Jason Jordan from USA Today dropped by Kentucky Sports Radio radio this morning to tell us what all he knows about UK’s recent visitors: Tyler Ulis, Devin Booker and Jahlil Okafor.
Jordan told Matt there is no reason to think Ulis will end up anywhere other than Kentucky when he announces Friday night and that Ulis will be eating pancakes, his favorite food, in the Wildcat Lodge next year from Chef Chris.
“Definitely going to be at Kentucky,” he said of the point guard. “I don’t see why he wouldn’t be.”
But things aren’t so crystal clear when it comes to Devin Booker. Jordan said UK is in great position, but don’t sleep on Missouri. Booker’s dad played at Mizzou, he’s a legend there, and Frank Haith’s staff is on him very, very, hard.
“Nothing is done with Devin, he has to play the whole process out. But Kentucky took its shot and scored a 10.”
And Jahlil Okafor — things are still looking good for Duke, although it’s not over until it’s over in recruiting, especially when Calipari is involved. Jordan said Okafor really, really, really likes Calipari and UK has a shot, but Duke is in the driver’s seat and no one disagrees with that.
Thanks to Jason for coming on the show. We need ballsier predictions next time, though.
