Grant Traylor is about to become a household name

You will want to add a new Follower to your list on Twitter by Tuesday morning. Grant Traylor is the lone reporter who will be in attendance when Andrew Wiggins makes his college decision on Tuesday at 12:15 p.m. Classmates, friends and family will also be there for the decision, but Traylor will be the only media member. Traylor is a reporter for the Herald-Dispatch in Huntington, West Virginia. I think it’s safe to say this might be his most highly anticipated gig yet.

In case you were wondering just how fast Grant Traylor was going to be come a household name… He has gained 1,000 new followers in 7 minutes. #KentuckyEffect? #AndrewWigginsEffect? Probably a combination of both.

    It’s more of the Kentucky effect. Its obvious he’s going to pick FSU. Good luck to him. Wish he had decided to pick UK.

    For those of you wigging out about there not being a press conference, stop. Other big recruits for cal haven’t had a presser, and we’ve known for months that he would most likely “have a friend tweet it out”. It seems the whole time the one thing we had against us is the rock star attention he would get here. But everything that has came out of his mouth seems to fit coming to UK. He may end up at FSU, but not having a press conference is not new news, and not a reflection on whether he comes to UK.

    Chad I will bet you a small 20 dollar gift card of your choice if he picks anywhere but UK.

    Mr. Taylor, please enlighten us on any conversations with Sen. Jay Rockefeller that may pertain to this career advancement opportunity. And please don’t mention Lenny.

    Wiltjer at SF? That’s preposterous. He’s way too slow to guard PFs let alone SFs. Poythress will be backup at SF.
