Wow, how’s this for a surprise?
Consensus top player in the 2011 class and the best player in all of high school according to many, Michael Gilchrist, will announce his college choice tomorrow on ESPNU’s signing day special. On this same program, Rivals.com’s top 2010 player Brandon Knight will announce his commitment.
Regarding Gilchrist, there are really only two choices: Kentucky and Villanova. Gilchrist has been long thought a player who will end up playing for John Calipari, regardless of where he is coaching. He has been to Lexington on more than one occasion. He has also visited Villanova multiple times, as he resides in nearby New Jersey.
Although ‘Nova is very much in the mix, it will be a surprise if he goes anywhere else but UK with John Calipari at the helm. UK is the favorite in both big announcements tomorrow, making Wednesday April 14 potentially a day to remember for ‘Cats fans.
I will have a full Spring Signing Period primer later this evening, so check back later.
