John Wall to Kentucky
According to a source with knowledge of the situation, John Wall, Rivals.com's top-ranked player in the Class of 2009, has committed to Kentucky. Wall made his decision late Monday night. He chose the Wildcats over Miami (Fl.), while Duke and Florida were also among his finalists. The 6-4 point guard joins a highly-touted recruiting class that also includes five-star recruits DeMarcus Cousins, Daniel Orton and Eric Bledsoe, as well as Jon Hood and Darnell Dodson. Wall was expected to sign with Memphis before John Calipari's departure to Kentucky, and it looks like Calipari's lure was too much to pass up even with his move to Lexington.
