Recruiting: What will happen next?



“Nothing less than #1” is starting to become a trend in the state of Kentucky. The number one recruiting class year after year since John Calipari came upon the scene. Could it be true for 2014 too? With a recent commitment it may be possible.

After having a big recruiting day on Halloween I don’t think the Big Blue Nation was expecting another this soon. We received a commitment from the #3 SG of 2014 in Devin Booker.

Today another recruit named Trey Lyles, on his birthday, decided to make his college decision to choose between U of L and UK. He is a 6’10 PF from Indiana that decommitted from Indiana in 2012. He had everyone saying last night that they were 99.9% sure he would be a UK Wildcat. However, early morning brought much speculation as with James Blackmon Jr. and no one knew what to believe.

Would he become the next Wildcat or choose to go to the rival school down the road? His decision was up in the air right up until he finally stated it. Everyone was second guessing their opinions. Would he pull a fast one and change his mind? Or would he be playing alongside Devin Booker, Karl Towns, and Tyler Ulis?

The time finally came and after he unzipped what seemed like 10 bags, he pulled out a Kentucky hat. Trey Lyles became the next Wildcat commitment.

So who’s next? Do the CATS have to wait until Spring for another commitment? Or do they get more surprises in the near future? Will someone reclassify for the 2014 class? So many questions yet to be answered.

Trey Lyles seemed to have a little about recruiting to say after he committed today. He stated that the CATS were missing a SF and that he was going after one Stanley Johnson.

Other names to be looking for could be Charles Matthews who is the right age to reclassify if he were to decide to. He’s a 6’4 SG from Chicago in the 2015 class.

Until spring? Or until tomorrow? It’s going to keep the Big Blue Nation in a state of wondering from now on out.
