Let’s take a break from watching the Louisville basketball program burn to go over some of the basketball and football recruiting news from the week…


Edrice “Bam” Adebayo will visit Lexington this weekend.

Adebayo, the third-ranked power forward in the 2016 class, will begin his official visit to Kentucky today. John Calipari looks to add one more big man to join Wenyen Gabriel, Sacha Killeya-Jones, Tai Wynyard, Isaac Humphries and potentially a senior Marcus Lee next season, and Adebayo is on the short list of names to take that spot. Harry Giles, Marques Bolden and Jarrett Allen are also options, with Giles being the dream addition.

Wendell Carter may attend Big Blue Madness.

The No. 1 overall player in the 2017 class is considering an appearance at Big Blue Madness next week, he told Cats Illustrated. Carter will definitely attend Duke’s Countdown To Craziness next Saturday, but may sneak into Lexington the night before to check out UK.

Big Blue Madness will be televised live.

In case you missed it earlier, Kentucky basketball’s biggest recruiting event of the year will air live in its entirety on the SEC Network. It will mark the first time Madness has been aired on a national network from start to finish.

Nothing’s changed with Kobi Simmons.

His father told, “There’s no rush, you don’t have to tell anybody a date. If you wake up tomorrow and say this is it, or if you wake up Oct. 3 and say this is it. I don’t want him setting a date because that can make you make a decision that may not be natural.”

With De’Aaron Fox’s recruitment looking positive for Kentucky, Simmons will likely be a take as soon as Cal feels he is losing Malik Monk, if that ever happens. Until then, Simmons will stay in limbo until he gets the call from UK or gets tired of waiting for it.

UK extends scholarship offer to 2017 quarterback Walker Wood of Lexington.

Lafayette High School’s Walker Wood picked up a scholarship offer from the University of Kentucky today. Wood is considered a dual-threat quarterback, ranked No. 23 in his class at that position in the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Wood is a teammate of 2016 commit Landon Young, and Jedrick Willis, one of the top targets in 2017.
