UK fan sends Rawle Alkins a handwritten letter

NC State may be the perceived frontrunner for five-star shooting guard Rawle Alkins, but that’s not stopping UK fans from trying to lure him to Big Blue Nation. This afternoon, Alkins tweeted a picture of a handwritten note he received from UK fan Preston Carter. Take a look:


In case you’re squinting to read that, here’s what the letter says:

“Dear King Rawle,

You might not know me, but I know you. I’ve seen your hoop mixtape and highlights! In your recruitment, NC State and UK have been mentioned a lot. I believe that you should commit to the #BBN! Here’s why.

To start off, Coach Cal has a machine of getting great guards to the NBA, like John Wall, Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, Harrison Twins, Derrick Rose, James Young, and Brandon Knight. Your talent and skills could lead UK to not only a National Championship, but you can be one of those great guards Cal got to the NBA if you commit to the BBN! I hope to see you in a Kentucky uniform!


Preston Carter”

What was Alkins’ reaction?

Wherever you are, Preston, well done.

    Preston is sorta tall, but not really, and wears tshirts sometimes.

    Additionally, Sandy Bell does not want anyone, even kids, doing this.

    It’s not boosters and no money involved so there is no harm in a little kid saying he wants to see someone in blue.

    Funniest/Dumbest comments on the tweet: Let’s be honest that isnt exactly a great lineup of NBA players that the lil guy referenced. But i do like his passion.
    and: Roy Williams has the same coaching resume or better bro. Two titles putting champions in the pros and guys who go on to win NBA titles Harrison Barnes James Mcadoo Paul Pierce to name a few. UNC is where it’s at bro

      You realize that’s 2 all stars, 2 of the better up and coming players with knight and bledsoe, and booker is gonna be legit. You had to reference your coaches player from another school because unc’s recent track record of nba success is embarrassing. Whtly didn’t you just throw in sheed Wallace and stackhouse they looked great in the alumni game. Macodo sucks at everything. One if the biggest busts recently. I looking at you Sean may and McCants. They sure had mighty careers

    This type of recruiting will land you on probation, and strips titles! Cease and desist immediately! No Post Season for UK!!!!!!!
    Things that happen in the Minardi Brothel will not be reviewed because they are not proven with the correct documentation and loopholes!
    NCAA violations are a joke.

    The kid writes better than all of the U of L players who have released statements and Peyton Siva’s dad.

    Somebody needs to gently inform Preston that the twins are not in the NBA. However, had they left a year earlier, they would be in the NBA and we would already have #9. Sigh …

    Preston should be a grammar tutor for Papa Siva.

    IT IS the coach job to recuit and contract the kids not the fans . Fans need to travel and on the kids only. This could get the program in trouble for what he did.

      This post almost rivals the intelligibility of Siva Sr. Contract? “…and on the kids only…” What?
      Seriously, man.
