    Whats the reason behind all the Clemson buzz? Did someone in his camp leak it or is it more of that he is announcing early when UK was expecting him to wait a while, or something else?

    I dunno...

    Vince Marrow helped UK land Kevin Knox when everyone thought he was 100% going to Duke.

    I'd like to have him, sure. He's a great talent and games would be electric. But I really don't think we need him, at all. I like what Kentucky/Cal is building for next year.

    I don’t know if anyone else caught this last night. The announcers said Zion was interested in a school with a football atmosphere. Doesn’t bode well for us lol.

    Our basketball environment is one of the more similar to a football environment so if that is more his meaning than it might well be all good.

    I don't understand why Arkansas isn't a major factor in Zion's recruitment, with his dad being an All-American for the Hogs back in the 1990s.

    Someone came up with that comparison a week ago back at a Utah Jazz practice and when he said it I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of that. That might be as close to a good comparison as any (Royce White is another). Barkley with Handles and passing

    All was one of the reasons. None is the main and only reason. Kids pick schools for more than one reason.

    There are a couple sights that show his AAU games and where you can get camp footage games. What you saw him do in the smaller H.S Games he does vs bigger better AAU players as well as when he goes to the top camps and USA trails. In some cases it’s easier because instea dof playing against zones and smaller quicker kids, he’s playing against taller slower bigs

    Also you probably notice that Zion doesn’t try to just over power players (even though he can). He usually uses his speed and shiftiness to get past players

    Most days, Vitale thinks he is in Durham or Chapel Hill. But yes, I keep ESpissmeoff on mute. Actually delete their stations on the car radio. So should we all.

    I find it fascinating how desperate UK fans are to get Zion. I can't recall a time during Cal's tenure where a recruit has caused so much anxiety. The only reason this is the case is because of Cal's inability to win a 2nd title. There is a growing (call it nagging) feeling that Cal wont win another title at UK. And getting Zion likely means the difference between a title contender and just another decent team. Not sure I ever expected the angst over a single recruit with Cal at UK.

    If you are not baiting, as you usually are, you will notice many posters accepting the fact we may not get any of the “big three” from this class and are excited about who is coming and who might come back. Yes some are freaking out but mid are the normal chicken Little’s, trolls, or Cal haters.

    No baiting, though I appreciate the sentiment. You are kidding yoursef if you believe the vast majority of UK fans are not angst-ridden over Zion. The key, if UK doesnt get Zion, depends on who returns next year.
