    You guys are going to be shocked

    Kentucky player got paid to play professionally in Turkey. Yeah I know I was shocked to learn that a Kentucky player got paid. The poor guy only got like 100k though. He should have read the contracts of other kentucky players who are pulling in way more than that.

    Report: Kentucky recruit Enes Kanter took cash, benefits from team in Turkey - ESPN


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Make him ineligible. Thats what they did to Lucca for a year. Lucca wasnt paid, but was ineligible for a year. Stay consistent NCAA!

    I hope our director of compliance sends a reminder to the NCAA that a similar situation came in front of them with Lucca and he had to sit a year.

    I can assure you, he was the only Kentucky player to have been paid...

    Re: You guys are going to be shocked

    If he can't play (which it looks like) than Kentucky won't be nearly as good next year. Kanter is a stud. Best recruit they have....which is saying a lot

    Re: How will the NCAA rule?

    Reminds me of a German kid that played here and ditched us.

    If this guy plays one game we should get CJ Bruton for four years. He'd still be in his early 30s right???????

    Re: How will the NCAA rule?

    The german kid that played here didn't receive any money. Getting over $100K to play basketball pretty much disqualifies you from playing College Basketball IMO. BUT somehow I wonder if he finds his way into Kentucky with a 3 game suspension.

    Re: You guys are going to be shocked

    This has got to be tough for Calipari. I mean, this player got paid before he got to Kentucky by someone not at all related to Kentucky. It's kinda like when you get married and then find out that your new bride is more experienced than you expected.

    Re: You guys are going to be shocked

    The center that they got has a dad that was asking 200,000 for his son to attend the school. Some writer wrote a story about it. Then the kid commits to Kentucky a week later. You would think Kentucky would be like WHOOOAAA. You can't come here kid. We already have all eyes on our recruiting and this just looks bad. However, they took him in a heart beat.

    Re: How will the NCAA rule?

    The 100K he got in Europe, is only half of what Kentucky is rumored to pay the recruit they got for 2011.

    The NCAA will look at it and he won't play for Kentucky at all. The kid will not even be in college by the time practice starts. Although he will get drafted by some NBA team in the spring.
