Cliff Alexander Won’t Be at UK

ChicagoHoops.com recently interviewed Kentucky target and 2014 big man Cliff Alexander, who said that he is dropping UK from his list.  Alexander has officially cut UK from his list, and will now be choosing between Kansas, Memphis, Illinois, Michigan State, Arizona and DePaul.  For a bit this could have seemed like bad news, but then word came out this afternoon that the drop occurred because UK has stopped recruiting the top 10 big man.

With UK also pursuing Power Forward Trey Lyles, I think this news most likely represents the belief that Lyles will be a commit in the near future.

    I think Rupp said it best in cases such as this. So be it.

    Calipari definitely told cliff he is not a good fit for kentucky and took him off UKs list.

    I do not know a single rational person that thinks Cal did not want Alexander. He did. The thing is, Cal spread out his grasp on this class. UK is in the running for a lot more players. Cal recognized the problem of a short bench last year, and does not want that to occur again.

    The only thing I will say about the timing of UK’s early cut is that Cal might of recognized his inability to get Alexander, so he backed off him to focus on others.

    Saw this kid play a couple times in person. Really wanted him as a Cat. He’s just 6’7 1/2″ or 6’8″ at the most. He plays much bigger because he has freaky broad shoulders and long, long arms. Physically he’s just like Anthony Bennett. He’ll be a great college player, but Cal will get us better. Reminds me of what went down with Quincy Miller.

    lol at louisville fans still using that stupid L1c4. that is the dumbest thing ever and only ul fans would actually run with something like that. It’s just as creative as their nicknames they give out, Earl Clark-E5 Terrence williams- T Will. Those ul fans sure are smart, someone please let them know they only humiliate themselves every time they throw up a L or say L1c4. smh

    Cliff Alexander = Chris Walker. Something’s not right. I agree with 3-6. It wasn’t his choice. Cal quit on the other half of the package deal – JaQuan Lyle.

    Isn’t Alexander part of some “package” deal with Winslow or another?

    Good for Cal. Screw these package deals. More bad than good can come from them.

    I dropped UK because they stopped recruiting me, I dropped UofL because I don’t want to spend 4 years in school just to get drafted in the mid to late Second Round of the Draft. Oh & UofL fans are super annoying/stupid too, who wants to look mentally challenged holding up the universal sign for “loser” all the time?

    @5 Cliff himself said UK stopped recruiting him, so yeah, apparently Cal didn’t for one reason or another. Our program can pick & chose, yours tries to pick but almost always loses.

    Love how we make fun of others when they lose a kid and say “we did not want him” or we” stopped recruiting him” but then our site does the same thing. If the kid called Cal Monday and said he wants to come here he would be here. He cut us because he made his mind up of another school he wants to go to, package deal or not. BBall teams are only 12-15 players with 6 to 9 of them really playing meaningful minutes so we can’t get players 1-25 each year. Class still looks like it will be solid and some of this years guys will be back.

    Note to UL fans: Calipari not recruiting Cliff Alexander anymore is not good news for you. *cough Trey Lyles cough*

    @18 Nice try lol
    Smart UofL fans don’t come here to troll because they know their place & that there is a big gap in titles between their program & ours.
