    After talking to some national insiders, I wouldn't be so sure of that. Apparently Wiseman and Jefferies are not close and playing together isn't exactly at the top of their priority list. The situation at Memphis is going to be such an interesting case study...

    I don’t really care either way.

    Just thought it was interesting insight from a few folks I trust on the national scene as everyone is assuming the decommitment meant both were now likely to stay home. If Wiseman doesn’t care for Jefferies, Penny is in a tough spot...

Either way it definitely helps Dontaie, hopefully with that spot open he gets the offer and some playing time!
    I'm as big of Dontaie Allen's fan as anybody, but Jeffries is 100% not worried about battling Allen for playing time. Jeffries played with CP3's AAU team this past week at his tournament....probably some promises and movement happening during that week. The cameras continued to point to Penny Hardaway in the stands. Could all be coincidence.

    He wanted to play with Wiseman, but Wiseman said no thanks two weeks in a row. That's why he ended up with CP3...

    Any chance UK offers two kids from Kentucky in the 2019 class? They haven’t done that since ‘13 either.

    Kyky Tandy. There are 3 top 100 kids in Kentucky right now; Tandy, Johnson, and Allen. I think IF UK offers 2 it’ll be Tandy and Allen

    By a source to be nameless, can anyone verify that there are some possible parental obstacles with KyKy. No facts here, just helicoptering parenting obstacles?
