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!
What was Alkins’ reaction?
UK fans are serious I Love it ! pic.twitter.com/ZKVtzywTkC
