McDonald's All-American Josh Selby ended his recruitment Saturday by committing to Kansas.

The 6-foot-2 guard announced his decision during the Jordan Brand Classic at Madison Square Garden. MaxPreps.com ranks Selby as the No. 7 prospect in the Class of 2010. He was committed to Tennessee for about a year before famously decommitting last July. The Baltimore native considered many schools but ultimately settled on Kansas, where he'll be expected to make a major impact given the losses of Sherron Collins, Xavier Henry and Cole Aldrich.

Selby's commitment leaves just two of the top 10 prospects from the Class of 2010 uncommitted.

They are No. 6 Terrence Jones and No. 9 Cory Joseph.

Well now that we have Josh Selby, has anyone heard when Terrence Jones' official visit to KU is? He would be another fine addition to KU's line-up next year!!!

That is so obvious given the fact that all 5 starters left for the NBAThey may have declared for the draft, but i highly doubt all 5 are in the NBA within 2 years. Wall and Cousins are legit the other 3 won't ever amount to anything, Orton and Bledsoe will be lucky to get drafted. No way does the class coming in to UK replace the one they just had plus upper classman Patterson, these one and dones will never produce a final four. Rose had a ton of upperclassman when Memphis finally made their run(who'd they lose to?), but as long as Cal is at UK you'll never have any teams stick around long enough to learn how to play in late March.

    UK coach Cal seems to love to tell players that he will get them to the NBA. What an arrogant statement, especially from a guy who wasn't successful at that level. UK recruits should listen to the man closely and see if he really has any interest in their personal growth. The answer is no! At UK it's all about John Calipari.
     KU coach Self and his staff tell recruits that they can help prepare them for the next level. A true statement which shows respect for the player. Everyone knows you get to the next level with God given ability and talent. Perhaps  Coach Cal thinks he is the almighty. Let's see how he can do with x's and o's with a less talented team. I wish John Chaney would have gotten hold of him a few years back when he was leading UMass to probation.

ukalum- According to Selby it was KU all along.Tenn was considered, but KU was where he wanted to be. I don't know your sources, but these words were spoken by Josh himself. Doesn't sound like UK was really considered as seriously as you say. When are you guys going to come play at Allen Fieldhouse again?

As an outsider without a horse in the race, both Selby and Irving are better players than Knight.  I have watched every game available of those 3 and Knight doesn't compare.  I don't know where Rivals.com gets their rankings sometimes...  Even when Rivals ranked the top 5 PG in a variety of categories, they didn't have Knight ranked in the top 5 of all of them but had Irving and Selby in the top 5 of all 4 categories and had Selby ranked #1 in 2 of the 4 categories, yet they have Knight ranked ahead of him on their list.  Seriously?  Rivals is the ONLY recruiting service with Knight being the overall number 1 recruit.  Every other service has Barnes #1 and most other services don't even have Knight as the number one PG.  Quite a few of them have both Irving and Selby ahead of him.



hmmmm......Rivals.com must work for Calipari to boost recruit prospects for UK

"Great, more talent for Bill self!  Now he can get out coached and lose to teams like UNI, Bradley, and Bucknell"

Yet he's undefeated against Cal in the NCAA tournament. Which game was that again?No Favorites

As far as Kentucky "picking and choosing", let's be honest--Kentucky is getting the players that want to hear "I'll get you into the NBA". These recruits don't give a crap about Kentucky's program and the only reason Calipari is such a "recruiting genius" is because he tells these kids what they want to hear.
 

you're exactly right MarchPhog,100%
