That being said, there are some twists to the story.....3 in fact.
1)Wall was cited but not arrested the other day for breaking and entering. In a vacant house. Nothing was reported missing from the house and no force was used to enter. What's this all about....weakest citation ever. I didn't know it was illegal to walk into a vacant, empty house. This really should not affect his recruitment that much, I know, some Dukies have had legal problems before playing here (Shelden accused of sexual assault, JJ with pot one time I believe). But this is definitely the weakest of the three. If K were to withdraw from the Wall Sweepstakes, then it would be a terrible mistake.
2)Eric Bledsoe, a PG we have had on the radar for a couple months, but not offered, has signed with UK. We didn't offer him because I believe Bledsoe isn't the brightest one of the bunch. According to the Devils Den, he had a 2.3 GPA, and that was the main reason we had not offered him. You almost cant even understand him when he talks. Does he drop some hints in the press conference? Does Calipari have his PG with Bledsoe or does he still want John Wall to be a part of his plans at UK. One dude asks a question to Bledsoe about if he plays with Wall there. Bledsoe's answer...."Yeah, yeah, me and Wall will get shit right". Hmm...don't think I've ever heard a high school kid cuss in his press conference. Good for him.....the only real question concerning this matter though is if Calipari will continue to pursue Wall seeing that he has signed a top PG already. We'll see.
3)Patrick Patterson is returning to UK after putting his name in the NBA draft. If Jodie Meeks does the same, that makes 16 scholarships on the team. Adding Wall makes 17. That's well a lot of scholarships......and I'm sure it's over the limit. Will Calipari, though, push some guys off the team, like he has already done, just so Wall can come? To do so would be such a prick move. Kicking a kid to the curb, who probably doesn't play though, is on scholarship but is contributing to the program every way they can, just so a prized recruit can come there is wrong. Look, Cal, you are OUT of schollys. Don't take one from a kid who is probably thrilled to be at UK, just so you can land Wall.
Well, that is pretty much what's going on with Wall right now. The most exciting part however, not mentioned above, is though that because of all the reasons above, we COULD be the leader, or in great shape to land the kid. Doesn't look like a decision is coming anytime soon though, I think last week he was supposed to cut his list, and he still hasn't! Nothing will even happen for a while though.....this whole ordeal is moving at a snail's pace. I've pretty much hit the wall (hehe) and I am bored to death with this. Every little word that Wall gives and everything that happens with him, where he eats next Tuesday night, to every time he touches a basketball will be reported and extrapolated on by the media and bulletin boards everywhere. But the sad thing is though, that NONE of it is of any worth. It is going to be forever until this kid decided where he will attend college. Stay tuned. And be warned, that anything you read on message boards, is obviously pure SPECULATION, obviously, unless it is reported by a reputable news source. Let's just hope that in the end, he ends up in Durham, we are going to need him with G leaving.
