    If he’s committed why wouldn’t he sign his LOI? This doesn’t sound good to me. I’ve seen his Instagram and he’s always repping UK but could the start of the season have him worried who’s coming back?

      Doesn’t sound good to me, either. Don’t they just sign them, and fax or mail them in?

      I wouldn’t think so BUT you truly never know. There really isn’t a reason not to sign if you’re 100% fully committed.

      There are so many reasons to not sign, and lots of guys in the past at UK and elsewhere have committed but not signed right away. And honestly if he decided that he didn’t want to go here between now and the spring, it’s the best thing for everyone for him to not come here.

      Why would any top recruit sign a NLOI? It serves only to guarantee a scholarship, which he will most certainly get, and to bind him to going to a particular school. No advantage to the elite recruit at all.

      Go ahead ukcamel, read off that long list of recruits, lol.

    I wouldn’t worry about a basketball commit that much. They’re not like football commits and change their mind every 5 minutes.

      But it happens.

    UK is not the self proclaimed “Roman Empire of college basketball anymore.

    Sometimes they like to have a ceremony, take pictures etc. I could see why his family would want to be there.

      Now that’s a good point.

    If my memory is correct Brandon Knight never signed an LOI just a financial aid agreement when he enrolled.


    Family is in Chicago, he is in New Jersey. Since most signing events feature the athletes family and coaches, maybe the logistics just aren’t jiving during the fall. I wouldn’t sweat it.
