De’Aaron Fox will visit for Big Blue Madness

Big Blue Madness just went from big to huge. According to Chris Fisher, De’Aaron Fox, the number one point guard in a loaded 2016 class, will visit UK for Big Blue Madness on October 16. Fox is considered the second best prospect in the entire 2016 class by 247 Sports.

Kobi Simmons’ official visit to Kentucky this past weekend reportedly went very well, but there are rumblings John Calipari is also extremely interested in Fox, creating a bit of a dilemma at point guard. Kentucky is considered the frontrunner for the 6’4″ Texas native, and getting him on campus for the biggest recruiting event of the year is a huge development.

If you’re keeping track, here’s the guest list for BBM so far:

  • Harry Giles
  • De’Aaron Fox
  • Malik Monk
  • Miles Bridges
  • Rawle Alkins (tentative)
  • Sacha Killeya-Jones (COMMITTED)

    The goal is to get Ulis and Briscoe to get pro consideration this year so there is plenty of room for 2 PGs.
    It happened this year where we got 2 new PGs with Ulis returning, but that is not a realistic approach each year.

      Playing with another really great guard worked out pretty well for Wall & Bledsoe.

      Some are saying NC State is his front runner. I think Cal would prefer Fox then Smith, then Simmons. But at Simmons size I dont think it would be a stretch to say he could play the 3 spot. Cal has to sell these guys on the fact that he has 3 guards playing this year and he is going to make it work. If these guys dont commit anywhere before the season, hopefully Cal has success with them during the season and prove to these guys it can work. Especially since you have guys like Monk out there.

    Rawle > K.Simmons.

    I’m telling you from watching both, Simmons wants to be the man takes terrible shots A LOT, Rawle can pass and score overall is just more of a team guy and a knockdown shooter. The three guards we need are Fox, Monk and Rawle.
