We now have a time on when Bam Adebayo will be announcing his college decision:
Elite forward Bam Adebayo will announce his college decision tomorrow on @MikeAndMike at 9:30 a.m. Kentucky and NC State have been battling.— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) November 17, 2015
Also, Kentucky is now surging in Bam's 247 Sports Crystal Ball, and it now appears the Cats may be the favorite going into his commitment.
One of the top big men left in the 2016 class will announce his college decision on Tuesday.
Five-star forward Edrice 'Bam' Adebayo is set to make his commitment right before the Kentucky Wildcats face the Duke Blue Devils tomorrow night, and UK could still be in the running for him.
I'm told the plan is for five-star PF Bam Adebayo to announce tomorrow morning. Final details still being worked out.— Ben Roberts (@NextCats) November 16, 2015
Sounds like UK has a strong shot at Bam Adebayo tomorrow.— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) November 16, 2015
What I'm hearing tonight says UK. Would be a huge (and very surprising) recruiting victory for Calipari. https://t.co/nm1NoFJd83— Ben Roberts (@NextCats) November 16, 2015
A 6-9, 232-pound forward out of Northside High School (NC), is ranked as the No. 7-overall prospect on Rivals and No. 6 on ESPN.
His 24/7 Crystal Ball has the NC State Wolfpack as the favorites with the North Carolina Tar Heels in second place, but the Cats have gotten the most recent votes for Bam.
It cannot be overstated how big of a favorite for Bam the Wolfpack have been to this point with little chance he picked anyone else if he decided during the early signing period, which ends Wednesday. Maybe watching NC State lose at home by 17 to William & Mary helped Bam realize playing for Mark Gottfried over John Calipari isn't the wisest decision one could make.
Heck, watching Bam, it would be easy to see him being one-and-done after one season at UK. Has Gottfried ever had one?
