A significant decommitment was announced on Thursday as Bryce McGowens has (for now) undeclared himself from the Florida State basketball program. A five-star recruit in the 2021 class, McGowens was the highlight of a class that had high hopes for the Seminoles.
Now, it’s not a guarantee he’ll re-commit. In fact, several programs have reached out to McGowens following his de-commitment, including Kentucky. He’s ranked 23rd overall by Rivals in the 2021 class.
After breaking the news this morning that five-star senior Bryce McGowens will reopen his recruitment, @Stockrisers got the latest on which program’s have reached out.— Jake (@jakeweingarten) October 9, 2020
The two newest ones: Kentucky and Kansas.https://t.co/31NXDKzPNu
While there isn’t a “favorite” to now land the 6’5 shooting guard, Florida State is rumored to still be well in the mix for a re-commitment from McGowens. And though anything can technically happen now, it will be relatively difficult for Kentucky to build a quality relationship with McGowens due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Head coach John Calipari would of course love to add a talent like McGowens to his 2021 recruiting class, but Big Blue Nation shouldn’t get their hopes up just yet. More traction will be needed in order to determine if Kentucky is a real player for McGowens or not.

With their season on the line, Miami will need all of Herro’s magic tonight.
COVID continues to make a significant impact on the NFL schedule.
What’s your prediction for this weekend?
Penalty after penalty makes it pretty hard to win in the NFL.
Absolutely terrible look for Wichita State.
Significant blow for the entire Cowboys’ offense.
This is just a grown man’s move.
The NFL is certainly taking multiple risks by playing these games.
