I knew all along Bamba was a different type of guy and his decision would be unlike many prep stars before him. I always hoped UK would win out due to the connections with Green, Hami, Vanderbilt, Knox, etc., but in the end I knew Mo would do his own thing.


    I wish him nothing but the best!

    Figured the longer this went, that it wasn't UK. Read his letter and he seems like a very smart kid that made the choice he felt was best for him. Best of luck to the kid.

    Not so sure that the lack of development Bam showed last year, and him playing out-of-position as a back to the basket center; didn't factor in a bit as well. Jarrett Allen's improvement was cited often as a factor? Sounds like he liked their business program as well, and it can't hurt that he'll be featured?

    Agree. I always appreciate his info as I know it is something we can believe.

    Really enjoy your insight on evaluating talent. But, smug and arrogant doesn't look good on you.

    Sounds to me that the kid chose what he feels to be the right fit for him.

    I like to go with what Cal says all the time to recruits "Kentucky isn't for everyone". It obliviously for whatever reasons wasn't for Bamba.

    Good luck to the young man!!!!
