Vernon Carey releases top three, eliminates Kentucky

Vernon Carey just dropped his top three and, as we all feared, Kentucky didn’t make the cut. The No. 2 player in the 2019 class is down to Duke, Michigan State, and North Carolina.

A bad recruiting week for John Calipari just got worse. In other news, LaMelo Ball is currently in Lexington and I can’t even deal with what that means:

Things could never be so bad that Calipari would get involved with that mess, right?

    If we ever have a Ball boy on a UK team, you can count me out.

    Vernon Carry…sounds like an old dude who turns the ball over a lot. Don’t need em!

      U think that your nuts. He will be better in college than wiseman. This is another example of TJs pump up the fan base recruiting model. Weeks ago oh I think we get Carey and wiseman. Not even in the final 3 for Carey but then I’m sure he changed his pick last week. Oh course I guess I’d do it too if my job was driven by website hits but don’t believe a word of what dude says.

      What about my nuts? If TJ was able to 100% predict the future, then he wouldn’t be here. He is followed because of the perspective he provides and occasional inside info. It’s entertainment…not prognostication.

    Not to mention if UK did land melo ball, I think the BBN could keep Lamar ball in check

      I hope they’re in town for Thanksgiving and nothing else. That would be like watching a train wreck.

      He *can* play college ball as long as he graduates from high school. He played unpaid in Europe.

    We aren’t going to be a contender next year either way, so I hope we have nothing to do with Ball.

      Yep. Yet another wasted non contending year for cal. But dont worry he has plenty of spotlight things to do. Anything but bball.

      Big blue, code red, whoever…you sound so miserable, poor guy. You should think about finding a new team, Kentucky just isn’t for everyone.

      True, you should just stop watching as long as Cal is here. It sounds like you’re miserable watching them, so do yourself a favor and stop. Tune back in when Cal leaves… Or don’t… No one will miss you.

      You still here bigolblue? I figured the absolute owning I’ve been doing of you would be enough for you to stay gone. Keep posting your nonsense, I’ll keep making you look like a fool. And…if I’m not here, it’s okay, because Booby, 4ever, and many, many others own you too. I love it when someone has such a weak argument all they can do is regurgitate their terrible hot takes. Please, don’t ever change, I love how absolutely stupid you are.

    Wow cant even make the top 3? So much for people saying UNC wasn’t a player. Wow is all i can say.

      I’d rather him cut us now rather then wasting both his and Cal’s time and all our hopes.

    It’s getting increasingly obvious that Kentucky is no longer a consideration for top recruits. Time to move on.

      The incels whining about us not getting top recruits and the douchebags whining about all our players going one and done make a Venn diagram circle. 99% of you losers never graduated from UK, you can all piss odd for good.

    I don’t believe therr will be the mass exodus that everyone is assuming happens. I think there’s a great chance EJ and Richards comes back…. hope so, anyway.

      No way. Top heavy class and next year is loaded with bigs and several others may reclassify.

    I said long time ago Carey was not going to come here. Cal has never got a top offensive big . Over rated as a coach . If you can’t teach guys to keep your man in front of you by now after playing ball all of your life your not a good coach . Layups at this level just blows my mind

      Cousins? Skal? (Granted he didn’t pan out but #1 big and was always considered a good offensive player)

    It would seem that Kentucky has gone from not being for everybody to not being for anyone. An exaggeration of course, but close.

    I love that for years people were mad because Cal recruits the one and done’s and no one sticks around. Now the one and done’s are going other places and everyone is mad we aren’t getting the top 5 talent.



  19. VirginiaCat

    Actually, FLCAT, it is worse than that. We aren’t get the best talent and the players that we do get aren’t sticking around.

    Trolling. The dude is trolling UK. He’s saying the lights are out and the party is over, because no one is coming here anymore.

    Not likely true, but Cal has had a lot of time to do things his way and we are where we are right now. Is what it is

    If he or any other player is considering the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I don’t want anything to do with the kid no matter what.

    Didn’t read the article, surely this ball being recruited noise is a horrible rumor. IMO if this is true, Cal has gave up and is now trying to fill the roster knowing all the baggage that follows will be a huge distraction for the team and an out if the season is below par. But I do not believe that is the direction Cal is going, the magician will pull a rabbit out of a hat and we will be fine. I do think Coach may start thinking of retiring in a couple more seasons, maybe let Brad get a year of coaching experience then head to the beach and sit back and laugh knowing how much crap the new coach will get every time something doesn’t go our way.

    The youngest Ball is a pretty crappy basketball player. He is well below our requirements for a useful addition. Not to mention the family baggage.

    Carey was never coming to Lexington…. but to suggest he is not a top talent is absurd. You will likely end up at Duke, and will be among the best freshmen in the nation. I agree with the sentiment that he is better than Wiseman.
