Checked up on Rawle Alkins' tweet. He hasn't committed to Buffalo, a source says. "He's messing with everyone."— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) October 9, 2015
Sorry guys people at my school was playing with my phone ain't nothing wrong with buffalo great program but no i am not really committed— Rawle Alkins (@Iam_RawleAlkins) October 9, 2015
Rawle Alkins and/or his friends are jokesters apparently. Hopefully he's at least still visiting for Big Blue Madness next week.
In what would be a very surprising turn of events, Rawle Alkins is off the board for 2016.
Five-star guard and Kentucky Wildcats target Rawle Alkins has committed to the Buffalo Bulls, he announced Friday on Twitter.
Proud to say that I have Committed to play my college basketball at the University of Buffalo #GOBULLS ⚫️ pic.twitter.com/ZLp09gL0mw— Rawle Alkins (@Iam_RawleAlkins) October 9, 2015
Teammate Jalen Harris committed to Buffalo. I'm sure they'd love you too https://t.co/fMVv6gtqeZ— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) October 9, 2015
We'll keep you posted on if this is actually real, but that's his Twitter handle, so we'll see where it goes.
It's safe to say no one saw that coming, given his 24/7 Crystal Ball has 17 predictions, and none of them are for the Bulls. UK was leading the way at 53% of the votes, and Alkins was set to visit the Cats for Big Blue Madness. The NC State Wolfpack were next in line with 29% of the votes, and it looked like a battle between those two schools for Alkins.
