UK lands youngest recruit in school history!

Posted by ibleedblue040 on May 1, 2008

Kentucky recieved a verbal commitment from 8th grader (2012) Michael Avery earlier this afternoon according to Catspause’s Jeff Drummond. He is working on an interview as we speak and I will update you if he gets one. Clark Francis of has Avery rated as the #2 power forward in the nation among 8th graders, he is 6’4″ already. Personally I think this might be a little too early because he might just be physically more mature than his competition, thus the domination, but apparently he plays for a 17U AAU team and does very well.

The reason this kid was not in the Web Wednesday for this week is because no one knew he was going to commit or even interested, not Catspause, Marc Maggard, or anybody.

Jeff Drummond of noted today when he broke the story that there has been another commitment today but the player does not want to reveal who they are. Drummond said news could be made any minute/day

    I have played against Avery for years, let me honestly tell you –

    This was the biggest mistake in the history of Kentucky basketball

  2. Well Kentucky can always go in another direction I mean it’s not like he has signed or anything. But why would you say that? Is he soft or what??

    Mike is the real deal. He already has NBA range, solid court skills and started rocking the rim at 14. Yes, he has a lot of development left, but the coach has a good eye. His dedication to development and the game is fanatical. Congrats to UK.

    Tony is a 6ft.5 POINT guard, not small forward. A true guard, and he’s number 1 in the nation, not top 5.

  6. Tony will not play PG in college, mark it down.
