Ricardo Gathers wants an offer from Kentucky

Ricardo Gathers is the 8th-ranked power forward and the sixth best player available in the class of 2012, according to Scout.com. ┬áHe was originally committed to St. John’s but decommitted in early November because he wasn’t 100% sure with the decision. Now he’s considering Kentucky, St. John’s, Baylor, LSU and N.C. State — and he’s holding out for an offer from the Cats.

“I haven’t really heard from them yet. I’m kind of waiting on it,” he said. “If it happens, it happens.”

Watch for yourself.

    #3. 6th player STILL available. Most have already signed. Send him the offer Cal..

    4) Cal’s still waiting on Bennett. We’ve already got Poythress, and Willis the year after, not to mention the guys he’s still after for 2013. If Gathers isn’t one-and-done, Cal will wait as long as possible.

    I’m going to barf if i keep seeing Sarah Palin at the top of the page much more. You’d think her head would be smaller since there is nothing in there.

    Scout has Gathers at 33, ESPN has him at 34, Rivals has him at 37. He’s 8, 10 & 13 in their position rankings.

    He’s the 34th ranked player overall on ESPN (****). Scouts say he has an NFL body and could be an intimidating enforcer !

    ESPN rankings should no longer be referred to in my opinion.. Considering they had wall at 5

    TAKE HIM. Bennett and Bazz won’t be worried about playing time if we sign Gathers. Gathers knows he’s not a ‘1 n done’ – can’t hurt to have a 3 or 4 year player.

    With that said, IN CAL – I TRUST…

    Related to Hank?

    Well I want an offer to but we all know that’s not gonna happen.

    How good are his school grades? Is he a good person? I don’t know the answers, but I’m guessing Cal does. You don’t offer a kid just because he’s available and he has enough talent. There are other factors to consider.

    Why are we unveiling new uniforms in a game that starts at 4 Eastern, on Tuesday (While most of the world is still at work), and the game is not even nationally televised?….

    What? Game starts at 7 Eastern.

    Our game’s at 7 according to my schedule.

    17, do you mean 4 Pacific time? Because if not, you are reading the incorrect start time for the game.

    #17 – have you “seen” the new uni’s? Scheduling the wearing of these when the fewest possible people could see them is pure genius!!!

    Can someone intelligently explain to me the hate of the uniforms? For one game..who cares?

    By the way, NCAA…pass the rule that the home team can wear the dominant color at home. They are the “big blue” not the “big white.” Should be wearing blue at home, not on the road.

    #12 I do not take anything from the horses mouth known as ESPN, but their prep basketball ranking and analysis has greatly improved since they hired Dave Telep. Guy knows his stuff and is inside the scene more than even the swagg master himself, Evan Daniels.

    13) It can hurt if it means you don’t get the Harrisons, Noel, Randle, Parker or the like in 2013 because of how many schollies you have.

    If there is room and Cal wants him…why not….big body and physical….UK needs that IMO

    We should bust out burnt orange Uni’s for one game…..against UT!!!! Why not purple?? Hot Pink???

    BLUE AND WHITE MORONS!!!!!

    He’s the 8th ranked power forward, but the 5th ranked player??? How is that possible??

    Sounds like if UK offers, he is Big Blue Nation bound.

    Just because a kid wants to play at KY does’t mean Cal wants him. Look at Hickey who wanted to play for KY and wasn’t recruited by UK or Louisville. This kid played for Christian Co. who were the KY State Champs plus he was Mr. KY. Wonder why neither school wanted him ? Hopkinsville is where I used to live before I moved to Ga. and still know a lot of people there, and I know why neither school wanted Hickey. Enough said. Cal will pick who he wants and that is good enough, plus they want disgrace the BBN.
