University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Kentucky is NOT recruiting LaMelo Ball

The Ball family will not be joining the Big Blue Nation.

Earlier this month the youngest Ball, LaMelo, returned from the professional ranks in Lithuania to play high school basketball at Spire Academy in Ohio.  Naturally, there was an introductory press conference. LaMelo said he hoped to play college basketball at a school like Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina and Michigan State, even though he already played professionally.

LaMelo can hope all he wants, he isn’t playing at UK.  Ben Roberts reports that Kentucky is not recruiting LaMelo.

While the news may bring joy to some fans, I’m disappointed we’ll never see the day when Kentucky Sports Radio is hosted by Matt Jones and Lavar Ball.

    He already played professionally. How would he be able to play anywhere?

      Well,if he commits to dook or UNCheat, you can bet that the corrupt NCAA will find a way to make him eligible.

      If all the money was given to his dad I think he’d still be eligible if they can prove he wasn’t paid directly. I don’t know if that’s the case but it’s all I can think of.

      The money for Kanter went into an account that was never used by him. So shouldn’t matter who the money went to.

    The NCAA says its perfectly legal to get paid professionally…just don’t ever let us catch someone paying for your lunch. We absolutely draw a line in the sand on that one!

    Enes Kanter was paid into an account for college, and he offered to return every dime. Was ineligible. No way Ball plays, unless it’s for Duke

    I don’t think I have seen any other site say anything about UK recruiting ball other than this site.

    His dad has stated the kid has never been paid. But who can trust what that clown says?

  7. StuckinLville

    Ball said he wants to play at Duke, Carolina or UK. If he were to go to UK, the NCAA would declare him ineligible. If he goes to Duke or Carolina, he will be eligible. Duke will take him. I don’t think Cal wants him.
