    Most of it speculation, some saying he has silently verballed to UK, others saying he is going to reclassify and suit up for UK. All of the noise he has shut down, saying I've told you over and over I'm staying in 21.

    Well, here's a thought. If he stated that he is going to reclassify now or anytime soon, he would be declared ineligible for Spring and Summer events that for sure he would like to participate in. So, considering that, there is the thought that he will wait til Summer to reclass.

    It's all just noise right now, but there is a lot of it out there today.

    lets not forget..... a certain Washington bball guy privately committed to us.... then didnt come to UK

    Even if Banchero told Cal he's coming.... I m not buying in until he says so to the public.

    Here is hoping if he DID commit that he follow through with his commitment. Love his game and would love to see him in blue and white!

    When Banchero himself says "I'm going to Kentucky" and signs, I will then get excited.

    The news is encouraging though, but until it's officially official, I'll just wait.

    I believe nothing anymore unless it’s in stone. No knock on Dave it’s everyone everywhere. So much misdirection for attention

    What DK said makes sense and could very be every bit true. It would be the smart move by Banchero to do it that way.

    I bet Jaden now wishes he had stuck to his commitment now.Hopefully Banchero realizes what a great opportunity he has at UK.

    This kid gains nothing by staying in high school another year. Gotta believe there's something to it. Maybe connected to the Chandler vist this Saturday???

    At first glance I thought this read: lots-of-noise from the Bunny Ranch, L1C4 news!

    I don't believe so. I also think the supposed big man coming from the lips of Boston was not Banchero.

    There seems to be a growing sentiment that he will choose UK. I'm not willing to say that, but I believe we are strongly in the mix.

    I'll get some criticism on this, but I don't like Kuminga's game all that much. He seems to be bored and tries doing things on the court that make no sense. He's 6'7 at the most. Sure, if he wants to come here, I'm good with it. If it were me ranking these kids, I wouldn't have him so high.

    I've been quite busy with work and raising my son, but I've not seen W2B around of late; is he ok?
    As to the OP, I hope we get this dude; he's the real deal.

    Dave, I’ve watched JK just once....and he didn’t blow me away. He’s definitely skilled, and is an NBA Player. But I walked away feeling he was more Luol Deng than Carmelo Anthony.

    I believe Dave heard this and I believe it’s real info. I just don’t trust any info anymore. Like the poster above said, you hear what they want you to hear.

    I saw Kuminga almost yawn before stepping on court before an AAU game. He does come across as bored the two times I've seen him. But he has these bursts where he effortlessly controls games. He's an elite athlete on the court

    Thanks for the info Dave, keep letting us know what you hear. Now here is a question, would Kuminga play harder sounded by other studs or would he pout and quit?

    You know the staff will use the visit to talk with Chandler about both playing together here. Agree on nothing to gain by staying in school. He lead the Nike circuit in rebounding against mostly older players.

    Not going to be a popular opinion, but Banchero is a lock for Washington.
