Shabazz made his decision last night

Word on the Internet is that Shabazz made his final decision last night with his family. Shabazz insinuated Monday night would be the night he makes it final, and a source confirmed that with Evan Daniels of Scout.com today.

Shabazz uploaded an Instagram photo (with 285 comments) of his National Letter of Intent with letters from all three schools late last night. I’ve seen a lot of people trying to dissect the order Shabazz stacked the letters, but I don’t think you’re going to learn anything out of the order. If Shabazz really had a method to it, I think Duke would be out because he put them on top. But again, it’s all just guessing from nothing. Don’t waste an afternoon trying to read into the order of three pieces of paper.

We’ll know for sure tomorrow night. Or until someone in his camp starts yapping.

Almost over with.

    I was going to read into it, I would say it is UK. He seems to be intentionally obscuring the UK logo to draw attention away from his choice. Then again, you can see Central Michigan’s letterhead anywhere, so maybe that’s it.

    “Part of our family” and “you have signed and dated”… I ponder if this is a play via photo or if I’m overly optimistic. Regardless, he will decide tomorrow. I’d say Duke is a far shot but UCLA and UK are the top two for obvious reasons. I don’t think Shabazz has really shown favor in either dirtection and any indication (if any) has been minimal. UK would probably be the most beneficial. The question (to which will be answered tomorrow), is which choice he and his “people” see most logical.

    Don’t have a good feeling about this one.. this may be the first big time recruit that Cal loses out on, I just think the draw of UCLA and playing with Kyle Anderson so close to home is enough to keep him on the west side.. hope I’m wrong.

    While anything can happen until he actually announces and signs tomorrow, numerous ‘sources’ seem to claim he secretly commit to UCLA 2 years ago. I hope we can grab him, noel and bennett (and heck oriaki [sp?]) as well.

    No, kids do not have to EVER sign a NOL. So, they do not have to make their decision this week. This is just the beginning of the signing period.

    I hate to say this, but UCLA is on top for a reason. This one doesn’t look good. I think he wants 20 shots a game, and Cal routinely says that UK is not a place for that player.



  17. Jezz

    Kind of looks like an olympic medal stage. Gold on top, silver on the left, slightly higher than bronze on the right.

    Although the ‘lefty’ and exposed lettering saying ‘part of our family’ is intriguing.

    If he’s not gonna be a Cat, then Cal didn’t want him for some reason. By now, we should have learned to trust the main man and his ability to recruit. I hope the Bazz comes here, but if for some reason he doesn’t, then we may never know what that reason was. What happened to all that NCAA announcement beware of the Bazz stuff?

    If you look really closely, the Duke letter appears to be slightly curled as if it was paperclipped to the NLI. UCLA’s doesn’t look that way and you can’t see ours. (over analysis)

    UCLA on top and somewhat hidden. If he picks UCLA, he’s hurting himself. Hope he enjoys not developing to his full potential, getting a 10 seed into the tournament only to be bounced in the first or second game, then being a mid teens draft pick.

    You KNOW he arranged those papers to have meaning, otherwise he wouldn’t take the picture. UCLA on top, somehwat hidden. UCLA it is.

    Don’t want to bash the kid. To each his own and good luck to him with whatever he decides to do. But if he does pick UCLA, competing for a championship is obviously not that important to him. Would be more about individual accolades. And that is fine. Some kids want that (OJ Mayo – who this kid reminds me of). But it’s not the type of kids Cal wants at UK. UCLA will not be close to competing for championships even with Shabazz.

