The early signing period for college basketball kicks off today, and it’s kind of a huge deal for Kentucky. It’s big because the Cats do not have a single commit to their 2017 class yet, and they need about seven. This isn’t normal for the Cats, as they usually already have commits. Head Coach John Calipari already had Sacha Killeya-Jones and Wenyen Gabriel committed before the early signing period last year, so he enters this year’s early period with some ground to make up. The good news is, several of Cal’s top targets are deciding in the early period, which means the Cats could come out in even better shape than they were last year.
Tweet of the day
Kentucky is targeting Nick Richards, P.J. Washington, John Petty, Trae Young, Quade Green, Lonnie Walker, Hamidou Diallo, Shai Alexander and more. Hopefully they’ll come out of this signing period with at least a few.
The Cats seem likely to get either Trae Young or Quade Green (or both), but what if both recruits slip away? Is Shai Alexander the answer?
Richards has set a date and time and narrowed his list to three (Syracuse, UK and Arizona). The clock is ticking on Richards’ commitment.
Rivals has Trae Young, Mohamed Bamba, Hamidou Diallo and Kevin Knox all going elsewhere. Let’s hope he’s wrong.
