Oh how recruiting can change! After Kentucky Ink reported last weekend that Terrence Boyd was ready to commit to Kentucky, another blog has found a different likely result. Jody Demling, co-host of Sports Night, reports on his blog today that Boyd may now have lost serious interest in the Cats. According to comments attributed to Boyd by another website, his coaches have told him that Kentucky fans have been “talking mess” and criticizing him in recent weeks. Because of that, Boyd said that Kentucky “may be adios.” In addition, his high school coach has told him that Kentucky said he only had an offer if Daniel Orton came to campus, another fact that if true, according to Boyd, “the adios it definitely will be.”
Pretty interesting stuff…..it shows that these kids do follow what the fans say on message boards (there were a couple of unfortunate comments in one thread I have heard, although I didnt see it myself and dont think they were widespread). Plus it makes one wonder just how solid the offer was to Boyd in the first place, a question that was continually raised to me in my conversations about him. Very interesting developments on this Tuesday…..
