University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

WATCH: Kahlil Whitney’s Commitment Video

Shortly after news broke online of Kahlil Whitney’s commitment to UK, he released a two-minute video explaining his decision. After thanking friends, family and the schools that recruited him, Whitney rocked Kentucky blue.

“My family and I have truly found the best option for me to continue my development, not only as a student and a basketball player, but also as a man.  With that said, I am thrilled to announce that I have committed to THE University of Kentucky.”

That’s just a tease.  Here’s a little bit of what kind of game he will bring with him to Lexington.

    That’s 2 guys in a row that just made their commitments instead of announcing their intention to announce when they will announce their decision. Great video, great way to do it.

      Exactly my thoughts! Funny how most these, kids want the extra “buzz” announcing their intention on so and so, date to announce when 99.9% have already made up their mind. I really like this, kid something about him, spells ” SPECIAL!”

    That was an amazing video. I try not to get too caught up in the decisions made by kids, but that one got me. 36 years on this earth, 36 years of bleeding blue. In the beginning when he talks about making the “basketball” decision in life, it choked me up. Reason #23,452 nothing beat UK basketball! Welcome man, we are happy to have you!

    It was the foot washing videos that got to his Mama, she saw a bunch of young boys learning to be men.

    Jefferies just a distant memory…..any player who would pass on an opportunity to play in this program for a place like Memphis is not UK material to begin with.

      Exactly, and that’s why that decommit didn’t bother me one bit. Better to do it now than to flake off later, so I do kind of appreciate that, but no regrets at all.

    This guy is going to be an out of this world talent if he puts in the work. I’ve gotten excited over John wall, Boogie, Anthony davis, Karl towns and Hami. This guy fits in there. He can be a superstar if he wants it.
