Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Recruiting: Theo Pinson never got Kentucky offer

Theo Pinson is ranked #10 in the class of 2014, and he will announce his college decision tomorrow at his high school. Pinson has narrowed his choices down to Louisville, Indiana, UNC, Duke, and G’town. Duke has been the leader for a while probably since his sophomore year in high school, but that isn’t the case with his decision coming to an end on Wednesday. Indiana and North Carolina are the two favorites from what I have heard. I expect the choice to be Indiana after Tom Crean has been on him really hard lately.

I know you are probably thinking why am I writing about this if he doesn’t have Kentucky listed? Well, he did have Kentucky on his list right before he cut it to 5 schools, but the kicker is he never got an offer from Coach Cal and staff. Calipari and Antigua went and watched Pinson not to long ago, but must not of liked what they say.

Stanley Johnson, and Devin Booker are the two wings with offers from Kentucky for the class of 2014, and I believe they feel great about both of them. Kentucky will have to fight off Arizona for Johnson but Booker could end up at Kentucky easily. It’s always amazed me that Kentucky has to turn down top 10 talent because they are in great shape with most of the top 5 guys. In 2013 Kentucky had to turn down an offer to Chris Walker who was the #8 player in the country.

Theo Pinson will announce at 12:15 tomorrow for anybody who loves recruiting as much as I do. I picked Indiana here, and on 247sports crystal ball, but like the Wiggins announcement he could shock everybody.
