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

Ben Bradley’s announcement is running a little behind

For whatever reason, Ben Bradley’s announcement is now two hours behind schedule with no explanation from Bradley or anyone involved in his recruitment. A Kentucky football recruiting Twitter account (@RecruitKentucky) tweeted that the delay has something to do with whether or not he can enroll at Kentucky: “Hearing a little bit on Bradley. Dilemma is when he can enroll. If he can today at UK, he goes to Kentucky. If not, Auburn. Wants UK.”  That could be the case, or he could still be sleeping.  Or maybe he’s having trouble finding a Wi-Fi connection.  I don’t know.  But hopefully we hear something soon.

Justin Rowland of Rivals.com says Kentucky and Auburn are both confident in landing the 4-star defensive tackle.

    Making decisions can be taxing….probably freaking out.

    If it’s paying time he wants there will be plenty of it at UK – if it’s money then Auburn is good at paying off their athletes, not as good as the University of Miami though.

    I work third shift and have stayed up to hopefully see this kid pick UK. I guess I’m gonna have to throw in the towel and hope I wake up to some good news. Or maybe I will wake up to keep waiting…

    It sounds like it is a admission issue with UK? Why. We need players that can play football.

    If this was unc, Bradley would already have a Bachelors and be into his 2nd year of Grad school. Suprised he didn’t sign with unc.

    The previously long thread and now this one for a football recruit remind me of a snowy day in Central KY when everyone was refreshing trying to find out about one Dennis Johnson! This kid is not as highly rated as DJ was, but the bad weather kept pushing back that announcement while we all refreshed and made uneducated guesses then too.

    Anyone consider that the reason the announcement is delayed may be because of UK trying to get him admitted?

    Drew and Mrs. T.T. – Why would you poke fun at a recruit on a UK fan website? Mrs. T.T. – “still waiting. Bradley either overslept, can’t access Twitter, or doesn’t own a clock. Or maybe he’s had a change of heart?” Drew – “Could still be sleeping…etc.”

    18-19

    Not that simple people. The reason for the delay is not just due to that but also UGA has made a last minute pitch to him.



  26. Come on now

    Admissions needs a “bat phone”



  27. G-Unit

    UGA was hoping that Toby Johnson (their #1 priority) was going to be ready to go back from blowing his knee. Apparently he is not where they wanted him to be so they are deciding to look elsewhere.

    Come on Sandy Bell, give this admission the “Jason Parker treatment.”

    If they are having trouble admitting him, stoops will step in. He will not let this kid go to auburn because of the admission office.

    Kansas City Chiefs called him and told him he will be the 1st pick in this years draft. There NOW you have it – put it between your knees and squeeze.

    Drew is admissions the hangup?



  50. G-Unit
    2:45 pm January 7, 2013 Permalink

    HERE IS MY TAKE FWIW-

    His coach is pushing Aub. Ga may come in because they lost commit yesterday to Okla St who is an early enrollee. Heard Ga was not upset because they may come back in and offer Bradley to insure Johnson. Trade a good high school kid to Ok St for one great player in Johnson and also get a very good player in Bradley who can play next year.

    My take is the kid wants to play for UK, his coach has ties to Aub and is wanting him to wait it out due to UK wanting him for enrolling this week, maybe put UK in a bind to get him in today. Could be more to the Ga angle.

    I’m just glad we are talking football in January. It will be even better when Loserville comes to our house and gets that ass handed to them. BCS champs that play no ranked teams next year. Pretty sweet deal.

    Aren’t Auburn’s admission standards higher than UK’s? It’s either a lack of paperwork being submitted or he’s waiting on UGA to offer. I’ll go with whatever G-Unit says.
