Is Thon Maker down to Kentucky and Indiana? (UPDATE: No)

Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 1.35.01 PM

You’re looking at a picture from Thon Maker’s Facebook account, or what is reportedly Thon Maker’s Facebook account. (I hate to think that someone would catfish an 18-year-old, but we live in a sick world sometimes.) This afternoon, Thon posted this picture of an Indiana football jersey and a UK basketball jersey with the caption “Which way? Hoosiers or Wildcats?”.

If this is really Thon, that means he’s cut Arizona State and Kansas from his list, a big development considering Jerry Meyer just tweeted this morning that he feels very confident in his Arizona State pick. As we told you last night, it’s looking more and more likely that Thon will reclassify to 2015, but won’t be eligible until the second semester. If so, will he be a Hoosier or a Wildcat?

For your own sake, pick Kentucky, Thon. Tom Crean’s the kind of creepy you can’t wash off if you try.

UPDATE: As expected, the Thon Maker Facebook account is a fake. People are sick.

    Facebook was ruined when it opened up to people who didn’t have a college email account. Now it is a cesspool of meme’s and 40-60 year old’s shitposts.

    When was the last time a recruit put up news on FACEBOOK. This seems laughably fake. And a football jersey?

    With 7 players leaving we shouldn’t be in the buiness of turning down recruits but can we just pass on him?

    Thon Maker would be a great addition to the family. I see him as a very similar player to a guy down the road in Smellville…Mangok Mathiang. He will no doubt be sort of a project for a year or maybe two. I think if he can qualify to play by Spring 2016, then maybe it would be best if Cal actually uses a red-shirt on him.

    Well that FB account has been active since 2011. So may very well be him.

    From he looks of the jerseys, he’s down to IU football or UK basketball. Seems like that would be a no-brainer!

    Thon, if you want to learn what it takes to play in the NBA; play for Coach Calipari and UK. Crean just doesn’t have the coaching ability or connections to make you a 1st round NBA pick. Just being truthful young man.
