Friday Quickies: Bryce McGowens Edition

New, 38 comments

McGowens is suddenly one of the top available recruits in 2021, and UK is interested.

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.

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.
