Alex Poythress Says Kentucky Has A Slight Edge

Yesterday, Alex Poythress trimmed his list of potential college destinations to five, lumping Kentucky in with Memphis, Vanderbilt, Duke and Florida.  Now a report in his hometown paper makes it appear that his weekend visit to Lexington was a very productive one and the Cats have nudged their way into first place for now.  Poythress told The Leaf Chronicle in Clarksville, Tennessee the following after trimming his list yesterday:

Poythress said if he had to place one school high on his list at this juncture, Kentucky would have a slight edge.

“I had my unofficial visit there (Saturday) and really got a chance to see the campus, see the school and talk to the coaches,” Poythress said. “I really like it there and I plan on coming back for my official (visit).”

Good news for the Cats.  It’s also worth noting that in today’s roundup on ESPN.com, Dave Telep said that Vanderbilt is going all in for Poythress.  The Commodores, who were the first school to offer him a scholarship, sent head coach Kevin Stallings to every game he played in July, including the last day of the evaluation period when Stallings was flanked by two assistants and no other head coaches were present.  You want a war, Vandy?  We’ll give you a war.

    Nice news about Poythress, but real issue is KSR selling political ads. Can’t you keep the site apolitical? After all, we are one Big Blue Nation, under Cal.

    Cal against Kevin Stallings in a recruiting fight. This is one fight that should be stopped before it begins. It would be like Boogie against Masiello in one on one. No contest.

    I really like this kid’s game. I think he could be a poor man’s Kevin Durant with the potential to be an average man’s KD.
