The message boards are hot with talk that 2009 super point guard John Wall is possibly leaning toward Kentucky but, according to this article in yesterday’s Charlotte Observer, that might not be entirely accurate at this point. When asked about Kentucky being his leader, Wall said it was only being said because he has taken two visits already (seems to be a logical assumption to me) and that he’s still considering Kansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Virginia and some others that he didn’t mention specifically.
So, what’s the big news in this story? Probably nothing really (outside of the Ryan “Poop Tooth” Kelly reference), but I have to admit that I’m really falling in love with this kid the more I read up about him. There is no more important position in college basketball than point guard and my man crush has me thinking that this kiddo could have a National Player of the Year type of impact as a freshman. But, then again, I’ve been drinking a lot of Mountain Dew at work today so maybe I’m getting a little too extreme for my own good. Anyway, here’s a video of Mr. Wall.
