Four-star Patterson may reclassify to 2019, discusses leaders

One of the class of 2020's top wing players,
Addison Patterson

has adjusted to a new situation and has schools prioritizing him as he prepares to decide not only a school but whether or not to remain in 2020 or enroll as a 2019 prospect.


Illinois: "I just like how real (Brad Underwood) is with me. He's saying that he needs me to come in and make an impact and that they really need me and that they really want me to come there. I could play right away and I'd maybe like to accept that role."

Hopefully this kid commits to us for next year.
 
Didn’t see that one coming at all.

Even the analysts were saying he was planning on taking more visits.

He was all over the place with his recruitment.
Man, Georgia is bringing in a top class. Says Crean worked at an adidas camp after Indiana. That was a much smarter move to build relationships than working on tv!!

Since I tweeted this out two hours ago, Justin Pierce has heard from AZ, ND, Ohio St., NW, Illinois, BC, Stanford, USC, Michigan, Wisconsin., Butler, Gonzaga, Ga Tech, DePaul, Nevada and Ole Miss. Safe to say he’ll be a highly sought-after grad transfer.

William & Mary’s Justin Pierce, a two-time all-CAA guy, told @Stadium he will leave as a grad transfer. Put up 14.9 points, 8.9 boards and 4.1 assists this season.

Have we shown any interest in Blake Peters from Evanston? Showed some pretty good 3 pt shooting last year in Peoria. 7-8 from 3 tonight as a sophomore against Rockford East. Not terribly big but, solid. 6’1”-185 according to program. Not going create his own shot much though did have a nice finish at the rim tonight. His 3 pt shooting is uncanny.

It's a shame we can't grab these guys when they come through the first time. He would have been the same class as Tejon Lucas and if I remember correctly we had an open scholarship that year.

 
Zero chance unless Cal leaves unfortunately.

Both Whitney and Brooks will start for UK next year. UK fans say Herro, Keldon J, and Washington all are turning pro, so they'll have plenty of PT available on the wing.
All this is true. I live in Kentucky there is no way kw comes here. Calipari I don't believe will make the jump to NBA, dude has his dream job and has it made guy is Jesus around here. It makes me sick.

He had zero high major offers. Some kids just work that butt off and get better. He has a smooth stroke and gets it off pretty quick. Looks kinda like Duncan Robinson from Michigan. Yes, I probably only made that connection because they're both white lol.

I feel your pain....I live over 4 hours away and the " Jesus " complex exists here also....UK would rather cheat and win a championship and if they get caught they have told me " SO WHAT , WE WON AND THATS ALL THAT MATTERS " and they really mean it....

Underwood needs to get this kid. He is the shooter we need. Edit - looks like his 3pt shooting took a big dip this year from 41.6 to 32.4. Wonder why. He looks very athletic. He can dunk with more authority than probably any guy on Illinois outside of Tevian

We can pass on these kids when we have players like Luke Kusabke in the mix
