When I woke up this morning, I did my usual routine of rolling over to pick up my phone and then staying in bed for another 30 minutes to scroll through Twitter and Instagram until I can’t possibly stay in bed another second. It was a regular morning for me. I saw tweets I missed last night, pictures of my friends’ babies, a story about a man dragging a dead raccoon into a San Francisco McDonald’s, and UK commit Khalil Whitney announcing the date he will sign his Letter of Intent to attend the University of Kentucky as a member of its men’s basketball program.
But when I went back to Twitter after drinking my morning pot of coffee and eating my morning avocado toast with two perfect over-easy eggs, the tweet from Whitney was no longer there. Was it all a dream? Did I make it up? I saw it (or thought I saw it) before I mentally joined the world for the day, so maybe it never really happened at all and I’m losing my mind.
Or perhaps he deleted it?
The way I remember it, Whitney announced he will sign with Kentucky in early May. On the third, I think? Or maybe it was the ninth.
Whatever the date, I’m pretty sure it happened, and even though it was deleted, it should give us a little more insight into his plans of making things official. As we told you on Monday, the staff has zero concern about Whitney’s commitment and the coaches fully expect him to ink the paperwork during the spring signing period.
Now get out there and vote for Whitney in USA Today High School Sports’ Super 25 Star poll.
And if you saw the tweet, please tell me so I don’t have to worry about my mental health.
