Knight, Gilchrist Commit to UK; McCallum to UDM

Coach Cal does it again — signing the No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2010 and 2011 on the same day. McDonald’s All-American Ray McCallum Jr announced he will play for his pops at the University of Detroit – Mercy.

    knight isn’t really the top player in 2010, that honor goes to barnes, but a nice get none the least – but he’s no wall; gilchrist, on the other hand i like but he really needs to straighten out his jumper and hope he’s not done growing like he says

    Knight betrays the hometown school in Florida. No problem, we will still dominate without him at florida. He past up on playing in the backcourt with future all-american kenny boynton. He will get worn out big time as the season goes and defenses key in on stop knight, who will he pass the ball to, Stacey Poole, what joke. John Calipari system only works when you are surrounded by great players. And one great player in Knight is not even close to getting it down. Good luck wildcat fans. I’m gonna enjoy seeing Florida whip your butt by at least 20 pts. Go Gators!!!!!!!!

    Good thing there is no salary cap in NCAA.. Wonder what type of “signing bonus” Coach Cal is giving out these days..

    Trey Zeigler also signed to play for his dad at Central Michigan. The secret is out! All you mid-majors looking to sign an all-American: hire their pops as the coach!

    “Still” dominate? How many tourney wins your boys got the last three years, Big O? Scratch that — how many tourney berths?

  • mike c.

    How do you spell revolving door? K-E-N-T-U-C-K-Y.

  • thalilbigkahuna

    Dang it, I really wanted Nova to get Gilchrist. Oh well.

  • Logues

    ppl dont go with coach cal to win championships, they sign with him to be one and done and make themselves look good for the nba draft

  • Kendo

    Too bad these two will never play together

  • Noel

    @ Big O, he can pass to kanter or the other two 5-star recruits that will follow him to UK

  • Coney Islander

    Damn the 2011 lockout will make them stay in school or go to europe.

    Gilchrist should have come up here and played College basketball in Canada he would average 60/ 10 and 10 .

  • Incubo

    Big O as much as I wanted BK to come to Florida I don’t think he would have fitted into the system with Erving Walker already at the point. He still would have got alot of clock but he would have had to give a lil for Erving Walker or cut into Kenny’s time. I just don’t see it working out….Oh and Ryan we haven’t done much in the last 3 years but we are still one of the teams to beat when it comes down to it.

  • JD

  • JD

    Still,spose its not that bad if i was Coach Cal i’d start to aim my recruiting at players who are good, but not good enough for one and done

  • kriz
