There’s been some buzz that five-star guard Scottie Lewis is nearing a decision and the Florida Gators have the momentum. Kentucky is not going down without a fight. According to Adam Zagoria, Tony Barbee visited Lewis today at his school in New Jersey. Florida assistant Darris Nichols will visit him tomorrow.

As TJ said in his Insider Notes yesterday, Lewis will attend the USA Basketball Men’s Junior Minicamp in Colorado Springs this weekend. If Barbee can convince him to hold off on a decision this week, that’s good news for Kentucky, as Lewis will be surrounded by UK commits Tyrese Maxey and Kahlil Whitney, and fellow UK targets Isaiah Stewart, James Wiseman, etc. If he sets his announcement for before then, probably not a great sign for the Cats.

No need to rush, Scottie.

    Love to have the kid, but if his heart is elsewhere, go on and sign with Florida. We’ll be fine.

    There is such a thing as over-reacting or over-reaching. Also, if the most important portion of the visit is to see the look in a young man’s eyes when he sees a representative of the program, it really doesn’t matter which assistant makes the visit.

    Doesn’t sound like Florida is sending the head coach either.

    Please don’t mock Barbee. He’s a former SEC head coach! The only other SEC head coach on UK’s staff is Coach Cal. I might take your side in an argument about whether another assistant or associate head coach has more cachet with fans but Barbee is a huge asset to this program.

    All the signs sure point to UK especially since we aren’t talking to any other wings and will need another body next year. This to me is always the biggest sign we are getting a guy.
