Big Tim’s Insider Info Kentucky Edition Volume 2.
Updated: Oct 17, 2019
This is what I have from my Kentucky sources:
Staff expects to get public commitments from these players in Early signing period in this order:
Class of 2021 Devin Askew 6’3” point guard Of Mater Dei(CA) sometime this month.
Class of 2021 Paolo Banchero 6’9” forward of O’Dea(Seattle) around Thanksgiving.
Class of 2020 6’7” point guard Cade Cunningham of Montverde Academy(FL) by way of Arlington(TX) around Thanksgiving.
Devin Askew is expected to reclassify to 2020 in the Spring(this is not from staff but from my other source).
Paolo Banchero is expected to reclassify to 2020 either with his announcement or next Spring.
Cade Cunningham was expected to go to Oklahoma State where his brother is an Assistant Coach, but my sources have told me they will be hit hard with sanctions by the NCAA. This is pushing him to Kentucky. When a school hires a relative(aka John Calipari at Memphis with Milt Wagner), it has been 100% the relative will follow them to said school. It’s looking like this won’t be the case, but only because of upcoming sanctions from the NCAA.
I think if Cade Cunningham does sign with Kentucky, we get his travel ball teammate Greg Brown of Vandegrift(Austin,TX). They had a great chemistry playing with Texas Titans on Nike EYBL Circuit.
Class of 2020 6’9” forward Isaiah Jackson of Waterford Mott(MI) is down to Kentucky, Alabama, and Syracuse. Expect a early signing period with this recruitment. Not much info lately on him.
Class of 2020 6’11” Cliff Omoruyi of Roselle Catholic(NJ) will sign in the Spring. I think Kentucky gets him if they turn up the heat. Rutgers,Connecticut, Memphis, and Auburn are in the mix.
This is the latest of course recruiting changes by the hour. God Bless and Peace to the Creatures.
