I don't think it is an if he commits, but rather when he commits at this point.
I agree. I think he's going to be wearing Kentucky blue! That team will be sick. I know people say a bunch of freshmen can't win it, but this is going to be the exception to the rule. Come on Wiggins, get it over with already!
Just watched the video of him talking about it. He seemed very giddy when talking about the possibility, that's for sure. And he openly admitted that they would win it all. I like our chances more and more everyday. Pray that he suits up in blue and white next year!

Who was the last Canadian Kentucky player?
thanks i was looking for this video.
And, he sure knows the players name in his memory. And very giddy!
Just ANNOUNCE IT!!!
i bet he announces after April 8th.
Cote or Sheray Thomas I think
WE ARE UK
None of them have lived up to Jamaal Magloire, who I believe was the first.
We will be there to talk to him and the other guys this week

He said 2 we's and a me when talking to the reporter. He looked to have a kinda of glow in his eyes. I think he's got that lovin' feeling. Let him get 25-30 points of highlight footage playing with The Twins and JR at the Jordan Classic while Drake does his show...come on down.
Heck, I couldn't name the people I work with as fast as he rattled off the UK commits' names.
At this point, it's gonna be a major let down if Cal doesn't get him......as crazy as that may sound.
To me, Andrew Wiggins, Julius Randle and Jabari Parker would have been the top three players in Noel's class. To think Kentucky could have two guys better than Noel and a great complement of players to go with them is crazy.
Last year was fun to watch. They ran the ball. They dunked. They played defense. They were dominant. It was fun basketball. I wouldn't mind seeing that again.
Yeah his facial expressions was his commitment... lol
That group had a specialbond and did nt care how many shots they took. Can this team get to that point? But in saying that with that talent i cannot imagine more than 4 losses and thats if they dont fully gel.
Its AD and MKG all over again but the Harrison's are better than Teague and Lamb.
Sheray Thomas sp? Never mind Big beat me to it.

I truly think the Harrison's will be the kids that pull this team together. They are brothers and they will be the leaders of this team from day one. They are some of the toughest ball players I've ever seen on tape. They play with a natural swag and I believe you'll either fall in line with them or they'll set your ass straight.
Was a long time ago. Name is Kyle Wiltjer, people probably dont remember him . Sheray Thomas, Bernard Cote and Magloire before Wiltjer.
The top player is said to be almost unselfish to a fault, two are brothers, and the Twins and Randle have all shot down the BS that was reported between them. That sounds like a pretty good start to me.
These kids just sound like Cal's better recruits. They have the game to back it up. I don't see many obstacles for the players or staff to overcome next year except complacency. It'll take more than an off night for this team and a great night for the opponent for this team to lose.

I'm wondering looking at this team which guy in this group will be our go to defender. Will Wiggins except that challenge. He's certainly got all the tools. Or will it be Aaron or Andrew Harrison. Or will this team be just so good as a group defensively that they won't need a lock down defender like in we've had in years past w/Liggins and MKG. I think we all know though that it all starts with the defensive end of the floor. If we get big Willie back there is no chance of anybody beating this team. I'm sorry but we will just be too physically imposing at every position. Teams will have to shoot half courters in order to get a shot off. lol.
I definitely see Andrew Harrison as being the lockdown defender on the perimeter. He will shut down smaller PGs come tourney time. Wiggins has the tools to shut down multiple positions, like you said. Aaron and Young also have the physical tools to be solid defenders outside. The question becomes how the middle is manned.
I see JR, Johnson and Lee being solid down there. This group could be a mixture of Cousins and Co rebounding and Davis and Co shot blocking. If you bring back WCS this group can be better at both.
That was an encouraging video, almost sounded like he was repeating company lines from Cal, but I'm getting ready to dig my heels in. We know how this goes, all of a sudden there's pro UK sentiment and then it starts swinging the other way up until time to commit. I'm betting this recruitment is wild all the way up to the finsh.

I get your point, but it won't be as wild if you block out some of the noise. If he picks anyone else at this point all people familiar with the situation should be floored.
I just wonder what there draft will look like. It's basically the potential for seven teams to have uk players the first eight
