It’s been a long week for Big Blue Nation as everyone is anticipating the decision that the Harrison Twins will make this evening at 5:00 PM. As much as Kentucky fans want to think that it isn’t a real race between their team and Maryland, it really is. The Twins’ father said that their decision has changed at least 10 times so far this week.
I still feel in my gut that they are Kentucky bounds, after all, why would Andrew say they are attending Big Blue Madness if they are going to Maryland?
And Sonny Vaccaro thinks that Kentucky is the logical choice, but that Maryland could make a giant leap back to prominence if they decide to go with them.
Julius Randle has narrowed his list by cutting Duke and North Carolina. The number one recruit in the 2013 class cut the two top tier programs just a few weeks after visiting Kentucky and after in home visits with John Calipari and Roy Williams. It seems that Williams’ 30 rings didn’t impress Randle as much as Cal’s latest championship ring. If the Harrison Twins commit today, look for the dominoes to start falling. Randle has said that he will make his decision in the Spring, but don’t be surprised that if UK starts massing a monster class earlier that he commits sooner.
Coshik Williams has caught a bad break and will miss the remainder of his senior season. He has a torn labrum in his hip and will not take the field again for the Wildcats. This comes after Max Smith has been ruled out indefinitely due to torn ligaments in his ankle.
Raymond Sanders and Jonathan George will have to pick up the slack for the rest of the season. They have performed well for the past three weeks.
