I just spoke with my AAU source on Leonard and he told me that Leonard would likely decide by Monday and certainly by Thanksgiving. Now of course we are used to Leonard’s deadlines coming and going…..I can think of three just this past year. But now he is fully eligible, so it may be coming to a head very quickly. The AAU source told me that “He really likes Kentucky…..but I dont know if they are going to offer him. Besides that its probably USC and Ole Miss.”
So it may come down to whether UK pulls the trigger or not. Here are some videos of Washington playing last summer. He is 6’6″, big body and a good (but in my opinion not great) player. UK can use him….he is a big body down low. But I dont consider him a program changer by any means. But with the thin front line at UK, he would be helpful. As I have said before, I do worry about his attitude somewhat. There have been a number of signs that are very worrisome, BUT they arent a secret, so the staff knows what they are getting into. We shall see. Stay tuned….
Here is also an interview I did earlier in the year with Leonard Washington:
