those guys would be wise to look elsewhere.

Haha, one of those Bledsoe's.

Any news on his visits? Does he have one set up to UC, I haven't seen anything really linking him to UC.

(2014/6'4/SG) Torian Graham of Chipola drops a smooth 20pts(8-11) in 91-69 win over Central GA Tech with Cincinnati in attendance.

Waiting on the UK offer but Cincy putting on the full court press.

Hope they stay away and get some other big name.