Either he is giving BBN a hint, or he just is bad with a camera… .I say it’s UK… and Nerlens “Gon Shock the World”… means they are going to shock the world and both go to UK…. #9 will be 04/08/2013 in CATLANTA



  41. Jack

    Im sorry but he put the part of our family there for a reason. Uk is the only one out of line, and the reasons to go there outnumber the reasons to go anywhere else. I was scared beyond words he would end up with ucla or duke but now I am so confident he will be a cat. He just so happened to crop the picture of uks letter to have “part of our family” included along with “you have signed and dated.” whether or not he is striving for attention by doing this, even disregarding the picture, the positive factors of being a wildcat in every way are better than the other two options. Even if he is an “Adidas” kid, theres no way a jersey or shoe brand will determine where you spend a year of your life in college. And everyone is saying that ucla is “close to home” when in reality it’s still a plane ride away as is Kentucky. It’s not like his parents would drive to every home game 800 miles away if he went to ucla. I’m just saying the incentives of being a cat are much greater than the 2 minor reasons you would go to ucla. I hope I’m right and we see 2 more cats on Wednesday at 730, but the world may never know unless one of the family members is a loudmouth and breaks the news. Let’s go cats! Let’s get #9!

    I’m guessing the Duke letter fell out of his car and he accidentally ran over it….thus the corner bend. It’s also possible that he had that shoved in a drawer and thought, “oh crap, I better get the Duke one out too so I can make it interesting.” Puke has no chance. I say UK bound WITH Nerlens “DJ Jazzy Jeff.”

    #3-BP and #8 — I am with both of you. This pic is very intentional. He left UK cut partially off yet kept the ”Family” and “you have signed and dated” telling everyone where he is going. Regardless, as much as some hate this, I LOVE IT. I think it is playful, fun, and shows some creativity. (Of course, if he doesn’t choose UK it will become over-done drama, egotistical, and more derogatory comments.)) So i say: Enjoy your time in the spotlight Shabazz. It all fades too quickly. So Soak it in.

I usually don’t post on here but if you go to Youtube and watch Off to School with Nerlens Noel, Georges Niang and Wayne Selden Part One, at the end of the video they are talking about how they should announce their schools and one of the guys is telling Nerlens he should have “The logo, like UK in the back of his head and then turn around.” I may be reading in to this but could be a sign.

    To be honest… I really don’t care. I feel like the time of “sweating the recruits” ended with Patterson/Lucas. I’M NOT WORRIED ABOUT CALIPARI IN REGARDS TO RECRUITING…EVER. Fact is we already have some very good players, Wiltjer, Harrow, Poythress and Goodwin are starters at any school in America. Add Cauley, Jon Hood, and either Noel, Shabazz, Bennet or Oriakhi and we are Very Good. Add 2 and we are the #1 team in the preseason.

    But if he made the decision last night, could he have called Nerlens Noel and they decided to go to the same place, thus Noel’s tweet last night? Would Noel go to UCLA? I doubt it. I hope this means they are bringing the package deal to UK!

    If Shabazz does commit to UK, I’m afraid it’ll be Enes Kanter all over again. You know a piece of Mark Emmert died inside when he had to present that trophy to Cal in New Orleans. I really can’t see the NCAA resolving any issues with Shabazz in his favor if he’s planning to play at Kentucky. The hate for Calipari runs deep in some people and I’m sure that includes a few people at the NCAA. If Shabazz wants to be eligible to play, his best bet is Duke. They don’t have any problems playing ineligible players there.

    Your wrong #56. It’s gonna be the John Wall situation all over again. Cal knew the deal with Wall, it’s the same with Bazz. He will have to maybe sit a couple games and repay some $$. But then he’ll be clear.

    I can understand picking Duke. Always highly ranked, put lots of players in the NBA, competitive conference, lots of exposure, etc. UCLA would make NO sense unless he’s just a ball hog and wants to shoot 20 shots a night and never be in the hunt for a championship. From what I’ve reada, seen and heard from and about him, that just doesn’t seem the case. If he picks Duke, I’ll be sad, but at least it’s logical. UCLA is irrational. I can’t imagine that if he thought this out, picked based on player development, NBA potential and chance to win a title any place beats UK.

    Seriously, how many players are even given the CHANCE to play at UK? There are guys on Duke’s team that wouldn’t be given a chance to play at UK, and no one on UCLA’s team would even be given a phone call.

    By the way, the kid has game, and a voice like Mike Tyson, but he’s very articulate, and seems personable. I’ll keep respecting him even if he picks Duke, but I will lose respect if he picks UCLA.

