Could Eric Bledsoe Return to UK?

Jonathan Givony of, posted the following tweets today on Eric Bledsoe and his decision to stay in the 2010 NBA Draft, or to return to Kentucky.

If Eric made the choice to return, he would bolster an already strong back court and would provide some much-needed experience in that position.

The guard position would look include Knight, Bledsoe, Lamb, Hood, Dodson (if he returns), Liggins and a switch player in Miller. I say that because there has been some discussion that Miller may play the 4 spot in the upcoming year, or could switch in and out of the 4 spot when needed.

Kentucky would be loaded with talent in the back court and, unless we sign C. J. Leslie or Terrence Jones, could be short in the front court. A front court, that as of now, consist of Josh Harrellson, Enes Kanter and Stacey Poole.

Here is what Jonathan reported on Twitter:

Then came out with the following article about Jonathan’s Twitter report. Here are some excerpts of the article:

Interesting to note that as Patrick Patterson, John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins have announced they are forgoing their remaining college eligibility and staying in the 2010 NBA Draft, the uncertain situation of freshman point guard Eric Bledsoe has gone unnoticed.

Bledsoe, who declared for the NBA Draft a couple of weeks ago, has yet to announce whether or not he’s staying in the draft. did not say what its source was in the report, but by all accounts the website is one of the more reputable NBA Draft sites.

Bledsoe was never thought to be a one-and-done player until he exploded onto the scene this year.

Underclassmen that don’t sign with an agent have until May 8 to withdraw from the NBA Draft. There has been no word as to whether Bledsoe or freshman forward Daniel Orton have signed with agents.

Stay tuned for updates…
