Dave Telep on Anthony Bennett: "The way to view his list in my mind is UNLV and Oregon in the first tier" with UK third.— Ben Roberts (@NextCats) May 5, 2012
Obviously, this is not what UK fans want to hear, but some have suggested that geography may have a bigger impact on Bennett than some others, like Kyle Wiltjer and Terrence Jones, something JC mentioned on in his most recent update.
I would avoid being discouraged by this, however. John Calipari is an outstanding closer, and is yet to put the big push on Bennett's recruitment. He may still lose, of course, but Calipari doesn't miss that many when he really goes after it. To put it in horse racing terms, Calipari is fully capable of running from the back of the pack and nipping the leader at the wire.
