Just as suspected after he left Lexington without committing, former Xavier guard Dez Wells has removed Kentucky from consideration. Wells is visiting Memphis today, he’ll check out Maryland tomorrow, and then he’ll announce his commitment next week.
There was a mutual interest between Kentucky and Wells, but there were also concerns with getting him eligible and in classes so he could play right away this season. I’m sure there was also a mutual understanding that if he didn’t play in 2012-13, he could find himself towards the bottom of the rotation next year behind what will be a monstrous 2013 class for Kentucky.
We hardly even knew him.
