Marcus Lee has moved his commitment time to today at 4:00 Eastern instead of 2:30 Eastern, ostensibly to accommodate ESPN in some way.
Marcus Lee's announcement has been postponed until 4 p.m. ET, Deer Valley HS tells me. Will ESPN be there: "That's what they're telling us."— Ben Roberts (@NextCats) October 17, 2012
Per Rivals' rankings, if Marcus Lee picks UK this afternoon as expected, Cal and the Cats will have four of the top 15 guys in 2013 class.— Kyle Tucker (@KyleTucker_CJ) October 17, 2012
Marcus Lee announcement pushed back to 4 pm ET, apparently to accommodate ESPN coverage of some kind. Not sure which channel yet.— Jeff Drummond (@JDrumUK) October 17, 2012
Pending the Marcus Lee decision, John Calipari has landed 24 players at UK. 18 five-stars, five four-stars and one three-star.— Eric Bossi (@ebosshoops) October 17, 2012
Obviously, most people around college basketball figure that Lee is Kentucky bound, especially considering his well-publicized tweets and comments following Big Blue Madness.
Is this fun, or what? You remember when recruiting announcements used to be filled with fear and trepidation? Now it is other schools who get to experience that wonderful angst, while we sit back and watch the dominoes fall.
