In the Twitter age, recruits now often communicate virtually, and Tony Wroten, the 6’4″ PG from the class of 2011, has decided to update recruiters and fans of his list of schools using the new platform:
Tony lists his top five (in Twitter-speak) as Kentucky, Washington, Connecticut, Villanova and Syracuse (in that order).
Brandon Knight (PG/SG, 6’3″, 2010) still has to announce, and several schools are watching as close as possible, not the least of which being Kentucky. It’s expected that Kentucky will lose PG John Wall after this season and possibly lose Eric Bledsoe as well. Knight would be a welcome addition to fill in, especially if Bledsoe returns and Knight can play some off guard. According to our old pal Adam Zagoria, Kentucky may have the inside track with Knight’s parents.
The future is very bright for Brandon Knight (PG/SG, 6’3″, 2010) , who is still weighing his college basketball options between Kentucky, Syracuse, Connecticut, Florida and Kansas. Knight is one of the top players in the 2010 class and has just repeated as the Florida Gatorade Player of the Year , his home state:
Already named to the McDonald’s All-American and Jordan Brand Classic All-American teams, Knight’s stellar senior season has put him in position to repeat as the Gatorade National Player of the Year.
Although a late season injury prevented Knight from a three-peat of the state title, top programs around the nation are eagerly awaiting where he’s going to commit. He’s recently stated that he will announce after the McDonald’s All American game is out of the way later this month.
