Well for those of you that decided to spend this weekend as a weekend away from the computer…..well I salute you…..but you did miss a lot. We have a TON of stuff backed up for your consumption. I have interviews with Miller and Clarke still to post and some other tidbits and quotes, but for now I just think we should get everyone caught up. If you havent read the posts below, scroll down and do it. There is a LOT there. But here is the short primer…..
(1) The individual pictured above is 2010 Recruit KC Ross-Miller who is ranked as one of the Top 5 players in America in his class. He verballed to UK this weekend and said he will be a UK Wildcat in the future. In so doing, he becomes the second youngest verbal ever…..just beat out by Dakotah Euton a few weeks ago. We have an interview with Miller to put up tomorrow and he will be on The Sports Mob on Tuesday at 5:30.
(2) We also found out this weekend that Roshown Mcleod of Duke basketball fame is going to be part of the UK staff. It is unclear what his role will be, but it will either be as the third assistant or (more likely) the Director of Basketball Operations. Get ready for some Duke love in Rupp I guess….
(3) Willie Warren, the amazing dunker and talker has committed to Baylor….well at least for now. Rotnei Clarke confirmed to me that he has committed, but this is Willie’s third such commitment. So all we can say is, lets just wait and see…..
(4) Speaking of Rotnei Clarke, he visited this weekend and it was “amazing” according to the young man. IF you scroll down, you will see an interview with his father, and we will post our interview with him tomorrow. In addition, he will be on the Sports Mob at 5:30 today.
(5) 2007 recruit and potential UK player for next year Leonard Washington also finished his visit. If you scroll down, you will see our interview wiht him as well. He plans on making his decision on Monday….so stay tuned.
(6) Andre Clark and Mike Jones also visited this weekend. Clark is another 2007 recruit from Arkansas that has some big man skills and Jones is a 2006 recruit from South Carolina who went to Syracuse and is now at a Junior College (the same one as Billy Clyde connection Jeff Kidder). Both of those visits were part of the 6 kids on campus this weekend.
(7) Finally, Darius Miller was on campus as well this weekend. I keep hearing a decision from Miller could come in the next few weeks.
So there is the news…..it literally wore me out. You can scroll down and see more on each of these stories and there will be more to report going forward. But for now, welcome the 6th Billy Clyde recruit to commit (Legion, Patterson, Liggins, Vilarino, Euton and Ross-Miller). The man is amazing…..
