On Thursday, we told you the news that Leonard Washington would be going to high school in 2008. I heard this from the individual who has continually been giving me Washington information. In addition, Mike Decoursey of the Sporting News (one of the best in the business) reported the same thing after talking with Leonard and his handlers for a story. This news confirmed what most had been telling me from the day this started (that Washington could not qualify) and to me, was a blessing. Now there are some sources suggesting that Washington and his crew may be changing their story and telling folks that he still can get eligible for next year. As with everything Washington related, the truth is unclear and who knows what will ultimately happen. I still dont see Washington at UK in 07, but stranger things have happened I guess.
Now, here is a video, shot by Steve John of Kentucky Sports Report, that shows Leonard throwing a VICIOUS elbow to Courtney Fortson, another UK target. We of course dont know what they were saying to each other, etc…..but the video shows a bit of why Leonard is a target that has some baggage.
