What is it about Wednesday?

Cheer up, Wednesday!

Could we be going from one of the most depressing Wednesdays in Kentucky basketball history when 5 Wildcats “declared” for the NBA draft to one of the best Wednesdays ever? Word on the street is that Brandon Knight is going to announce he will be attending the University of Kentucky. That announcement will come at 4PM on ESPNU. Knight will slide perfectly into the slot that John Wall is likely going to vacate. Not only is he the top player in the country for 2010, he has one of the best big men to dish to down low in Enes Kanter.

But wait, there’s more…

Michael Gilchrist is also set to make his announcement on Wednesday. Gilchrist is the top rated point guard in the 2011 class. He would, presumably, take over the soon to be vacated spot left by Brandon Knight. The future is bright for the Kentucky basketball team. Which makes the next bit of news a little easier to take…

Supposedly John Wall, Eric Bledsoe, and Patrick Patterson have all signed with agents. I’m still waiting on official word but that seems to be the way things are going.

But remember, Knight and Gilchrist are likely UK bound. And if you need any reassurance, here is what Jeff Goodman had to say via twitter:

Is there one person who follows recruiting who doesn’t think Brandon Knight and Michael Gilchrist will sign and commit to UK tomorrow? No.


Keep hearing it’s going to be quite a day for UK fans tomorrow. No recruiting combo in nation better than UK & Calipari. Not even Roy & UNC.

It’s good to be a UK fan.
