American Airlines Flight 5520 delivered Mohamed Bamba to Lexington last night around 11:43 pm to begin his official visit to the University of Kentucky. Yes, it is weird that I know that — but don’t act like you’re not excited to have the five-star big man on campus, too.
Back to what I was saying, Bamba is taking his official visit to Kentucky this weekend with a lot of outside noise–namely his friends Quade Green and Hamidou Diallo–steering him toward a UK commitment. Just last week, 247 Sports’ Jerry Meyer switched his prediction for Bamba from Duke to Kentucky due to those relationships, and Kentucky pursuing him with “more fervor.”
Bamba’s current trip to Lexington is his second this basketball season; he took an unofficial visit to Big Blue Madness back in October.
It sure would be nice to see him go ahead and pull the trigger on a commitment and blow off that visit to Duke next month.
Get in here, Mo.
