In the foregone conclusion of the day, Stacey Poole has committed to play basketball for the University of Kentucky…but not before ESPNU made us tune in for 40 minutes. We’ll have more later this evening, but for now, I’ll just say that Poole is the first domino in what I imagine will be another top class.
Stacey Poole, with his commitment, also becomes UK’s 5th recruiter along with John Calipari and the 3 assistants. He’s already talked about his positive opinion of Brandon Knight. I mentioned it last week, but don’t think it was a coincidence that the 2 Floridians took their official visits together. Jacksonville (Poole’s hometown) and Ft. Lauderdale (Knight’s) are a few hours apart, but they will run into eachother all season long, and I would bet they won’t have a single conversation in which Poole doesn’t try to do a little recruiting.
