Kentucky Wildcats Recruiting: Bol Bol may commit before early signing period ends

New, comment

The 5-star 7-footer is regarded as a top-5 recruit in every service.


Bol Bol has yet to make a public decision, but it may be coming today.

The deadline to sign in the early signing period is tonight, and Scout reporter Evan Daniels thinks Bol may still decide today.

Bol is down to Oregon and Kentucky. His Crystal Ball isn’t in the Cats’ favor. Not a single expert is currently picking Kentucky, as 94 percent of the predictions are in favor of Oregon and six percent are foggy.

Bol is a 7-foot forward, and as a 7-footer with a jump shot, he’s one of the most versatile players in his class.

Not long ago, Bol was considered almost a lock to pick Arizona. But the FBI investigation changed all that. After cutting them from his list, Bol predictions were mostly split between UK and Oregon.

Bol was cut from John Calipari’s U19 USA Team, and some thought that this would be an issue for Bol when it came time to decide. But Bol recently put that to rest on Twitter.

Even so, predictions have continued to turn further and further in Oregon’s favor, with Evan Daniels even going so far as to say he would be surprised if Bol didn’t pick the Ducks.

Bol moved to California during high school, and word has it that he’s really enjoyed being out West, so it’d be surprising to see him leave the West Coast. However, he has since transferred to Findlay Prep, where he’ll be coached by the father of PJ Washington.
