Vernon Carey Jr. tweets about upcoming UK visit

USA Today

We’ve known since mid-July that Vernon Carey Jr. has plans to visit Kentucky for Big Blue Madness. He said at the Peach Jam he will take most of his official visits in October, one of which will be to Kentucky for Madness.

Now we know things haven’t changed and Carey will be in attendance Friday night. He tweeted about the trip with a fancy graphic to confirm the visit:

The five-star center, ranked second overall in the class, will also take official visits to Duke (Oct. 19) and Miami (Oct. 26), as well as a trip to North Carolina in November. Those in the know assume it will come down to Duke or Kentucky in the end.

    This is the only way to keep the momentum rolling! Keep the duo of Carey and/or Stewart away from MSU and especially dUKe. Grabbing one of them along with Tshiebwe and a wildcard of McDaniels, Hurt or Brooks would be the only way to replace the front court. I’ve pretty much lost hope on Wiseman. It’s been hometown team or dUKe instead of Kentucky for too long with the elite recruits.
