Four-star 2015 big man Thomas Bryant took an unofficial visit to Kentucky over the weekend, but according to his mother, it was nothing more than a fun trip with his friends. Linda Bryant said that her son is down to Syracuse and Indiana, with Syracuse the likely favorite. Bryant doesn’t have an offer from Kentucky, and realistically, his mother says UK is not the school for him:
“You have to give kudos to the man (Calipari) for being able to recruit like that,” Linda said. “But I don’t think that’s the right place for my son. He’s a young man who is still learning the game. He needs to be focused on that, not worrying which platoon he is on.”
Fair enough. Kentucky’s not for everyone. Besides, the Cats already have one commitment from a 2015 big man in Skal Labissiere and are still courting Cheick Diallo, Stephen Zimmerman, Carlton Bragg, Ivan Rabb, and Caleb Swanigan.
