It’s Tuesday afternoon, you know what that means? Sleep Outfitters’ Recruiting Roundup! Yeah!

Today we’re going all basketball…

De’Aaron Fox’s announcement should be coming any time now.

De’Aaron Fox will soon let the world know the date of his announcement, possibly as early as this week. We already know he plans to end his recruitment some time before the first game of his senior season on November 16 and that’s now less than two weeks away. Expect him to make his move before Signing Day on November 11.

John Calipari was in Texas late last week to double-check on his presumed future point guard. It would take a miracle for anyone to steal him away from Kentucky at this point.

Malik Monk took his official visit to Arkansas over the weekend.

The same Arkansas that is in competition with Kentucky at the top of Monk’s list for his services. Here he is watching practice during his visit:



Monk needs to keep chatting with Fox about teaming up at Kentucky. That sounds much better than being a one-man show at Arkansas next season.

Jarrett Allen to visit Kentucky this weekend.

The sixth-ranked power forward in the 247 Composite Rankings plans to take his official visit to Lexington this coming weekend, according to Evan Daniels. He was scheduled to visit last week, but chose to check out the University of Houston instead.

He told, “I’m not sure what to expect from Kentucky’s campus yet. What I like about them is the high level of basketball that they play every game and even in practice.”

Allen is also considering Indiana, Kansas, Kansas State, North Carolina, Notre Dame and Texas.

Harry Giles is going to Duke.

I’d bet one of my Sleep Outfitters TEMPUR-Cloud pillows on it.

That’s too bad, too. He’d look really good in UK blue.

Cheick Diallo still not cleared to play at Kansas.

Some news from outside of Big Blue Nation: Bill Self’s top recruit still hasn’t been cleared by the NCAA and he will sit out of tomorrow’s exhibition game if he isn’t cleared between now and then. If for some reason Diallo never gets the thumbs up from the NCAA, it is another massive bullet dodged by Kentucky. Calipari was all over Diallo when Slice was still on staff.

Sacha Killeya-Jones to sign with UK next Saturday.

According to Chris Fisher over at, Killeya-Jones will sign with Kentucky at the Phenom National High School Showcase in Lewisville, NC, three days into the fall signing period. He plans to sign after his team’s 1:30 pm game next Saturday, just as Kentucky kicks off with Vanderbilt, before Kentucky tips off with NJIT. What a day.


Now go buy yourself a mattress!

    Congratulations. You got the kickoff vs. tipoff distinction figured out on this one.

    Just imagine if Harry Giles chose UK….

    Giles to Duke is not so clear-cut. Wake Forest is making a strong push for him (see link below). I’m a Duke student, so I was at the exhibition game when Giles was visiting, and then I saw him at a club the next night. He seemed like he was trying to enjoy it, but he didn’t look comfortable. The article below brings up that Wake is Giles’s home and the place he is most familiar with — don’t be surprised if he becomes a Deacon.
