Only one elite player remains in the 2015 recruiting class and Kentucky is on his final list of five schools. Of course, I’m talking about Jaylen Brown, the five-star wing, who is down to Kansas, Michigan, California, North Carolina and the Cats.
However, if you’re a big believer in 247Sports’ Crystal Ball predictions, give up on Brown-to-Kentucky now. Of the 19 new predictions this week, all 19 are for Michigan, giving the Wolverines an overwhelming lead. Seemingly all of the latest internet speak points to Brown to Ann Arbor, whenever he decides.
But it’s been a bizarre spring and Brown has been incredibly quiet about his recruitment, so nothing will come as a surprise. We’re talking about the guy who said he will only go to an Adidas school, no matter what, and now his final list has three Nike schools to Adidas’ two. He’s unpredictable. (Although, Michigan being an Adidas school only helps its chances.)
Brown still hasn’t set an exact date for his announcement, but with all of his fellow elite talents off the board, there is no longer a reason to wait to see how things play out. His decision should come soon and whatever school he chooses will be getting a dynamic scorer on the wing, exactly what UK needs fill out the roster.
Please. Pick. Kentucky.
