Moses Brown will not be an option for Kentucky after all.
The five-star center pledged his commitment to UCLA on Monday, ending an up-and-down relationship with UK on the recruiting trail. John Calipari and his staff had kept a close eye on Brown over the years, but never extended the scholarship offer because they weren’t quite convinced he was the caliber of player they needed. For what it’s worth, Brown really wanted the UK offer and it appears he got tired of waiting for it.
So what does this mean for the Cats? They’ll be more than fine if Nick Richards and Sacha Killeya-Jones return for 2018-19. If not, they’ll need to find a big man, somewhere.
