    I totally agree on the thought that at UK...a kid who hasn't started a game in high school yet...will not be getting much playing time...for a long time at UK. Sure he has great potential...but the guys walking onto the court at UK are a year from the NBA. The selling point for Butler is a lot stronger than what UK can sell...unless the starry eyed factor just overwhelms him. I think not. Seems his family has a good handle on all of it.

    It wouldn't be too hard to sell him on the similarities between his arc and Anthony Davis', who was pretty much set on going to Cleveland State.

    I am sure that is what they will do. Hell, Anthony Davis might even be the one who does it.

    Hope he doesn't go to UK solely to win a championship because that's not going to happen anytime soon.

    Uhhhh...wut? UK has an absolutely loaded roster and unlike other years, not every player looks like a sure fire 1 and done this year. Next year's Kentucky team might be one of the best Cal hasn't had at Kentucky. With high level sophomores and another round of 5* recruits. With how Cal recruits literally every year could be the one that wins it all.

    Seems like Cal is trying to find another 4 year player to anchor the roster. In the championship years, they have had upper class men to go with the new talent.

    Nah. They always blow it. Unless there is a kid like Anthony Davis again, they're not winning anything.

    I wonder how committable the UK offer is.

    It sounded like it was coming down to X and Texas before the UK offer, that obviously blows everything up...and understandably so.

    That is a hot take. With that in mind - the only team that can say you could come there to win a national championship is... Duke? UNC?

    Correct, & could argue to put Arizona & Kansas in there as well for this year.

    I would leave UK & MSU out of it. They always do well but for some reason never win. Hoping Miles bridges & that team chemistry eats my words this year though. ;)

    Back to Hayes. To me, looking at all other offers on the table for UK, It doesn't seem like they're "favored" for many of them. So I would say that Hayes offer is very committable.

    Maybe Cal realized the importance of having an elder Dom Hawkins and Derek Willis on young teams. Cal can sell water to a well, but I wonder how invested he his in this offer. Bc if he wanted, he could bring in the big guns for a bbn midnight madness visit.

    Any reason to believe this isn't UK?

    Not really. If you want to stretch for a reason, I would say that right now might not be the best time to choose UK, with this FBI investigation blowing up, but that's really a reach. If anything comes out against Kentucky he can always change his mind later. That offer might not be there that long.

    Texas is getting all the votes here...somewhat of a surprise.

    Maybe the lure of a big football school won out between his dad playing and it being Jaxson's sport not that long ago.

    Interesting. This hurts more than U.K. IMO. If not U.K., we have an open 4 spot and we're first offer ....damn.

    Given the 11 crystal ball picks for Texas, I'd say he's going to be a Longhorn. But hey, at least he won't pick Xavier!
