According to multiple sources according to Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio, Kerry Blackshear Jr. has a new favorite landing spot. Throughout the whole transfer process, Kentucky has been the one consistent school at the top of his list. Now, UK has been dethroned by the Tennessee Volunteers.
We should be made aware of his decision any day now, possibly tomorrow. But until then we remain in limbo.
We are all growing tired of the this entire situation, but no one is more tired than Blackshear. He wants this to be over just as much as we do, but he has to think about his future. Kentucky may look like the obvious choice from the outside looking in, but Kentucky isn’t for everyone. Tennessee may be exactly what he needs. He’d had unlimited playing time and no competition for his position.
Up until today, I thought Blackshear was coming to Kentucky and the visiting of other schools was just a formality. Now, I’m not so sure. This is all beginning to feel a little bit like the Jaden McDaniels recruitment. I hope I’m wrong about that. But Juice still remains confident in Kentucky. Claiming that Kentucky is the best team for him to further his skill and enhance his draft stock.
At the end of the day, this is Kerry Blackshear’s decision and no one else’s. We have to respect it. Under no circumstance do we need to go after a 22 year old on Twitter for choosing a college.
