It has now been “reported” on The Cats Pause that Derrick Jasper has been considering a transfer this spring and could end up going back to California this year. Some people close to the Kentucky basketball team have been spreading this story around for the past couple of weeks (for reasons I cannot understand). Here is what I think has developed since then. Approximately two weeks ago, Derrick approached folks at UK about a possible transfer and may have even looked into it. According to the folks I have spoken with, that consideration has been already dismissed and Derrick is coming back next year. As with everything, that is of course subject to change, but those who I believe would know tell me that the story that is now breaking actually was taken care of last week.
UPDATE: Just got a call that said that more has happened since my conversation (around 4 pm) yesterday afternoon. Was told that it would be prudent (thank you George Bush) to “hold off on saying anything definite.”
As always, we will see….
