Kentucky’s already picked up three commitments in the 2017 class in the past five days, but could they pick up a few more before the early signing period ends on Wednesday? Five-star wing Lonnie Walker was scheduled to take an official visit to Syracuse this weekend, but didn’t, sparking some buzz that his recruitment may be coming to an end. Walker, who visited UK last weekend despite being ill with strep throat, is down to Arizona, Kentucky, Miami, Syracuse, and Villanova. Arizona still holds a commanding lead in Walker’s 247 Sports Crystal Ball, with 87% of the predictions; however, only two picks have been made this month.
There was already speculation Walker could announce during the early signing period, and this cryptic tweet he sent out last night has added to that:

Of course, Walker’s a high school kid, so that tweet could have been about what to eat for dinner or which shoes to wear to school on Monday, but still, something to keep an eye on…
