Skal Labissiere is set to announce his college decision on ESPNU Thursday and many think his choice will be Kentucky or Memphis but what many don't know is that Skal's senior year in high school could turn in to a mess. As of now Skal is being home schooled for his senior season which creates a question where will Skal play this season. His father has started a prep school team called Reach Your Dreams Prep and it looks as if Skal will be playing for them this season but here is the kicker that team is not registered under the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association which basically means their games won't count. This has caught my interest because Kentucky is known for all the McDonalds All-Americans they get and because of Skal's school situation means it's high a possibility that he will not be eligible to play in the McDonalds All-American game in April. Read what the Sporting News reported on the rules of the McDonalds nominations of players.
"It also means he won't be eligible to participate in the McDonald's All-American game — a hallmark event reserved for the nation's top seniors.
Only high school students enrolled in private or public accredited high schools who play on private or public varsity teams are eligible for nomination, the game's Nomination and Selection Chair Administrator, Terri Lynn Wootten told Sporting News in an email."
Universirty of Kentucky Coach John Calipari was in the Nations Capital this past weekend. One reason was to visit 5 star, 2016 prospect V.J. King. NextCats.com broke it down.
Calipari stopped at Paul VI Catholic High School in Fairfax, Va., to visit with V.J. King, a five-star prospect in the class of 2016. King is in his first season at Paul VI after transferring from a school in Akron. Scout.com ranks him as the No. 12 overall prospect in the junior class.
The Basketball season has begun but that doesn't stop coach Cal from going after some of his top high school targets in an aggresive manner.
Isaiah Briscoe is one of Cal's top targets and people are starting to whisper that he is Kentucky's to lose. This is significant for the fact that just a couple of weeks ago everybody thought Briscoe was locked in with the St. John Redmen. Zack Braziller is a writer for the New York post and he tweeted the other day that he is hearin that Briscoe is all Kentucky.
