We’re hearing there is a very good chance Canadian shooting guard Jamal Murray will reclassify to 2015 soon, and if so, there’s also a good chance he’ll commit to Kentucky. Oregon has been recruiting Murray from the start, but Murray will be in Lexington this weekend for the Nike EYBL event, very convenient timing for John Calipari to make his case. Murray burst onto the recruiting scene after a breakout performance in the Nike Hoop Summit a few weeks ago and is now solidly in Calipari’s crosshairs.
Want to see him play for yourself? Murray plays for Canada’s CIA Bounce. Here’s their schedule at the Nike EYBL event at the Kentucky Basketball Academy (273 Ruccio Way):
- Friday: 8 p.m.
- Saturday: 2 p.m.
- Saturday: 9:30 p.m. vs. Harry Giles (Team CP3)
- Sunday: 8 a.m.
Several other Kentucky targets will also be in action, including Harry Giles (Team CP3), Malik Monk (Wings Elite), Jayson Tatum (St. Louis Eagles) and Tyus Battle (Team Final). For a complete schedule, check out the Nike EYBL site.
That game Saturday night against Harry Giles, the 2nd best player in 2016, could be something special.
