If you’re reading this right now, you’d probably really like to know where Mohamed Bamba and Kevin Knox are going to go to college. Well, unfortunately, I don’t have a concrete answer for you, but I can share ESPN Insider Jeff Borzello’s best guess on both. Let’s start with the good news. Borzello believes Bamba is coming to Kentucky, putting his confidence level at 55%.
“Bamba is still publicly considering all four schools on his final list, but most coaches involved believe it’s between Kentucky and Texas at this point. Texas’ chances received a boost when Jarrett Allen decided to keep his name in the NBA draft, and Kentucky’s mass exodus over the past few weeks hasn’t hurt the Wildcats’ odds either. Neither side is totally confident right now, but Kentucky appears to have a slight edge.”
Okay, what about Knox? Unfortunately, Borzello’s thoughts echo many in recruiting circles when he implies that Kentucky’s not really in the picture. He predicts Knox will go to either Missouri or Duke, giving them both a 45% chance of landing the five-star small forward, with Cuonzo Martin swooping in and making the Tigers a legitimate contender in the last few weeks.
I don’t think Knox will end up at Kentucky either, but you have to think Calipari’s got better than a 10% shot, right?
