There is no fanbase in America that is more passionate about it’s basketball recruiting than the University of Kentucky, and there is no one person, in my opinion, that is better at giving a nationwide viewpoint of the recruiting landscape than Evan Daniels. So, just wanted to give a huge congrats to Evan who has been promoted to National Recruiting Analyst for scout.com, a position previously held by Dave Telep and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Evan has done numerous live blogs for KSR, something that he certainly had to squeeze into a busy schedule. And during those live blogs, I don’t think I have ever seen him stumped on a single kid. Point being, the man knows his stuff and is as reliable with his info as they come. I am sure we will have Evan on in the near future again to talk about the 2011 class, if there will be any additions to it, and what 2012 is shaping up as.
Evan’s promotion to his job, and my promotion to 3rd favorite blogger for Kentucky Sports Radio, also elevates us as the most successful roommate combo in WKU history. We just passed Kentucky Supreme Court Chief Justice John Minton and Friday the 13th director John Carpenter on that list. Suck on that Big Red!!
So, spend a minute to congratulate Evan on facebook, twitter, or in the comments section. Don’t worry about the recruiting rankings that he now has control over, I already passed him several Abe Lincolns to make sure Kentucky’s guys are ranked in the Top 25. That is in the bag.
