Kentucky Sports Radio

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

Knight/Kanter/Jones/Selby/Lamb Updates

Brandon Knight: The Knight to UK talk heated up substantially yesterday when Florida played in the NIT lost in the first round of the NCAA tournament to hot older Mormon ladies the BYU Cougars and UK won by 200. The boiling point was hit when what Matt reported earlier occurred. Although most people tend to agree that a decision has not yet been made by Knight, Knight to UK is starting to reach the level of inevitability. If you have a pencil or one of those things that was pretty cool for about 5 minutes in the 90’s (an erasable pen), it may be getting to the point of where you can lightly pencil this one in. We’ll see…

Enes Kanter: Not much has gone on with Kanter since he left Lexington which, in terms of recruiting, is a good thing. No other visits, no new offers. As we’ve said since Kanter visited, he looks to be a pretty good possibility for the Cats 2010 class and not much has changed there. Work still needs to be done with Kanter’s recruitment before he’ll pull the trigger so I would expect that work to occur after the tournament.

Terrence Jones: This one has been rumor central. If you believed every rumor that has been written about Jones then, at this point, you think Jones has leaned to Washington, leaned to UK, committed to Washington, decommitted from Washington and commenced with his leaning again. Here’s the real story with Jones. He hasn’t committed anywhere and a decision is still in the works. Jones’ plans seem to be to watch the tournament to get a better gauge on where his suitors sit and then make a decision. I’m sure Jones is praying for a Washington/UK Elite 8 but of course that won’t happen because Marquette lost to Washington last night. What? They didn’t? Oh.

Doron Lamb & Josh Selby: Both of these kids are planning on announcing their decision at the Jordan Brand Classic on April 17th. Neither has made a decision at this point and both are expected to watch the entirety of the tournament before deciding. There is some speculation out there that they could announce their decisions to go to school together, which would mean Kansas, but that based mostly on their choice of announcement date being the same. For both, but especially for Lamb, the date was picked mostly because of its location in NYC, Lamb’s hometown. While they certainly could both announce for Kansas, I don’t believe that the reason they both chose the same date was because both has already decided for Kansas.

As you can see from all of these updates, the tournament is going to hold importance both for UK’s success this year and for their success in the future. Last night was a great start.

I enjoy basketball, Kentucky sports and extremely short walks on the beach, followed by a nap. Sorry ladies, I'm taken.

    Gus Johnson Soundboard = Awesomeness

  5. beentheredonedat

    yes watching Mizzou and Clemson… would Gus be the perfect guy to bring back the days of turning off the TV sound and turning up the radio as UK’s radio play by play man?

  8. bestteamever96

    whats going on with leslie

  9. Chevy

    has any of you ever seen a crisp 50 dollar bill?

  10. Maggard

    At what point will you provide inside information, as opposed to collecting information from various other Internet sites? I’m just askin’ ….

  12. TSmithPage

    Not that all these guys will commit to UK, but would we have room for all of them if they did?

  13. Sammy Cooke

    6 spots available


  14. catfanatic

    #12, easily, Cats are probably looking at 6 scholarships opening up next year and so far, Poole is the only committment, which would leave five left, plus no way does Selby come if Knight does

  15. bandalumnus

    Maggard, I happen to like KSR because it gathers information from every conceivable corner of the internet and imparts that information to us so that I don’t have to look at boorish websites run by self-important know it alls that think they have a corner on the Big Blue market. These guys are funny, modest, don’t take themselves too seriously, yet give us exactly what we’re looking for, at a price we’re happy with (free)! I for one, don’t care where the information comes from. Now go buzz off…

  16. cdc_uky

    Maggard, you should stop by more often. KSR provides all of the info @ no cost. Plus, everyone here enjoys themselves and the site is run by fans rather than a pompous ass with frosted tips.

  17. Basteballer from Murray!

    I got doubts about who we get but here’s what looks good:

    * Brandon Knight
    * CJ Leslie
    * Quincy (Harris) Miller
    * Enes Kanter

    The ones I don’t think we get:

    * Doron Lamb
    * Josh Selby
    * Terrance Jones
    * The Other Terrance

    The slightest possibility of coming back:

    * PPat
    * Boogie if we don’t win #8

    #16…no it’s run by a pompous ass with bad hair and a law degree…ZING!

  19. harlancatfan

    Quincy Miller is class of 2011.

  20. GoCats2

    17)I believe Miller is 2011 but it looks good anyway.

  21. bandalumnus

    #18, it must hurt that Matt can do this, be successful at it, have CBS recruit him and his crew to do work for them, all the while starting a successful law career. At least Matt isn’t trying to do comedy in the armpit of Mexico…

  22. bcat

    15.16. Roasted! Maybe if Maggard had a day job like Jones, he wouldn’t have to beg for change for his “info”.

  23. WarBear

    I think we land Knight, Leslie, & Kanter but don’t have a good vibe on the others.

  24. CJ Leslie

    Heard any more about CJ Leslie’s decision to come to UK or not?

  25. TampaCat!

    Gators believe we are dreaming about Brandon Knight! They feel very much like the Gators have him under wraps!

  26. Crazy Talk

    So thats it with Knight news? Its obvious you have zero connections and no way to find out anything.

  27. TampaCat!

    Sad if we lose Knight to anyone, especially to the gators!

  28. aaron

    I thought Maggard passed away?

  29. just sayin

    actually Marquette DID lose to Washington, so Wash/UK is still possible

  30. Blue Jesus

    Bledsoe just friended Doron Lamb on Facebook! Clearly that’s a sign.
