Cliff Alexander’s coach insists UK’s still in the hunt


After Cliff Alexander decided not to take an official visit to Kentucky this fall, many thought the Cats had fallen out of the hunt for the talented power forward. However, Alexander’s high school coach Mike Oliver told the Herald-Leader’s Ben Roberts that’s definitely not the case:

“At this point, he wants to visit someplace he’s never been,” Oliver said. “It’s easy to get him down to Kentucky. And Kentucky’s always going to be at the top of the list.

Alexander visited UK for Big Blue Madness last year, and Oliver says he thinks Kentucky’s still in Alexander’s top three. Michigan State has also been considered a leader for Alexander, along with Kansas. Why Kansas? Alexander’s girlfriend will be a freshman on the Jayhawks’ women’s basketball team this fall, and if you go by the “Boo Rule,” that makes them a clear leader going in to the clubhouse.

Lots of pretty ladies in Lexington, too…

    Not to be mean or anything but Kentucky girls are not pretty. There are some pretty ones scattered throughout the state but overall I wouldn’t consider it a pretty girl state.

    She said Lexington, not kentucky as a whole.

    Wow, have you ever been on UK’s campus? Pretty girls everywhere. Not necessarily from Kentucky – but on campus…there are a lot of them.

    You are in lala land…..Lexington girls with uk campus obviously included are some of the best looking girls in the world….I have pretty much been to every state and can say that with confidence about the girls compared to the rest of US….people get so confused about eastern ky and lumping Kentucky as a whole into that category…..

    If he’s acting like he’s got a ring in his nose & following a split-tail around this early in life, I feel sorry for him. It just makes it twice as bad that it’s Kansas. But good lord guy, grow a pair, go out & see the world before you get tied down. Hopefully you won’t do something that stupid straight out of high school.

    I know AD is dating one of the Gonzalez twins, is he dating the other by any chance?

    If his girlfriend is going to Kansas count him a Jayhawk.

    There are gorgeous girls all over Ky. Lexington, Louisville, Bowling Green, Glasgow, Franklin, Owensboro, and scattered everywhere else. I’m sure #1 is a real prize. Let’s see your picture and we’ll judge you.

    Oh my God,this will devastate the “sky is falling” crowd,that permeates most UK boards. They think Cliff is going anywhere but UK…

    I worked for the Lexington Post Office for a while
    Guys that had routes downtown and around UK NEVER gave them up for one reason. Too much beauty to be seen. Spring was always anxiously anticipated.
    Kansas Women’s Basketball seemed to have an attraction for a couple of the men’s recruits. Wiggins? I don’t think, after seeing the article and pictures, that Kentucky Hoops are second to anybody.

    #4 your a D-bag! Girls from eastern KY are hot! The stories of being toothless and bare footed are BS! Dumb asses like you keep that foolishness going! People from EKY are no different then the rest of the state! Your a joke to hide behind a screen name making such BS comments!

    I drove down to Atlanta to watch the Indiana and Baylor games last year. We stopped at the mall in Lexington to pick up some new UK gear. Wow. Beautiful women everywhere. Ohio sucks.

    Alexander is playing in Marshall Co Hoopfest this year. Not surprised his coach would say UK is definitely in top 3. Helps attendance and interest in their games in KY. He knows how passionate BBN is.

    My guess is this kid is going to Mich. State. It’s ok because Cal will bring in a good class, plus I think next year will be a rare case where a lot returns. This years team is LOADED there is no way all of them can get the PT to go pro. So missing on a kid like this won’t hurt as much as it normaly does. I think this is clear because Cal is working so hard on the 2015 class already!
