Miles Bridges’ recruitment reaches panic mode for BBN.
By now you’ve heard we’ve lost all that confidence we once had in Kentucky landing Miles Bridges, the third-ranked small forward in the class. Word on road is Bridges simply enjoyed his official visit to Michigan State more than his official visit to Kentucky. What can you do? (I blame Draymond Green.)
Now it’s up to Calipari and Kentucky to make up lost ground in these final two weeks, or surrender Bridges to the Spartans when he announces on October 3. There’s still a chance it could be Kentucky in the end, but if the decision were today, Michigan State is the likely pick.
Calipari is visiting Harry Giles today.
Last night, De’Aaron Fox. Today, Harry Giles.
Coach Cal will check in with the nation’s No. 1 recruit today. It’s Cal’s second time meeting with Giles in the last week. The two chatted around this time last week at Giles’ Oak Hill Academy.
Giles will be in Lexington for Big Blue Madness in 25 days.
Edrice “Bam” Adebayo is becoming a primary target.
Adebayo will also get a visit from Calipari today as he climbs up the Cats’ priority list in the 2016 recruiting class. As is the case with Giles, Calipari met with Adebayo around this time last week and he is back again today for more.
Adebayo did not receive a scholarship offer from UK until late in the summer, but the staff is moving quickly with making him feel wanted in Lexington. He hopes to visit campus soon.
Wenyen Gabriel will officially visit Kentucky this weekend.
The No. 4 power forward in the 247 Sports Composite plans to take his official visit to Kentucky this coming weekend. If Miles Bridges soon picks Michigan State, Gabriel becomes an even bigger name on UK’s list.
It will likely come down to the home state Maryland Terps and the Wildcats in the end for Gabriel. Maryland is the presumed leader for now, but the upcoming trip to Lexington will be his first time seeing the kingdom. That can certainly change his mindset.
He is hosting Duke today for an in-home.
Russ Yeast now a four-star prospect on Scout.com.
Scout.com recently updated its 2017 player rankings and UK commit Russ Yeast earned his fourth star in the change. Yeast is now the 26th-ranked athlete in the nation, a four-star prospect, and the No. 2 athlete in the midwest. The son of former UK star Craig Yeast, he will play wide receiver once he arrives in Lexington for the 2017 season.
Yeast recently visited Ohio State, but he insists he is 100 percent committed to the Wildcats.
Now go out and buy a new mattress. Seriously. I’m tired of watching you yawn all day.
