Dear Gary (on Brandon Knight and Josh Selby)

Here's Friday's Dear Gary ...

Dear Gary: Time for a recruiting update and what your crystal ball is telling you about some of the top recruits. I remember last year when you did your projections on where some of the top recruits would be going. It kills me to say, on most accounts, you were spot on. Xavier Henry, John Wall, etc. Yeah I gave you credit for Henry to Memphis (even though he ended up at Kansas when John Calipari left for Kentucky). Let's get an update, please? Your opinion is always valued, regardless of what the no life trolls on the boards have to say.

-- Jake

For now, let's just focus on the two best prospects still on the board -- Brandon Knight and Josh Selby.

My prediction?

One will go to Kentucky, the other to Kansas.

It could go either way.

But with Tyler Smith's gun to my head, I'd say the most likely scenario is Knight to Kentucky, Selby to Kansas.

Gary i think your off on both predictions one right now Uconn is not a distant third for Knight they are either one or two.  Knight's high school coach says Knight fits in great with Uconn, and would be a great fit with that team.  Also on Selby i think the longer the recruiting goes on the better chance Arizona has at him but don't count out Uconn some how they made his final four and is visiting for the Louisville game

Gary you pegged it exactly as I would I think UK and KU and both schools win. I also say Knight to UK, Selby to KU, being a KU fan i want either both are gonna be amazing. Selby visiting KU 2 times once on his wallet, and mom one time saying she would visit even if her son couldnt, makes me really believe Selby will be in a KU uni next year.

Maybe you've not watched UK this year.  I think Bledsoe looks good playing next to Wall, one of the best guard tandems in college basketball.  I'm sure if either Selby or Knight comes to UK they will play beside Eric Bledsoe.  You sound like many of those Memphis posters that criticized Bledsoe for his decision to join UK.  Guess what Mr. Negative Bledsoe is avergage about 30 minutes and 11.5 pts. per contest.

I think I read where a member of Knight's family lives in Lexington and works for Lexmark.  Of course if they don't, Cal can make that happen for them.  Saw that enough for myself.  Only question in my mind is whether or not Knight want's to sit behind Bledsoe or if Bledsoe would have to ride the pine again behind an elite level PG.  Poor poor eric, or should I call you Willie.  If you don't know what I'm talking about ask Gary Parish.

World Wide Wes has already said his "nephew" Brandon Knight will be heading to KY, so i don't know what all the mystery is about.  I'd be shocked if Knight went anywhere else.

UConn is a distant 3rd for Knight. Calhoun's last great PG is riding the pine for Memphis behind Mike Conley ???? Meanwhile Calipari's last 2 PGs are already elite level players and stars in the league. Knight is a very smart kid (4.0 GPA) and knows Calipari is the one to get the most out of him and get him ready for the pros.  Either way, both Brandon and Josh are superb players, and both UK and KU would not complain either way.

Knight to Uconn ... "So let it be written.  So let it be done."
