University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Kentucky leads for Shabazz?

We have some good news – if you can call it that – for fans of recruiting and great high school basketball players. Neil Neives of Coast2Coast Recruiting believes Kentucky is the leader for Shabazz Muhammad. Someone close to Muhammad’s recruitment told Neives that Kentucky is making the strongest push for the nation’s top player and if he had to pick today, Shabazz would pick Kentucky.

Shabazz isn’t deciding until the spring so a lot can change between now and then. You still have to like the way it looks at this point, though.

Go Cats.

    Why would he want to play anywhere else?

    Well, it is Kentucky after all. Of course we are.

    Yay, Shabazz.

    Boo, Franklin. Still pissed at you for ruining the BWE finale for me.

    Come on Shabazz! Why wait make it official even if it’s only verbal.

    Id rather him announce at the McDonalds all american game. More attention for UK and him.

    Shabazz is going to be an NBA stud, his game reminds me a lot of Melo.
    I sure hope Coach Cal is trying to land 2013 recruit Kasey Hill, he’s a PG with a lot of size and does a great job of distributing the ball, he’s perfect for the DDM and he’s still kind of under the radar in his class. Hope Cal figures out who he is before it’s too late.

    Hope if Bazz does come here – and has a bad game or two… that Matt doesn’t slam him or allow knuckleheads on ksr to slam him.

    Glad we can slam the players for bad games – but we can’t slam Joker for flat out sucking…???

    Let me go ahead and get the foolish commenter questions out of the way:
    1. Can he shoot free throws?
    2. Can he foul when told to?
    3. Will he play every game?
    4. How many schollies does that leave us?
    5. I heard he wants to stay all 4 years, who would be our starting 5 in 2014 if that’s the case?

    Shazam! I mean, Shabazz!

    #7…Great point about Joker

  11. DavenderCatTheSequel

    Silent verbal

    I feel he will end up at UK, he will be best prepared for league via UK and Coach Cal. He is diffidently a program changer. Past players in the league and TV airtime. He knows where is the best location for him.

    #6 Kasey Hill has a lot of size? lists him at 6’0″ and 160 lbs., not exactly the prototypical Cal PG. Regardless, he is ranked #2 PG by Scout, so I think Cal has probably figured out who he is. But Hill is rumored to be a strong Florida lean. I’m thinking Cal is going for the Harrison twins in 2013.

    Nice news but really means nothing right now.

    8 — Ha, I was going to ask if he could shoot free throws. That said…can he?

  17. Another Perspective

    “Someone close to” ain’t the same as the horse’s mouth.

  18. Matt Mitchell

    Does he have a sister?????That can DUNK

  19. jengland

    my guess…he will be a wildcat if the entire starting lineup leaves

    I think Shabazz may surprise people with an early commitment. If he decides whole heartedly where he wants to go, I dont think he waits. Reason I say this, Shabazz is so good it doesnt matter who stays and who goes on a team. Even if he doesnt start, he will get plenty of playing time and he knows that. It would be nice if he gave Cal a great Christmas gift, but, he probably will wait. You never know anymore with these kids. As for Kasey Hill, he’s a back up plan to the Harrison twins. You wanna talk about size, the Harrison twins are 6’5, so that means a 6’5 pg. Not to mention, in 2013, Ryan Harrow will probably still be around so there will be no need in Kasey Hill.
