DeMarcus Cousins finally ended his recruitment and decided to commit to the University of Kentucky. He committed to Coach Cal when he was at Memphis and now will join him in Lexington. Cousins is the #1 power forward in the nation and now joins 5-star center Daniel Orton and 4-star wingman Jon Hood in UK’s 2009 class.
Some uncertainty remains as now the question is ‘what does Daniel Orton do?’. Orton may back out and sign with Kansas or Oklahoma or there is still a chance he stays committed even though a couple future pros are playing in front of him.
In an article from Jerry Meyer Cousins indicated what he plans to do next:
“I’m working on John Wall and Xavier Henry right now,” he said. “I think we have a chance to get them.”
