Today seems like a good day for a basketball commitment!
That might just be the case for John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats, as 4-star forward Lance Ware will be announcing his college decision this afternoon at 4 p.m. and the buzz is that the Wildcats will be the choice.
Ware, a 6’9” forward from New Jersey, ranks as the 32nd best player in the 2020 class by 247 Sports and could be Kentucky’s first frontcourt commitment in the class, joining wings Brandon Boston and Cam’Ron Fletcher.
Ware averaged 11.4 points and 6.0 rebounds a game with the NY Rens on the Nike EYBL Circuit. According to Evan Daniels, adding Ware would move Kentucky to the top class in the country.
With 10 Crystal Ball picks in Kentucky’s favor, it’s hard to see a scenario in which Ware picks anywhere other than Kentucky, but he has taken recent visits to Ohio State and Michigan. I feel pretty confident that Kentucky’s 2020 class will gain its third member this afternoon with the chance to add a fourth in Terrence Clarke in just a couple days.

Cal isn’t done yet!
University of Kentucky wide receiver Lynn Bowden will wear Terry Wilson’s No. 3 during the Wildcats’ home game against Florida on Saturday, the school confirms to the LHL/Kentucky.com.— Josh Moore (@JoshMooreHL) September 11, 2019
Nice gesture by Bowden. Betting he throws at least one pass in his boy’s number, too.
Really cool move by Lynn Bowden.
Injuries leave some question marks on both sides.
Tickets to the game won’t come cheap or easy.
Wood is next in line should a situation arise.
The UK O-Line and Smith will have their hands full against the Gators pass rush.
These two are familiar with each other.
Seems like Penny is conceding this recruitment.
Probably very little as more stars will want to play in the 2020 Olympics.
A lot of really good teams that failed to bring home a title.
Definitely something to watch moving forward.
Anything else would have been absurd.
What a twist to the story.
