Louis King moving on without UK offer


Louis King is done waiting for John Calipari to extend a scholarship offer. The 6’8″ small forward from New Jersey narrowed his list today, and Kentucky did not make the cut, per Pat Lawless. King, who played for Calipari on the FIBA World Cup team, will now choose between Kansas, UConn, Syracuse, Seton Hall, Oregon, NC State, Maryland, and Purdue.

Why didn’t King get an offer from Cal and the Cats? Simply put, Kentucky’s got too many targets at his position in the 2018 class. Cal is already going after Cam Reddish (King’s AAU teammate), RJ Barrett, and Zion Williamson, all five-star wings, and with several players expected to return from this year’s squad, there are only so many offers to dole out. Regardless, best of luck to a kid who it sounds like really wanted to come to Kentucky. I hope he doesn’t pick Kansas.

Kentucky’s 2018 offers so far:

Name Position
RJ Barrett SG/SF
Bol Bol C
Darius Garland PG
Quentin Grimes PG
Keldon Johnson SG
Romeo Langford SG
Immanuel Quickley PG
Cameron Reddish SF
Zion Williamson SF

    Cut Romeo. Selfish player IMO

    In a related story, I’ve moved on from the head cheerleader from my high school days. She didn’t know I was alive unless she needed homework help, but my decision to move on has nothing to do with that.

    If cal gets as long as he did working with a kid and still doesnt recruit him, pretty sure cal saw something he didnt want.
