    Interesting. Recruiting is weird and dishonest.

    Thank you for sharing.

    basketball has become a soap opera with the drama it brings. I don’t get the reasoning for his dad being untruthful about the visit. I mean I read what he said, but it doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense.

    1. Realme

      Yeah, that reasoning makes no sense.

    2. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

      Maybe it’s because Cal didn’t want Nick or EJ to feel pressure to immediately make a final decision about leaving or staying.

    3. StillBP

      EJ had already declared over the weekend and Nick declared the same day the visit happened. Neither have to make a final decision about staying/leaving for weeks and the cat would be out of the bag about the visit before then anyway (clearly, as it is out of the bag now). Still doesn’t make sense to me. But the good news is that it doesn’t really have to make sense to me lol

      EJ declared before the weekend, not over the weekend, I meant to say

    If Cal asked the family to deny the report and they did…you have to assume that bodes well.

    KB, the BBN wants you. You could be the final piece of a Championship run. Practicing and playing in an environment that will develop your skills to full potential is priceless. We may be biased but our history of preparing players for the next level speaks for itself. ALL OUR PLAYERS are BMOC. Come on down. You won’t regret it.

      ??? yeah we’re making a championship run with no experience, mediocre guard play, potentially 2 big men. LOL.

    I would love to see him join uk and ej and nick stay that plus Nate would be an awesome front court play each one about 15-20 each keeps em fresh and explosive plus limits injuries. I would have Nate at 4 nick at the 5 then switch out with jr at the 4 and ej 5. Plus hopefully that gives ej and nick enough confidence to stay another year if need be

    IF we are fortunate and get both Juzang and Blackshear Jr. we may me in the (fortunate) position to have a squad worthy of platooning again. I know some people hated it (I didn’t) but we will 10 legitimate players who on paper deserve playing time:
    PG: Hagans, Quickley
    SG: Maxey, Juzang
    SF: Whitney, Brooks
    PF: EJ, Sestina
    C: Blackshear Jr, Richards

    That would be an unbelievably deep roster.

      I loved the platoon. It was a thing of beauty.

    2. UKBigBlueForever

      I loved the platoon too. but I don’t even honestly like thinking about that year, I was depressed for like 2 weeks. “If they would’ve called the shot-clock violation on Wisconsin” would the game have turned out differently? I think if Ulis got more PT, we would’ve beat Wisconsin and ended up 40-0. But the Platoon was a GREAT problem to have and most definitely would welcome it once again! I just want an early loss, even if just 1 loss lol, so the heartbreak isn’t as bad if we don’t win the whole thing.

    3. WatchutalkinboutWillis

      The problem with the platoon then was we didn’t have a true SF type player. Maybe James Young but he played the 2. Poythress and Lyles weren’t good for those roles. This team wouldn’t have that problem at all. Give me

      SG-Brooks(Told by Cal he would be used like Knox was)

    4. Skooms

      James Young wasn’t on that team.

    5. Skooms

      And Poythress sat out pretty much the entire year with a torn ACL. Come on man, step up your UK history game! Lol jk

  8. UKBigBlueForever

    He would be a HUGE get for us. He’s like an experienced EJ, or at least that’s kind of what I saw with the glimpses of him I have seen.

    Who does everyone else think he compares to? Looks like he’s got great passing vision too.

  9. BobbyBlue

    Kid may have handlers that are not pro Ky for whatever reason and it was done secretly to block them getting involved.
    It has happened before over the years with cancelled,visits the result.

  10. Ridge Runner

    If we do get him, Hope his dad isn’t a weird-dad for distraction purposes only.

  11. VirginiaCat

    Suggest that we give the father the benefit of the doubt. Keep in mind that things that are relayed second and third hand often get jumbled. It sounds like his intent was to be respectful and that is good enough for me until it’s proven otherwise.
