It feels like the writing is already on the wall, but in just a few hours, we’ll know where Matt Haarms is headed.

According to Adam Zagoria, the Purdue grad transfer will announce his decision at noon ET. The 7’3″ center from Amsterdam is down to Kentucky, BYU, and Texas Tech. The momentum has been swinging wildly in this recruitment over the past few days, but right now, BYU is considered the favorite, with folks around Kentucky’s camp telling Jack Pilgrim they are no longer confident and Crystal Ball picks flipping to BYU, including Evan Daniels’.

We’ll find out for sure soon enough.

    Who cares? The guy doesn’t even average double digits in points or rebounds

    Plus he looks a lot like that Russian villain boxer in the Rocky movie

    If true, why not just stay at Purdue? The conference is better, meaning better competition. BYU would be the choice if he just wanted to pat his numbers more before the draft, ultimately not getting drafted anyways. You could avg 6 and 5 here and get drafted. But Cals crunch time recruiting once again is a whiff. Let’s see if he has anything up his sleeve. If not, every team will try to pound us like every yr if they have big men.

    Another year of missing out on top grad transfers

      Another year!? You think Reid Travis and Nate Sestina was missing out?

      Blue….getting Sestina was a huge miss as Kentucky didn’t Blackshear who transferred from Va Tech. College basketball is moving to an all new realm. Now we are left with poaching mid-major talent and for most who are transferring, they were never on Ky’s radar to begin with. Think Cal and the other coaches are going to need a new recruiting strategy to avoid commits deciding to go to G league at last minute.

      Reid was a good pickup. Nate was not.

    This reminds me of the Ulis and Murray team. 2 players are depended on to carry the team in scoring and no good big men. I hope Isaiah or Lance are able to step up

    Nate was a good pick up.. the reason we don’t seem to make final 4s is because we don’t have 4 or 5 experienced role players…. You know when your precious 4 out of 5 freshmen tank in a big game…

    Said same thing for years. You must have experienced players to win a title. A great FR or 2 is awesome but it tajes experienced guys to get titles. 2012 was a nice mix. Look at our next season…….nothing in experience and we know, once again, before the season starts we have no title shot.
