In case you missed it, Scout’s Evan Daniels reported last night that Anthony Bennett is no longer considering Kentucky.
The 6-foot-8 forward from Las Vegas is reportedly down to UNLV and Oregon.
This comes on the heels of Xavier transfer Mark Lyons announcing that he has picked Arizona over UK and Kansas. Although, the Cats not getting Lyons is no great loss. Good player. Questionable attitude.
Does this mean UK is done for the Class of 2013? Well, not exactly. John Calipari has said he would like to sign one more player.
There are reports that the Cats are now turning up the heat on Philadelphia area prospect Amile Jefferson, who is thought to be leaning toward North Carolina State but has not made a commitment.
There is still Torian Graham, but there are some eligibility issues there that must be addressed. There is also Mislav Brzoja, the Indiana guard who recently visited the Cats.
Update: Should have mentioned Wright State guard Julius Mays who is transferring and reportedly considering UK, along with Michigan State, Purdue, Cincinnati and Michigan.
