The 6’6″ 180lb prospect commits to play for Billy Gillispie and the University of Kentucky. Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about. I can’t remember the last time that a Kentucky Kid committed to the Home State University this early.
Yes! It’s a new day. Kentucky is returning to being Kentucky. Instate talent no longer has to ponder whether being yoked by Tubby will hurt their career or NBA potential. I think that Hopson will be the last of the big time Kentucky and Regional talent to snub Kentucky.
Congrats to both Coach Gillispie and Jon Hood on a bright future together.
