Jamal Murray’s father confirms he is taking his official visit to UK right now


Last night, a report came out from Canadian recruiting guru Elias Sbiet that Jamal Murray was on an official visit to Kentucky. No offense to Elias Sbiet, but I felt a lot better this morning when I saw Murray’s father confirm the news to’s Chris Fisher and Adam Zagoria.

Zagoria also spoke with Murray’s coach at Orangeville Prep, Larry Blunt, who compared the five-star shooting to Jason Kidd:

“He’s a walking triple-double with size like Jason Kidd but a much better scorer,” Blunt told “He’s super competitive with a will to win like Mike [Jordan] and Kobe [Bryant]. He does not like to lose anything. Video games, kick ball, checkers, chess, class. Jamal wants to win in everything. He’s hyper-competitive.”

Sounds good to me. Enjoy your stay, Jamal.

    Gotta have this kid. Did I read correctly that he’s either considering UK for a year or another year of HS ball in Canada, then going straight to the League? Come on kid, no brainer here. Come be a stud. With Kentucky fans and Canadians all on his bandwagon, he’ll be the most popular rookie in the NBA next year.
