McDonald’s Media Day is Creating Lots of UK Chatter

UK Recruit C. J. Leslie

Jody Demling of the is reporting that McDonald’s Media Day is full of UK chatter. Five of the seven guys in the game that are undecided on a university still have the Wildcats on their possible lists of schools, chatter is running high.

Jody reported “The biggest news from the interviews seems to be each of the five UK targets have been told five underclassmen are leaving for UK. Raleigh (N.C.) forward C.J. Leslie – a former teammate of UK freshman John Wall – actually corrected me when I asked him a question about guys leaving and said, “No, five are going.” I had asked how much of an impact it would have on his decision if three or four guys declared for the NBA Draft.”

Brandon Knight, “Slipped up and used the word “we” when asked a UK question by WKYT’s Steve Moss in an interview. But I spent a lot of time with Knight and he said over and over again that who comes or goes won’t have an impact on his final decision. Knight said he has “not made a final decision,” despite all the rumors that he has already made a verbal commitment to the UK staff.

Coach Calipari has a the 2010-11 season riding on the line with who comes and who goes. if what is being said is true, filling eight seats will be no easy task.

Grabbing two or maybe three of the remaining five would be a huge recruiting class for Calipari, especially when you add in Poole and Kanter who have already committed to the Big Blue.

Bottom line is who and how will Coach Cal fill all the slots going into the 2010-11 season?
