Evan Daniels and Jerry Meyer predict UK will get both Devin Booker and James Blackmon


Good news for the Cats: both Scout’s Evan Daniels and 247’s Jerry Meyer think UK will land both Devin Booker and James Blackmon Jr tomorrow. Daniels just tweeted:

Few weeks ago I was skeptical of Kentucky getting Devin Booker & James Blackmon. Not anymore.

Meyer spoke to the Herald-Leader’s Ben Roberts and agreed:

“I feel pretty confident that Blackmon’s going to pick Kentucky. With Booker, I feel good enough to make the pick,” Meyer told the Herald-Leader on Wednesday afternoon. “I feel good about both picks. I just would say I’m a little more confident about Blackmon.”

Bring on the treats.

    If true I think this means no Johnson…but Poythress may come back and that would be a solid rotation.

    My sources are telling me that Booker and Blackmon will decide on a school tomorrow.

    How is that good news for the Cats when Evan Daniels says it. It will be good news for the Cats if they announce it and sign with the Cats. Only get news in here is that we are still on their list.

    Got my fingers crossed. It would be very nice,..but we shall see. Go Big Blue!!!!

    Here’s to hoping. Foreboding a similar season to last season if UK misses out on Stanley Johnson

    I’m with Marvin. It’s nice that they say so but nothing counts til the kids say it.

    @1 Booker & Blackmon both play different positions than Johnson, they won’t deter him.
    @2 We know that’s just to get hits & isn’t true, if it was UofL fans would be #1-10.
    @4 Evan Daniels is usually pretty good with his predictions of kids going to UK..

    Freshman: Booker, Blackmon, Lyles, Johnson, Towns and Ulis

    Returners: Johnson, Poythress, Lee, Willis

    That team sounds really staked to me. I’m not sure why people
    are freaking out. I’d take that team in a heartbeat.

    6-5 and 6-3 guards who are excellent shooters and great athletes. Like ’em a lot.

    @9) Jordan… don’t forget about Hawkins

    Dakari isn’t staying…. Many NBA scouts are saying he is a lottery pick… If that’s true…. He is gone

    Good call on Hawkins. With Dakari’s mom being a teacher and how important school/education I wouldn’t be shocked to see him play 2 years but it’s also
    possible to see him go. Love his game.
