Now since Callipari is going to Kentucky. If Patrick Patterson & Jodie Meeks stay will Kenutcky be better? Is any Memphis prospect going to follow or undecided? I would like to DeMarcus Cousins go to Kenutcky, which I heard is likely. Xavier Henry also going would be amazing, but Meeks would be point guard then. Also, Lance Stephenson is still undecided, but I don't believe he will go to Kentucky.
In my Opinion, at least one of the following recruits will be coming to UK next year: DeMarcus Cousins, John Wall, Xavier Henry.
This is some pretty good company for UK fans. Also, i expect at least Meeks to stay in uniform and doubt Patterson to go.
This could be a super nasty squad. A starting lineup of John Wall,Jodie Meeks,Xavier Henry,Patrick Patterson,and Cousins in the middle??!??!?!?!? Who would beat them? Is it fair? Omg this is a ridiculous squad if all of them come to Kentucky and Patterson and Meeks stay. The only problem would be getting everybody a fair share of production..
I think Cousins goes to Kentucky, Henry goes to Kansas, and Wall goes to Duke. Then if Henderson comes back to Duke, Aldrich and Collins come back to Kansas, and Patterson and Meeks come back to Kentucky, then Duke, Kansas and Kentucky will all be ranked in the top 3.
i think that xavier henry will end up at kansas, i heard he chose memphis because his brother plays there and because of coach cal. it was between kansas and memphis before and i think he commits there. i believe his parents went to kansas. also, if cousins comes to kentucky, what will happen to their other freshman center coming in? will he stay or will he leave? less minutes with cousins there. i think they will get a mixture of good and bad. they will be a tournament team though.
Coach K offered him a scholarship this sunday and told him he was going to use him the same way he used Jason Williams. Wall then said "It was great. I've heard all I needed to hear." And his ailing mother loved Duke and wants him to stay in NC.
Too bad the next day he said he would seriously consider following Calipari to Memphis. Out of everyone (Henry/Cousins/Wall) Wall is the biggest game changer, so whichever program lands him will be instantly amazing. If it is Duke, we for sure would be ranked #1 going into next season. Look at this lineup-
PG: Wall (5 star)
SG: Henderson (5 star)
SF: Singler (5 Star)
PF: Thomas (4 Star)
C: Mason Plumlee (4 Star)
then our backups
PG: Nolan Smith (4 star)
SG: Elliot Williams (5 star)
SG/SF: Scheyer (4 star)
PF: Ryan Kelly (5 star)
C: Miles Plumlee (4 star)
With 5 star zoobek never seeing playing time!!
Thats a terrifying lineup with experience, athleticism, and skill. Henderson probably won't leave after his awful tournament- all the NBA GMs have him out of the lottery now.
God I hope Wall comes to Duke.
As athletic as he is, Mason Plumlee isn't starting next year for Duke.
Expect the same lineup as the Blue Devils have used this year with Nolan Smith or John Wall starting and Henderson gone pro.
Gerald Henderson wont come back to duke
If they all do follow coach Cal to Kentucky, that team would be nuts.. they also have a few frosh who will be turning sophomores next year who were big recruits (Deandre Liggins- 6"6 pg and Darius Miller) along with Perry Stevenson who is a two year starter coming back. Even if KU added just Cousins or just Wall that teams gonna be nice, granted meeks and/or patterson come back. sick group of players
Henderson will be in the NBA and Plumlee won't be starting.
and as for UK, they NEED a pg so bad
