University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

There’s something brewing in Marques Bolden’s Crystal Ball…

What, you didn’t think we’d let a couple of hours pass without a Marques Bolden update, did you? While there isn’t any news from Bolden himself (please), there is some interesting movement in 247 Sports’ Crystal Ball of predictions. Three writers made predictions in Kentucky’s favor this afternoon, including two Duke writers:

Of course, this is the Crystal Ball, so take it with a grain of salt, but as this recruitment has stalled, it’s nice to see some movement back in Kentucky’s direction, especially from Duke writers.

Maybe it was that sales pitch from De’Aaron Fox?

    Awesome news- this is the 1st time throughout this process where I’m starting to really like our chances. Those guys changing those picks today is no coincidence!

    I always said the more that the recruitment drags out the better it is for UK. Think about it, they freed up the scholarship for him. Harry Giles basically stalked him at the end of season all-star games, K made the most recent in home visit, they had everything going for them, yet he still did not commit. Now coach Cal is making workout videos talking about next year is going to be “WAR”, it just looks like he got some good news. Even the De’aaron sales pitch looks like he knows something good is coming. Now the Duke writers are switching up on the crystal ball.

      I tend to agree. If he were going to do what others wanted, he would have already picked. It’s a glimmer of hope, at least.

    Pretty sure I said things were looking better for UK than originally thought once he went passed his self stated deadline of the 17th. At that point everyone thought it was going to be Duke, Thorton had just left, if he wanted Duke, he would have committed then. As soon as he went passed that deadline I liked our chances. Im not saying KSR should hire me to read the future, but Im not saying they shouldn’t either.

      Wait… that was supposed to be funny??? It sounded self-absorbed, narcissistic, vain, conceited, self-important; boastful and arrogant to me.

      The fact that he incorrectly used ‘passed’ instead of ‘past’ did give me a little chuckle.

    Would love for him to come here … BUT it wouldn’t surprise me if the two Duke writers are just goofing on us. They are like that, you know!

    I knew Bolden was coming here two years ago. I’m not saying, I’m just saying.

    Are we being trolled?

    What does Drew Franklin have to say?

    This is deception by Coach K. Put out Bolden to UK rumors, knowing he’s already got the kid. That way publicly, when Bolden commits to Duke, looks like K out recruited Cal at the last second. Nanu Nanu
