Kentucky makes the cut for Scottie Lewis


After making some interesting comments about Kentucky this morning, five-star guard Scottie Lewis included the Cats in his final seven, along with St. John’s, Florida, Harvard, Villanova, Duke, and Stanford:

In case you missed it this morning, the 6’4″ 170 lbs. shooting guard said he would only come to Kentucky if he wanted to be a “one-and-done, basketball only type of guy.”

“That is Kentucky. If I choose to be one of those players that is a one-and-done, basketball only type of guy, Kentucky is definitely the school that I will be headed to. All of the schools we have talked about, they will hopefully be in that list of schools that I get down to once I make a cut list, but they are always texting me and giving me pointers about what I can do better.”

Judging by his list, Lewis clearly values academics, and while Kentucky may seem like a “basketball only” type of school, I would remind him of Brandon Knight and Karl Towns, two scholarly stars.

Regardless, for the time being, the Cats are still in the running.

Scottie Lewis says he will go to UK if he’s a ‘basketball only type of guy’

    How does Harvard keep ending up in some highly ranked guys final lists and such? None of these guys are going to school long enough for that education

    I did not like his comment about Kentucky, but then I saw his highlight… Say what you want, buddy, just wear blue while you’re saying it.

    I didn’t see anything at all even slightly off putting about his comments. To me it seemed positive and complimentary
