LSU and Kentucky are two of the perceived frontrunners for combo guard Malik Newman, and today, Newman told Khadrice Rollins at the McDonald’s All-American festivities that although LSU is making a push, whether or not Kentucky’s guards leave for the NBA will play a major role in his decision. As it should.
As a reminder, April 26 is the early entrant deadline for the 2015 draft. Here’s where the Cats are in the latest mock from Draft Express:
1. Karl Towns
6. Willie Cauley-Stein
17. Devin Booker
19. Trey Lyles
39. Dakari Johnson
53. Andrew Harrison
If Kentucky wins the title, I expect all of the Cats will receive a major bump in draft stock, hopefully enough to get Aaron on the board. Until then, fans and recruits just have to sit and wait.
