And we know this how? Or a better question, what is a "direct source"?
When 0440 posts, I listen. I don't know where it comes from, but it definitely is what I hear as well more often than not.

Take the speculation for what it's worth. I hate posting anything because if I'm wrong because a 17yr old kid changes his mind or his parent helps him change his mind, everyone comes after me.

I'm here to engage with other fans.

LOL. Guess I understand your confusion. I like to hear what schools are in on what players. where kids are visiting. etc. But if a kid is going to commit to us, it doesn't much matter to me if I get the news hours in advance. Quite frankly, I've found some of the stealing of thunder to be sad.
Okay, now I am with you.

Bolded very much can agree with if it is bluntly stated. That’s why I at least appreciate the ‘Boom’ gif, in that if you’re a Kentucky “journalist,” it is a reliable enough source to change the narrative on Kofi without explicitly saying “Kofi.”

I really don't care what TyTy thinks about Illinois. That's not a slam on him. I can't name two players on the Kentucky roster. Heck, I can't name two players on most B1G rosters (at least until the season gets underway). It doesn't make sense to claim Illinois is irrelevant when Kentucky poached two coaches and considered trying to poach a player from Illinois. Since he has no Illinois ties, I don't wish him well or otherwise. He is irrelevant to me.

I don’t buy the “I can’t name more than 1 player on your roster” line at all. We were recruiting him pretty hard and he said good things while we were recruiting him so I really doubt he went through that and never learned a second player’s name on the roster.

Yeah he knows damn well who Andre is. He’s trying to be coy.

I would love to match up with UK somehow this season. I’m down here in semi UK territory in deep southern IL.

Unfortunately Curbelo won’t get to take his cookies since we won’t be in the CBI. 😉
Let’s not go overboard and suggest UK is going to the CBI. even if you want to say they won’t make the ncaa, the NIT won’t pass them up no matter what their record is.

What's the appeal of Penn St. over us for a kid like that? Is there a personal or family connection there?
His brother played FB at Penn State and just went in the 1st round to the Ravens last spring.

Also, Jimmy John's was acquired by Inspire Brands, which owns Arby's, BWW, Sonic, and Dunkin. Most of their office was let go or moved to Atlanta. I wouldn't call them a local company any longer.
Monopoly? Dang......do we have any other big dogs? Confident we have adequate resources.
