(via kyducks) I gave some blood today.

Busy day.  That says it all.

But now that I have a few minutes, the news for today is recruiting.  Calipari has been hard after the recruiting trail, some of the results of which you can find linked below.  But Calipari has also been on the trail of Dominique Ferguson, if not quite as hard as you might expect.  Ferguson is a bit more nonplussed at the coaching change than most of the other players, so it seems Coach Cal has a ways yet to go.

Doron Lamb is another Oak Hill product who has been apparently offered a scholarship by Kentucky very recently.  Lamb is a 6'4" swing player who can really put the ball into the basket, both from behind the arc and off the bounce.

Calipari is also very hard after Harrison Barnes, and apparently he is moving into a pitched recruiting battle with Bill Self of Kansas.  Barnes has just been elevated to the #1 player in the class of 2010 by Scout and #4 by Rivals.

And now, for the news.
