Kevin Knox showed us it’s not wise to read too much into the “expert” predictions in 247 Sports’ Crystal Ball, but today, the site’s national college basketball writer Kevin Flaherty picked Texas for Mohamed Bamba, the latest in a wave of momentum for the Longhorns in the big man’s recruitment. Kentucky still has 48% of the predictions, including recruiting guru Jerry Meyer’s, but I personally will take some comfort in the words of Evan Daniels, who told Ben Roberts that there’s practically zero word from Bamba’s camp, other than he’s probably down to Kentucky and Texas.
“I have nothing new. I wish I did,” Daniels said. “Mohamed is certainly taking his time, and he’s going through this process a little differently. … We’ll see how it plays out.”
While we wait on Bamba, let’s enjoy his latest highlights. If he commits to Kentucky while I’m in Italy, that means I have to stay there for good luck, right?
