As we mentioned on the website earlier today, UK women’s basketball coach Matthew Mitchell picked up a commitment during an in-home visit in Bell County last night. Maci Morris, a highly-touted guard in the 2015 class, and her family had Mitchell over to discuss Maci’s future and how she’ll fit in at the University of Kentucky.
And while he was in the Morris home, Coach Mitchell devoured some food.
“He sat down and ate like a mule,” Lewis Morris told the Herald-Leader. “I bet he ate 18 deviled eggs. I called him Cool Hand Luke.”
Mitchell’s country boy approach worked with the Morrises. Lewis Morris said he was easy to talk to and that made Maci feel more comfortable. She ended up committing before he left for the night, picking UK Hoops over schools like Louisville, Marquette and Dayton.
Maybe Mitchell should put away a dozen and a half deviled eggs before every visit.
