    Does this help/hurt with Barnes?

    John Wall commits to Kentucky Wildcats - ESPN

    Not sure if this has already been pointed out, but was just wondering how this affects Barnes if in any way....

    Doesn't hurt us at all. John Wall is one and done and so EVEN if Barnes were to committ to Kentucky (which he won't), he wouldn't play with him anyway

    Probably not since John Wall will be one and done player.

    I would want to go to Kentucky if I was a highly touted basketball recruit with Coach Cal now at the helm. Coach Cal + 24,000 fans + Kentucky Tradition = Expect a national championship soon

    I must have missed something; Calipari recruited tons of talent to Memphis. Are they in some sort of trouble? Fill me in...

    There have always been rumors with Coach Cal since his time at UMASS about some recruiting violations. I don't believe anything has ever completely surfaced.

    Cal definitely recruits talent, but has had some shady incidents in the past. At UMASS his star Marcus Camby got caught taking $40,000 from agents, and there was a scandal with prostitutes. He also was one of the first to start paying his recruits friends and relatives when he hired DeJuan Wagners fathers as head of basketball operations (for 400k a year) and gave his friends scholarships.
