If you were around this weekend, you probably know that top 2012 recruit Alex Poythress of Clarksville, Tenn. was in town for an unofficial visit. All indications are that he enjoyed the trip, telling National Recruit Spotlight that the visit to Kentucky was probably his favorite and that he would be cutting his list down to five in the next couple of days. He then plans to take official visits to all five of the schools.
One interesting note from the visit is that he was accompanied by his mother, grandmother and two sisters, which wouldn’t be news except that one of his sisters is a twin who is being recruited by the UK volleyball team. She got to check out the volleyball team and coaches, and Poythress said that her inclusion was his favorite part of the visit. He also said that they are thinking about going to school together, although she has yet to visit anywhere but Kentucky.
He didn’t explicitly say that Kentucky would make the final list, but this certainly makes it seem like they’re in very good shape.