Shabazz made his decision last night, and after that around 1130 nerlens says “Gon shock the world!” They must’ve talked, bazz chooses uk, bazz calls nerlens and tells him his choice, nerlens also says he chose uk, nerlens says he’s gon shock the world as in they are doing a package deal to Kentucky.

    This is my last thing. If you look at the picture, why is the school from the ACC logo in the middle and the UK logo in the middle. That is because something was faxed to those schools and they sent something back. DUKE sent back to him, something on the lines of, we wish you the best with your choice of schools, and UK sent back from the basketball department.. look at the picture… We are glad you have chose to become part of our family, after you have signed and dated please fax or mail in NLI to the following… THE UCLA document is the offer paperwork. So he might have called them and told them, he picked UK…. And everybody that says he is selfish and only wants awards for himself, that’s true, he hasn’t went to college yet… he hasn’t practiced with Cal… he’s supposed to feel like that… he’s a kid….

    I can’t compete with you physically, and you are no match for my brains. But its so simple. All i have to divide what I know of you. Are you the sort of man who would put the letter in front of him? Or furthest away? Now, a clever man would put the letter in front of him because only a great fool would choose the letter he was given. I can deduce what I know of you, and clearly I cannot choose the letter in front me. However, you must have guessed that I knew that, therefore I cannot select the letter in front of you.

    You fell victim for one the classic blunders

    We all know you guys are ‘connected’ somewhat to the university. how hard would it be for you to get your hands on a copy of this letter to find out what it actually says? I’m sure it is a template they send to all players.

    Would help in determining if it is simply the status quo or if it was acknowledgement of Shabazz coming to UK. Just a though.

    #72 – Joker is making a JOKE of UK Football so how are we supposed to take it seriously enough to care about it? UK is a Basketball school and ALWAYS will be….

    As for the rest “IN CAL WE TRUST”

    He’s going to UCLA…I hate it, but way she goes. I think Nerlens will land at UK though after seeing what Cal did for AD.

    I fully appreciate the need for moderation of posts, but am perplexed by what was so offensive about expressing a preference of UCLA over Duke for Shabazz if he doesn’t sign with UK, i.e., why was my prior post zapped?

    I would rather he go to Duke. I got a bad feeling about this guy. It would be great for Duke to get the kid and Coach K would get another one and Done, he would play like crap with no team chemistry and Duke would loose early in the NCAA tourny.

    Then in a few years have turn out he was getting payed and have Duke get a season vacated!

    does anyone else think he tweeted this pic out just to stir the pot and that there is no other meaning?

    He is definitely going to one of these three. On a serious note, although clever and cryptic, he gives it away. At first glance it could be any depending on viewpoint. Duke is first from top, Kentucky first left to right, and UCLA first from bottom, or UCLA on top horizontally. All seem disguised at first by the NLI. The NLI, by the way, apparently belonging to Duke based on the paper clip and paper clip marking, should be no concern since he has made his decision and the NLI is not filled out “X in the proper box” next to “basketball (regular period)”. The NLI is only being used as a cover for something/nothing anyway. Kentucky, however, stands out in two important ways. First, if you view all four (NLI, Duke, Kentucky,UCLA) as being stacked diagonally, Kentucky is the one that is pulled out of place for distinction. Second, Kentucky is the only one with a written message, “part of the family” and “you have signed and dated”. However, it is a possibility that it all means nothing and he is messing with our minds. The one scare for Kentucky is that Kentucky and Duke are at similar horizontal levels with UCLA standing proudly above them.

    People on here are ridiculous…… How could you not want him….. He is not selfish at all. He took a lot of shots in some bs games. His motor is crazy; He is MkG with a significantly improved offensive game… Maybe not quite as solid on d as gillie…..he will be eligible and has no serious problems……. I cannot believe how many uk fans are dicks about young kids decisions….. He is a monster and the key to title #9…… Can’t imagine him going anywhere else if national title is truly the goal……..which he has stated….,. I have inside info we get him Noel an Bennett…… I hope my source is right……..lol….. But I truly have a source

    If you look at what he’s shown us through interviews and tweets and make a guess than it has to be uk. This picture prob doesn’t mean anything. The more I think about it the more convinced I am that both these boys are heading to Lexington.
