This note about Kerry Blackshear seems promising for Kentucky

I may not have news on Kerry Blackshear Jr., but how about a promising note? Gene Henley, the Tennessee beat writer for the Chattanooga Times Free Press, tweeted this morning that Blackshear’s number one priority in choosing a school is finding the team with the best chance of winning a title:

Blackshear is considering Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee, Arkansas, Michigan State, Texas A&M, and Virginia Tech. Of those schools, Kentucky and Michigan State have the best chances of making a title run, followed by Florida. After losing four of five starters, Tennessee is definitely in rebuilding mode, as are Arkansas, Texas A&M, and Virginia Tech, all programs with new coaches.

I’m sure John Calipari will tell him all of this when he gets on campus for his official visit.

      Dude was barely out of diapers when Izzo won his 1 title, at least Cals was this century! Hopefully that works in our favor.

      I thought Izzo only had 1 title but I could be wrong.

      My mistake BP, I misread your comment as his first title but I see now you said won his 1 title.

    Does he want to fill the role of Reid Travis? The One and Dones will be the focal point of the team.

      Kind of a good point. I just don’t see him signing with KENTUCKY. Reid Travis was a blessing to have at KENTUCKY. He played PAC 10…at Stanford. Different league than the ACC. Bottom line is what we have all thought: What could’ve been. And, what can potentially be….should he sign with KENTUCKY. We will soon see.

    The real question – do you want to win a title, be a legend, and reap the rewards many years later as part of BBN? No other program in the country can offer that.

    Anybody that can graduate college in three years while playing one of the two major college sports at a high level,has to be very bright.
    Blackshear’s dream is the NBA, and a bright guy like him would be keying on what he needs to improve on as gleaned from his just completed NBA tryouts. I think he would be more interested in where he can go and receive
    the coaching to reach his dream, with a deep showing in March Maddness just a side bonus, and not the deal clincher.
