Isaiah Stewart won’t be signing this week, doesn’t seem too high on Kentucky

Five-star center Isaiah Stewart told that he won’t be signing in the early signing period and is unsure when he will make a final decision on his college choice. The 6-foot-9, 230-pound La Lumiere star is considering UK, Michigan State, Duke, Syracuse and Washington, but when dissecting each school he didn’t seem overly high on the Cats.

  “(The visit to Kentucky) was good. That visit, Kentucky came in pretty late, but I got the chance to go down there and see how they do things and see what they are all about.”

 Stewart was asked what UK’s all aboute:

“It is sort of like a powerhouse, with all of the players that went there in the past and how they have gotten guys to the league. I feel like it is a place that usually, whenever you talk about Kentucky and you are a highly ranked player, it is something that you just have to look at.”

Would ya look at it?

He said Michigan State felt like home, he mentioned Coach K at Duke, he said he would be embraced at Washington and that Syracuse is the hometown team. All seemingly more intimate than “sort of like a powerhouse,” but trying to nitpick recruit’s quotes is a dangerous game. Only once did UK have momentum and it was after his official visit, but a week or two later that buzz was gone. Stewart has officially visited UK, Michigan State, Washington and Syracuse. He’s still planning an official to Duke but is unsure when he will make it Durham.

Stranger things have happened but it seems like the Cats are on the outside looking in when it comes to Stewart’s recruitment. Read the entire interview HERE.

      Would not blame them after what the world saw last week.

      Maybe Carey and Stewart, but Cole cut Duke.

    Put yourself in the shoes of a top flight recruit. You watch the much anticipated game between Kentucky and Duke and Kentucky is annihilated and shown to be inferior in terms of players, preparation, effort, execution, and coaching. Honestly, why would an elite recruit want to be part of a program that looked so impotent?

      Coach K players have consistently underperformed their rankings in college and pro ball. If it was results, he’d never coach another 5-star player.

      The only one who became a star was Kyrie Irving, who hardly even played at Duke.

      It looks like the class he has now will live up to their ranking

    He’s my favorite big of the bunch not as versatile as wiseman but hostile!

    Lasting impressions on the 2019 class were made years ago by Boogie, Ant, KAT, Wall, Fox, MKG & D Book as well as their contemporaries at other schools. The lasting impressions on future recruits will be made in March and April. This November stuff will last until each team’s first loss of the season. Yes, the team that already beat us will lose this season. One or more of those three players will have off nights at the same time as their backups. ACC teams and coaches may or may not be as good as their SEC counterparts but there are more than a few ACC teams that are good enough to take them down, especially on an off night.

      I know the 2015 Final Four didn’t help, but I’m curious to know what K says to these top-tier recruits to disinterest them from Kentucky? Starting with Harry Giles and Jayson Tatum, Bagley, Barrett and now possibly Stewart and Carey. These are guys that Cal has been high on and has put in TONS of work in on to only get pushed to the side. I don’t think Bagley even made it to campus. But, the results are pretty much identical since that Final Four. CATS
