Events Are Moving Fast ...

and your humble correspondents here at ASOB are trying desperately to keep up with them.  So let's get straight to it.

Matt Jones at KSR has a long post about the status of recruiting.  I recommend you read it, it will bring you up to date.

According to this article in the Bloomington Herald-Times, Beas Hamga has applied to leave high school early.  The actual article is subscription only, so I can only give you the lede, but if accurate, this could only indicate Hamga's intention to matriculate to UK.

Fox Sports thinks the Gators have the inside track on Lucas.  Via Aaron's UK Basketball Blog.

Rodrick Rhodes returns to Kentucky?  Jerry Tiption has the story here.

That's all for now, much more to follow ...

Update [2007-5-1 12:20:11 by Truzenzuzex]:  Michael David Smith waxes all indignant about schools like UK spending the big bucks on sports. I thought the Courier-Journal would editorialize on that first, but I guess I was mistaken.   ESPN has a couple of lines about that as well, which certainly highlight the budget increase as a problem or dismiss it, depending on your point of view:

I'm sure the philosophy chair will get to use it whenever he gets word of a big thinker he wants to recruit up near Covington: The University of Kentucky is investigating the idea of purchasing a private plane for its coaches to use on recruiting trips.

It sounds crazy, until you think, "Damn, I bet Florida's got one of those planes": Yes, and also Tennessee and Alabama.

Well.   I wonder if Smith knows this?   I am waiting for the article denouncing everyone for having private planes for coaches.

Update [2007-5-1 16:13:5 by Truzenzuzex]:   Recruiting Wars has an update on national replays for the King James Classic this week.  Recruitniks will want to check it out.

A nice article at by Andy Katz takes a look at the Jai Lucas recruitment. Recommended.

Update [2007-5-1 19:34:0 by Truzenzuzex]:   Commenter bigbluefan pointed out this Rivals article (subscription) that basically indicates Beas Hamga is qualified for 2007 and ready to visit colleges.

Also, there is this free Rivals article recapping the King James Classic top performers in the class of 2009.
