    I hate to say it, but he fits the bill for a dookie. I’ll change my mind if he signs with us, but he has that look. I can see him there.


      Yeah…he just has that punchable look about him. Definitely a fit for Duke or KU.

      Same! I’ll pass. This guy looks to slow to guard my grandma. Another Wiltjer

      It is pretty clear that you three are the same troll. Get a life.

    4. catsarerunnin

      Slater has a life. It’s one none of us would want.

    5. UKCatAttack

      Wouldn’t Herro fit that description too. Ignorant post.

    So, in other words … no news. Took a lot of words to say that.

    1. UKCatAttack

      The news is Coach Cal is at his game tonight

  3. StuckinLville

    Really gonna need him or someone else cuz i just feel nick will leave. Hoping he breaks the cycle and stays but just a feeling.

    1. Irish son

      Where in TF is Nick going to go? He couldn’t play for EKU, Let alone the NBA

    2. StuckinLville

      Never said NBA

    Kansas has been the favorite for a while and Duke is making a push lately. It’s obvious the kid doesn’t want to come here so go after kids who do. Now I’m also just going off the info that gets reported and Cal knows more than me but it just seems like we spend too much time recruiting kids who have given every indication that they would rather go to other schools.

    1. Bobbum Man

      Good thing he didn’t give up on the Harrison twins, Hagans, Terrence Jones etc etc etc

    2. Alex90

      Harrison Twins came down to UK or Maryland…Hagans decommitted from Georgia…Jones chose between Washington and UK. Those are different because UK is simply the better choice but in the cases where kids are heavy Duke/UNC/Kansas leans they hardly ever switch to UK.

    Sorry … and why do we want to watch highlights (AGAIN!) of a player going to Duke or Kansas?

    1. Lance

      Looks like a duke sucker. What’s up with the weak competition he’s playing against? It looked like he was playing against Fat Albert and the Gang!!!!

    2. BluejayK

      I for real lol’d at that Lance.

  6. weneedpitino

    My crystal ball predicts this kid goes elsewhere. If antigua was here we would land him. We don’t have a true recruiter here anymore.

    1. Smyrna_Cat

      We do NOT need Pitino.

    2. StuckinLville

      Yup and Cal needs to get rid of Barbee and get Coach O back. Get rid of Justus and get rod strickland back as well.

    3. catsarerunnin

      Your crystal ball is probably very small Slater.

  7. 8 god

    Let this one go, Brooks is a better fit and Hurt really does have Kyle Singler written all over him.

  8. VirginiaCat

    Seems that we are afterthoughts when it comes to top recruits. We are restricted these days to only those recruits that are not coveted by Duke.

    1. 8 god

      To be honest, it makes sense. Duke has a gorgeous, close-knit campus and is more of a “real” college experience, which appeals to certain kids. It also has a network of really powerful alumni (including the literal NBA president) that K can sell to players. And while Rupp is the best venue in the country on its best days, high school kids are easily bored and Cameron is fun and exciting even for an exhibition game (same goes for Allen, really, which keeps Kansas in the hunt). Then add in the ‘value of a Duke education,’ which is stupid for these can’t-miss OADs, but nonetheless can help sway families. Oh, and Duke students and fans are much, much more blindly supportive than UK fans, who tend to add pressure rather than take it away.

    2. catsarerunnin

      Yes we are afterthoughts. These low level 5 star recruits are just not working out. Hopefully we will return to the days of yearly undefeated seasons and national championships…

    3. weneedpitino

      Agreed we can’t get any top talent anymore. I think they should try and land that brantly Stevenson kid, or Jalen Cooke, or I know I really like that Myles wilmoth kid. All good players of course. Go cats!!

    4. henderblue

      8god…is that you Coach K? You’re on the wrong website

  9. KYjellyRoll

    That slow shot needs work…will get called for a lot of carries handling the ball…he’d be a developed player after a year but he wouldn’t make a huge impact out of the gate. Who knows come on down!

  10. weneedpitino

    Our days of landing top recruits are over, we have no recruiting guru’s. They really should give that Eddie lampkin kid a look, also Hayden Hefner, and Mason hooks is a stud, oh and one more Matt zona is a beast. I know a little about recruiting and I think you should take my word. I helped my great uncle do a little recruiting years back for a D3 school he was an assistant at. Pomona pitzer, I’m sure alot of you have heard of it. Go cats, and go Pomona pitzer sagehens.

    1. catsarerunnin

      All the more reason for you to become a Kansas fan. They win titles like almost every year…
