BU is a big Johnson guy.

Glad Tate got to write an article regarding Liddell based on this boards whispers. I kid, but at least that’s how it came across to me.

Does he have legitimate sources anymore, or is he grasping at rumors to get clicks?

Tate is full of it and has always been. The next time he's right on rumors will be the first.

We're going to need to keep recruiting AJ Storr until we get that ink dry on his NLI. All the big boys are gonna end up coming after him, committed to us or not.
Yes they will and Chin will go after him night and day until he gets a flip. I know they say OA and CC are leaving professionally and not trying to flip any recruits, but when Calipari says make it happen, you make it happen.

It sucks that we can't get excited about recruits until they have actually gotten to campus. Seems "committing" isn't really a good word for this process anymore.

If Storr has a relationship with Coleman, he may opt to follow him. He's had no opportunity to develop any feeling for Illinois yet, and Kentucky basketball is not exactly a downgrade.

If Chin works Storr to get him to Kentucky, it's unethical. But what if Storr just wants to go?

I have similar fears regarding Curbelo and Antigua. From what I understand, Antigua has known him since he was a kid. I fear the transfer portal.

As of right now, Storr is maybe ranked in the top 150. I'm sure that'll change down the line, but I'm willing to bet Kentucky has a few top 30 guys way ahead of their priority list for 2022.

Edit: 247 must've forgotten to add Storr to this priority list
