They’re the best of friends, having so much fun together…
In the afternoon notes, Drew told you that 2012 big man Tony Parker announced he’s added UConn to his long list of suitors, which also includes the Cats, Duke, UCLA, Ohio State, Memphis, and Kansas. After doing some digging, I discovered that Tony Parker 1) is not Eva Longoria’s NBA playing ex-husband and 2) gets daily calls from current UK commit Alex Poythress, encouraging him to pledge his allegiance to the Cats. CBSSports’ Jeff Borzello writes:
Kentucky recently began showing more interest in Parker, and the Wildcats are in the mix for his final official visit. The Wildcats have already secured a commitment from Alex Poythress, Parker’s friend and AAU teammate on the Georgia Stars.
Poythress has been helping Kentucky recruit Parker.
“Their interest is good,” Parker said. “I get the Kentucky calls everyday from [Poythress], making sure I’m watching the game. It’s a great place.”
Next time I go through the Wendy’s drive-thru in Clarksville, I’m going to tip that young man an extra dollar.
