This Seems Doubtful (John Wall)
During his press conference today, uber-talent John Wall indicated he might be in Lexington longer than some people think. Or not:
His plan is to go to UK for 2-3 years but if Cal says after a year it’s his time to go to the NBA, then he’s going to go.
I get the impression Wall is measuring years the same way his coach does. As I referred to yesterday, John Calipari said he’d need around four years to get the program back to where it once was. In the meantime, Kentucky has grabbed the top-rated recruiting class, headlined by Wall; had Patrick Patterson pull his name from NBA Draft consideration and been anointed as the 2009/10 National Champions without even playing a game.
So much for four years — much like the idea of having a player of Wall’s caliber on campus longer than one season.
