Kentucky Not Seen As Favorite for Anthony Bennett

New, 27 comments

Dave Telep has an ESPN Insider article about Anthony Bennett's recruitment, but the part of most interest to Kentucky fans has leaked out via Twitter, this one from Ben Roberts of NextCats:

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.
