Two of UK’s top 2015 targets are visiting UCLA today: Jaylen Brown and Brandon Ingram.
Brown’s visit may the most worrisome, since he said this past weekend that the Bruins’ affiliation with adidas could give them an advantage in his recruitment. Brown’s EYBL team is sponsored by adidas, and he’s said that going to an adidas school is very appealing to him. Hmm. Calipari and the staff are very high on Brown, and are pushing to get him on campus for Big Blue Madness on October 18, especially because of the rumors Brown wants to commit on his birthday, October 24. Currently, his list includes Kentucky, UCLA, Kansas, Georgia, and Alabama.
Meanwhile, UCLA isn’t considered a frontrunner for Ingram, the 4th best small forward in the 2015 class (247 Sports Composite). Duke and North Carolina are the favorites for the North Carolina native, but Ingram told ZagsBlog yesterday that he “definitely” plans to take an official visit to Kentucky and Kansas. He’ll visit Duke this upcoming weekend.
Don’t enjoy yourselves too much today, boys. Hopefully Pauley’s still a little mildewy after last week’s flood:
