I'll use and repost this thread to offer periodic (sporadic) updates on UK recruit Michael Avery of Encino Crespi High near Los Angeles...
If you hvae not seen it yet, the Herald-Leader has a great new feature that will help keep statistical tabs on the players already committed to Kentucky.
[Dec. 19 update]
"Highly touted freshman Michael Avery scored nine points, had several steals and made some nice decisions running the point guard position.
"We just wanted to get in the flow again," Avery said. "This was a game to get our confidence back. It was a good chance to work on stuff and polish some things we worked on in practice. Our goal is to just keep getting better."
"Crespi of Encino's Michael Avery, above, committed to Kentucky this past summer, just months removed from completing the eighth grade. But is he even the best freshman in the area?
The jury is still out. Avery was solid all summer and didn't have much trouble adapting to the rigors of high school ball, but coaches and spectators still wonder about his athleticism and quickness - and if he has already reached his peak."
