University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

KyKy Tandy, remember him?

Remember KyKy Tandy, the talented guard out of Hopkinsville? The one whose dad probably ruined his shot at a Kentucky offer with his “he’s not going with three or four point guards there” comment?

Yeah, him. We have an update on his basketball future.

Tandy committed to Xavier on Tuesday, choosing the Cincinnati school over Ole Miss. Tandy is the third-ranked player in the state of Kentucky going into his senior season at University Heights Academy and he announced via Twitter he will leave the state for college to be a Musketeer:

There was a time last spring when many UK fans, especially those in Western Kentucky, hoped Tandy would earn and accept an offer to stay home in the Bluegrass, but he never became a priority for Coach Cal’s staff. (I wrote about that in detail back in May: Why hasn’t Kentucky offered KyKy Tandy?) The staff instead pursued another in-state target, Dontaie Allen, and Tandy was left behind.

Now he’s off to the Big East next summer, but he’ll probably lead the state in scoring in his senior season first.

Good luck to him.

      I am assuming he will be going there on an athletic scholarship, not an academic one?

    LOL….Xavier fans must(keteer) be so proud of their new commit. Not only was Cal never going to offer this kid because his ignorant dad went all LaVar Ball on UK, but Cal must have also known the kid wasn’t too bright either.

      KyKy’s Dad is not ignorant, he was just looking out for his Son like any good parent would do. He could have worded it differently, but he is far from ignorant. I know KyKy’s family and they are good people, they might not bleed blue, but good people.

      Yes, his father was ignorant for making the comments he made. It was an ignorant thing to do. One would have to be ignorant to not think so.

      @katfan33 you are a ignorant keyboard gangster. You know nothing about me or KyKy and his family. I’m not hard to find.

  4. So I’m guessing all you Mensas have never made a spelling mistake on a text, tweet, etc? Come on. Give the kid a break. I can spell but these virtual keyboards are the worst sometimes.

    Good luck KyKy!

      I agree. Wish him luck and move on. No need to vilify the kid.
