I LOVE this feature. Thanks to all of you for your hard work. If Muhammed can't see that UK is his best fit for becoming the BEST pro he can be, well, good luck @ UCLA.
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
Thanks again for the info.
Just saw on tv (ICN in Louisville) that Davis said his knee is at 90%. Not sure what to make of that.

I wouldn't count on MKG being out the door just yet. But yes, Top 5 is getting to the point where some around family are like, 'You have to go.' Personal preference, he'd like to stay another year. We'll see.
I still believe that his decision will come down to whether or not his mother feels he's ready from a maturity stand point. She has been very adamant and vocal about his age and maturity since before he committed to UK.
Cal has said many times that when a kid wants to stay another year when already being projected a high pick that he will need at least 2 or 3 very real reasons to stay in order for him to agree, in this case I can see momma MKG giving those reasons to Cal.
I said a while back that I had heard (and I did admit that I did not know the validity of the source) that there had been talks between TJ (leading the discussions) Lamb, MKG, and Teague about all 4 coming back and tryin to do something special together. I know this is very unlikely but imo a slight possibility.
so, when do we expect noel to sign?
what's his time line?
Great info, JDrumm. Thanks and keep it coming. Look forward to landing Noel and Bazz!
We'll know for certain who will return from the current roster by a week from Tuesday (April 10, if not sooner). The signing period begins the next day (Wednesday, April 11). I'd expect to hear something from Nerlens right around that time. Shabazz will probably announce on the 14th (at the Jordan-Brand Classic). Bennett said he would take his visits following the Mickey D and Jordan-Brand games. As of now, he intends to take all five (UK, UF, UW, Oregon and UNLV, I believe). Oriakhi will probably take at least a couple of visits - possibly UK, UNC-CH and I forget the third one in the mix.
Bennett may not choose until late April or even May. That timetable could be hastened if Muhammad were to select UK and get in AB's ear about joining him @ UK.
