Amile Jefferson will announce on Tuesday

Adam Zagoria is reporting that the 6’8″ forward from Philadelphia plans to announce his college choice on Tuesday. He will do so at 4 p.m. from his high school. Jefferson is considering Villanova, Kentucky, N.C. State, Duke and Ohio State. Most experts have N.C. State and Duke as the clear-cut favorites to land Jefferson, but don’t sleep on Coach Cal. The four-star recruit would be a huge get for the ‘Cats, especially after recently losing out on the Anthony Bennett sweepstakes.

    Why only give credit to Rivals? He’s a 5-Star on scout.com, who has Nerlens as number one overall, unlike Rivals who has Shabazz at número uno. And if you pay attention to ESPNU’s recruiting rankings you’re insane.

    He’s a long shot to pick Kentucky.

    This kid wanted $250k like Ant Davis but Cal and i don’t think he is worth that. Sorry BBN, this one ain’t happening.

    Per Rivals.com Pollard does not have an offer from UK nor is he interested.

    Any coincidence this is coming on the heels of the Bennet announcement?

    If we are a long shot then why keep giving us updates? Find us a recruit that we may still have a chance getting.I’m sure that Cal is in on more than just one or two recruits. How about the Jr College ranks. Are we looking at anyone there?

    Even though this guy clearly the better player, I like Montrezl Harrell more. He gives us that muscle we lost from T. Jones. Amile would not provide that.

    #7 – Yes, he visited us as a junior and again as a senior during Big Blue Madness.

    Given our track record with recruiting of late my guess is he’s picking duke.



  21. Track record?

    Given our track record lately??? Wait a minute so because we didnt get shabazz and bennett all the sudden Cal cant recruit? I must have forgetten the 4 straight number one classes… Even if Amile doesnt come (gut here says no probably not) well be fine. Cal knows what hes doing better than anyone in the game and is gunna put a squad on the court next year no matter what. BBN!

    Breaking news: an inside source has indicated we have a chance at landing amile jefferson

    I agree with you 17. Montrezel Harrell has that MKG look of a warrior and plays with alot of emergy.

    #21 – I said of LATE, we are 0-4 on the last few guys we’ve gone after, shabazz, bennett, lyons, oriakhi and with mays rumored to be accepting the offer from purdue this weekend we could be 0 for the last 5 players we’ve tried to bring in.

    Right now we have a Top 15 team that has the potential to improve and make a Final Four run. To be a true Top 5 team and one of the teams that can win the NC, we need to sign a shooting guard that can contribute in a meaningful way and either Montrezel Harrell (my preference) or Amile Jefferson.
