Richie Farmer has been indicted on four counts of misappropriating funds, and one count of soliciting property.

Been told Andrew Wiggins has canceled his home visits with Kansas, UNC and Florida State early this week.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanCBS) April 22, 2013
Oh, the Calipari hate is in overdrive on Twitter, and Wiggins hasn't committed to a soul.
Here’s the C-J’s take on Horton’s announcement. They failed to mention that U of L was a school of interest for Horton and that U of L was among the losers in the recruiting battle. I find that very amusing. By the way, the article originally claimed that Horton is a 3 star player. Someone obviously called them out. (Hank)
Long is only a 3-star, but he has a lot of interest from schools that Kentucky should be competing successfully against, such as Indiana, Louisville, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, Purdue and Pittsburgh.
I can’t believe Arkansas nosed us out. The rest of them, no surprise. Still, 5th is pretty darn good, especially considering who we outperformed.
I think this is right. It’s really important for Kentucky to defeat Western next year, and Tennessee should be one that we have a chance to win at home, even if I don’t really like our chances.
I’m more confident that they will be important down the road in a year or two. Next year seems to be asking a lot of them, based on what I have seen.
Heh. I doubt they know.
Anybody surprised. Didn’t think so.
This doesn’t mean all that much. I know people are getting excited about it, particularly the Kentucky haters, but I don’t see any reason to. He’s just tired, and God knows, I can’t blame him. It isn’t as if he hasn’t heard from all these guys a bunch of times. What can they offer that’s new, money?

Tennessee had a big turnout for their spring game as well. They should, one would think.

For those who are interested… (Hank)
Sorry, I can’t help myself, but I hope it happens. The story is long, but well worth reading. (Hank)
It’s interesting, because this mirrors my view. It may happen, but it won’t happen anytime soon. It’s very difficult to get agreement on even the smallest things, so getting agreement on a huge thing like this is even more daunting. (Glenn)

So schools can offer multiyear scholarships now. But they aren’t. And for the most part, they won’t.
