New 2019 Recruiting



  • Anyone have a Rivals subscription? I saw a tweet from them saying they added a name to their “hot board” but haven’t seen any other tweets referencing a new name.

    I know Self was out recruiting yesterday / last night and wondering if he was watching someone new…



  • @BeddieKU23 Was there a recruit in last week? My daughter was on a shuttle at KCI with a tall player and coaches decked out in KU garb.

    I don’t but I will do some digging later.

    @Barney that might have been a football recruit. Did you see what coaches? Tia



  • Vernon Carey to Duke

    I’m stunned. Not. But thanks for posting it of course.



  • @Woodrow

    Duke has completely replaced UK as the featured destination for top prospects; Nike has probably realized it gets a better ROI from Duke than Kentucky. UK is no longer looking that good and fans are tired of the revolving door approach and not having players to cheer for more than a few months before they are gone. The squid must be looking at the NBA because the Kentucky natives are getting restless. Coach K will eventually retire barely one step ahead of the law.



  • @Barney

    I don’t recall any recruits being here the past week.

    Okay so knowing Shay’s dumb ass it might be Achiuwa. That would be incredibly stupid but who knows… Norm is checking in with Achiuwa tomorrow night.

    Could be Edwards, that would be equally stupid.

    I would hope it’s Enaruna, I think KU could get him.

    Hopefully someone with premium there can chime in but I can’t imagine paying for Slant premium…

    Multiple football croots though.



  • There is a picture of Achiuwa next to the article, so I would guess it’s him. Shay is clueless.

    NORM ROBERTS WAS WACTH 2020 BIG MAN HUNTER DICKINSON A 7-FOOT-2 YESTERDAY



  • @BShark

    Not so fast. Remember Ayton was his own words considering only Kansas and the famous (or infamous) crystal ball had him going to KU 100%? Recruitment is not done until the player signs with a program.

    He just looks like a Notre Dame player. Like physically. The next Harangody lol.



  • Not surprised we are circling back to Achiuwa. Big fan of him, just wish he came without baggage (handler’s etc)



  • If I were betting now, the most likley 2019 player we land is still Kai Jones. After Shaka finally gets the overdue boot.

    Knowing what I know about his situation I would disagree but crazier things have happened



  • @BeddieKU23 Right. He probably got paid to go there. But once Shaka is out, I’d bet he’s fair game again.

    Yeah and FSU went elsewhere after being out-bidded for him so if Shaka did get canned it would be interesting to see how that plays out as the incentives in play for him to still go to Texas would be hard to pass on, especially for others in his camp

    Great player. Heard he isn’t interested in college ball.



  • Enaruna is a legit possibility.

    Top 100 SF, 6’8 very athletic Euro player that is finishing high school ball in the US. Very intriguing option. Could possibly be a small ball 4 if put on 20 pounds



  • @BeddieKU23 - 247Sports shows us as “cool” interest. Dunno if that’s cool from KU or Enaruna…

    They just entered the discussion for him so if KU can gain some traction that would change

    He could always pull a Ben Simmons but Self wouldn’t let that fly.
