The early signing period begins tomorrow.
Here’s what Kentucky’s schedule looks like for the week…
Wednesday, 1 pm: Wenyen Gabriel will sign with Kentucky
Thursday, 6 pm: De’Aaron Fox announcement on ESPNU, expected to pick Kentucky
Saturday afternoon: Sacha Killeya-Jones will sign with Kentucky
Lock down those three in this early signing period and that’s a good foundation to attack the recruiting trail for the spring addition.
Eric Bossi of Rivals.com predicts the future.
Rivals.com’s basketball recruiting analysts named his picks for several of high school basketball’s top stars today. You can see all of his predictions here.
For John Calipari and Kentucky, he predicts De’Aaron Fox and possibly Malik Monk, with Monk’s recruitment being “too close to call between Arkansas and Kentucky.”
Bossi has Jarrett Allen, Bam Adebayo, Marques Bolden, Kobi Simmons, Marques Bolden and Rawle Alkins going elsewhere.
ESPN’s Jeff Borzello thinks De’Aaron Fox can be an All-American “right off the bat.”
Borzello had this to say in the ESPN experts recruiting discussion:
Outside the top three guys, though, I think De’Aaron Fox is going to make a huge impact at the next level — and I do think his future home will be Kentucky. He’s just so fast with the ball in his hands, and so aggressive off the bounce, that he’s going to be one of the best playmakers in the country. Throw in the fact that he’s maybe the best defensive guard in the 2016 class, and I just think you have a guy who has a chance to be an All-American right off the bat.
Adam Finkelstein believes the same thing about Malik Monk, assuming Monk picks Kentucky in the end. Right now, Monk is likely waiting to see how the UK backcourt shapes up at the end of the current season.
The Cats lost a Class of 2018 football commitment today.
Jermaine Eskridge, the star wide receiver who committed to UK back in the busy month of July, reopened his recruitment today. He left this message for the coaching staff on his Twitter device:
I would like to thank Coach Scott, Coach Dawson and the entire Kentucky staff for everything y’all have done for me. After speaking with my family, I have decided to Decommit from the University of Kentucky. As of today Nov10 I have reopened my Recruiting Process.
Thanks everybody for your support
Predictable, considering Eskridge is only a sophomore in high school. The pickup was nice at the time, but I don’t think anyone expected it to last.
Tacko Fall plans to sue the NCAA if he’s declared ineligible.
The 7-foot-6 freshman is hoping an academic waiver will allow him to play college basketball at UCF, but it’s not looking good. Fall had a 3.6 GPA in his final two years of high school; however the NCAA isn’t accepting all of his coursework.
I tell you that as an excuse to post this Vine:
Now go buy a mattress, everybody.
