Alex Bozich of Inside the Hall has the scoop on Indiana center Mitch McGary, a 6-foot-11 prospect in Class of 2012 who has overcome academic problems to be a coveted recruit.
McGary transferred out of his home state to a New Hampshire prep school to get his grades in line, and now Kentucky is among the schools showing lots of interest in his services.
“It’s been blowing up actually the last couple of weeks,” McGary told Inside the Hall on Sunday at the adidas May Classic. “I think it’s been mainly because I moved out to Brewster. The transition out there got me better on and off the court. Grades were a factor for most schools last year, but now my grades are well.”
The list of schools in regular contact with McGary is impressive. He reeled off Duke, Texas, Arizona, Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Indiana, Purdue, West Virginia, Connecticut, Kentucky, Kansas, Memphis, Louisville and Maryland as schools showing interest.
