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.
