A versatile wing that UK set their targets on this summer was one of Michigan’s finest and Scout’s #9 SF in the 2011 class, Brandan Kearney. Kearney is set to make his college decision today at 11am, according to GoSpartans.net.
He took a visit to UK earlier in the fall and has spoke highly of Calipari’s ability to develop NBA-level talent, but still told Scout.com’s Dave Telep in mid-October that Michigan State was his leader. Kearney also had many good things to say about Coach Izzo, especially the way he had led Kearney to believe that he was recruiting both him and his family. For those reasons, the safest bet is that he will be choosing his home-state Spartans today.
I’ll post something around 11 when Kearney makes his official announcement.
