Who to believe in Tony Woods’ recruitment?

Big Blue Nation is abuzz this morning over the eighth paragraph of an Andy Katz story on ESPN which seems to say that Tony Woods is coming to Kentucky.

The excerpt:

“The school did a full-blown hearing,” said Grace, who also once represented former Wake Forest center Tony Woods in an assault case dealing with his girlfriend and the mother of their child that was dropped down to a no contest on the assault charge. Woods was dismissed from Wake Forest for the semester and Grace said the one-time Louisville commit told him he will likely go to Kentucky.

But on Sunday, Woods’ former coach suggested that Texas was the leader.

The excerpt:

Maynard noted that Woods entered Wake Forest with Al-Farouq Aminu with the understanding that the two would play together and then enter the NBA together. Aminu played for the Los Angeles Clippers this past season. As for Woods, he attended a two-year school in Louisville this academic year after asking for his release from Wake Forest because of the bad publicity surrounding the incident with his girlfriend and a subsequent suspension by Coach Jeff Bzdelik.

“Tony still has aspirations to play pro ball,” Maynard said. “I’m sure the chance to play right away makes it more favorable for Texas.”

Of course, the question remains should Kentucky take Woods, considering his past conviction on an assault charge. There’s still time to vote in the poll.
