Troy Williams will announce tomorrow

2013 wing Troy Williams will announce his decision tomorrow afternoon on Twitter. Williams said he didn’t want to have a big press conference because he’d rather do it from home, “after school probably.”

Williams is down to North Carolina and Kentucky.

He’s the No. 7 overall player in the class, according to Scout.com

    Will Cal provide again? Seems like him these days.

    And imagine if we get a lot of recruits like Troy then the NBA announces the 2-and-done rule. Undefeated ’13 Cats.

    Rumor is UNC. That sucks. I figured so when he retweeted all of the unc fans saying come to UNC. I’ve seen a total of like 20 retweets of UNC in the past few weeks and only like 6 UK retweets. I feel that Roy is getting troy tomorrow….

    Are we sure we want this kid? Do we have an official KRS Wish List for 2013? What role would he fill?

    I hear hes committing to Louisville if Rick will accept him.

    You always want a top 10 kid, but he plays the same position as Jabari Parker. Really want him! Wish list: Harrison twins, Parker and Randle. Go get ’em, Cal!

    I would say the must gets as of now for ’13 are…

    Jimmie Taylor
    Harrison twins
    Wiggins (If he classifies for ’13).

    He is announcing on Twitter and not ESPN because “I don’t want all that attention”. That should tell you everything you need to know about this decision. Enjoy Roy’s handcuffs, Troy.

    Cals class will be

    Parker
    Harrison twins
    Taylor
    Randle or Wiggins if he re classifies

    Biggest difference between us and UNC: James Michael McAdoo. This kid has been a stud since high school, won multiple MVP’s of national high-school games, and got little to no attention and is coming back. Now look at MKG. Roughly the same potential as JMM coming out of high school, also dominated All-American games, and is projected in the Top 3 in the draft. You could argue UNC had more high-level players that shadowed him, but it’s the coaches job to bring out potential in their players, which Calipari exceeds at (see Harrelson, Liggins, Miller, Lamb, Wiltjer next year)

    Viren – thats the most likely explanation.

    This the same Viren from Middlesboro? Whats up man its Jon G. Hope youre well!

    Anyway, Id like to have this kid too. Would MUCH rather have Jabari Parker and theyre basically down to the same two schools…but you never wanna close a top 10 kid. Hope he chooses us!

    If he wants to play only a small amount his freshman year, and come back to play a major role he needs to go to Carolina aka: Harrison Barnes. (Also, if you want to drop in the Draft, Carolina is the place to go!)

    Rumors said Nerlens to Georgetown too!!!
    Haven’t you learned?

    Troy is going to go where he wants to go. If its Kentucky- then welcome aboard!!!
    Simple as that.

    Jabari has grown to 6-9. Going to go to a Illinois school. Don’t know why, but he wants to pull a Shabazz.

    Randle
    Harrison twins
    Chris walker at center
    Taylor & Williams.
    Willis

    That would be a great class!

    14 totally agree- cal would have had Mcadoo dominating!!!



  21. Calipari's Blue Ballers

    Barnes is a good example of how Cal developes players & Roy developes players. I think Williams does a good job but Cal is on another level as far as accelerating a players growth. He just gets results faster which gets them to the league sooner rather than later. Barnes will go high in the draft but at least 2 Kentucky players will go higher. That’s more money so you have to consider that in deciding your future as a top prospect.

    I have a feeling the Heels will be getting Troy. First of all, Cal wants Jabari, and him and Troy play the same position – Jabari’s way better though. The second and most important thing is Roy and Troy rhyme, no that’s not it, Roy and Troy’s uncle are really close and have been. Bye Bye, Troy Williams….Hello, Jabari! It’s all good

    I don’t think Cal cares much about positions from what I’ve read he cares about talent. I understand the kids may think in different terms. One thing I am sure of is this will all work out.

    Hopefully a tweet day for UK. UK is at the point it can pick and choose players. Cal has the Ferrari purring along at 189 in the Fast Lane. Rick is broke down at the Watterson and I-64 in his 86 Camaro.

    I’m having a hard time keeping these guys straight. Can we get a KSR 2013 UK Recruiting guide for tomorrow? It’d be great to know where to look next regardless of his decision. Come on down buddy!

    He’s going to UNC…and that’s what we want. James Young is ready to be a Cat and is blowing up, while Williams has fallen off a bit. We already have the offer on the table to Troy, but prefer he choose UNC so we can get Young, who we now prefer. Btw, before you ask, there isn’t room to take both. Expect an offer to Young soon.



  31. BNClay

    Vibe seems to be that he will Go to UNC. Good luck to him. I also think the McAdoo guy will be a stud next year for UNC. Better than Barnes was.

    #22: you got it backwards, Cal is good friends w/ Troy’s uncle, Boo. He said it in a video I watched today.

    Kid reminds me of Evan Turner, with a higher basketball IQ.



  34. SagaciousMind

    19, you smokin crack? Chris Walker is not a center and Cal does not want that kid. Chris Walker only becomes a Cat if every other option falls through. He may be top ten talent, but his attitude has to seriously change before he gets an offer. As for Williams, even if we dont get him there is always Parker, Young, and now maybe Wiggins. Williams isnt a must have. He’s awful thin too. I like the MKG style sfs, the ones who will bang down low for rebounds, Williams isnt one. If he’s a Cat, welcome aboard, if not, oh well.

    Why so many posts saying, “He’s a UNC lock for sure?” Is it because you guys don’t want to feel badly if he chooses another school other than UK and you can say, “See, I told you so?” Nerlens was going to G-Town too…remember?? NOBODY knows until tomorrow when the kid announces.

    Boo said, “Troy may grow another 3-4 inches and be a 4 not a 3 at Carolina. ” he’s going to UNC. I know 2013 will be a loaded class but missing on the first top 10 target isn’t a great start.

    40. RELAX! It’s the start we prefer. We want Young over Williams. We offered Williams long ago and now Young is proving to be the better player of late. When he says UNC Cal will be fist pumping. Not that Troy isn’t damn good, but Young is better and still on the rise.

    THE REASON ALL THE UK JERKS ARE SAYING HE SHOULD GO ELSE WHERE IS THAT IF HE OESNT WANT TO COMPETE THEN UNC IS THE PLACE. WE ALSO KNOW WHAT A AWESOME BALL PLAYER LOOKS LIKE MAYBE YOU SHOULD INFORM ROY WILLIAMS WHEN HE BACKED OFF HIM WHEN HE WAS IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD. YOU MAN IF YOU WANT TO COME AND COMPETE AN HAVE THE BB NATION BACK YOU THEN COME. IF YOU THINK THE WORLD SHOULD BE HANDED TO YOU GO TO UNC. WE ARE TRULY BLUE COLLAR AROUND HERE.
