Update On Five-Star Center Mo Bamba

Mo Bamba, the No. 2 recruit in the 2017 class, is expected to make a college decision in the near future. The  New York native, who has a 7’9 wingspan and a 9’6 standing reach, may not be headed to Kentucky, a source to Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio says:

For Bamba, I have assumed Kentucky was the leader for at least two months, and while I am still in that camp, my confidence isn’t quite on the level of most in the UK Fanbase. Up until three days ago, everyone I had spoken with said Kentucky leads and all of the circumstantial evidence, including his friendship with UK recruits and public statements, have made UK seem the obvious choice. But then I spoke with a source that is very good who said to me for the first time that UK was not getting him. While this person is against the grain and the only individual I know who believes the choice won’t be UK, it is someone with a great deal of knowledge and close to the situation. So I am left unsure of UK’s position. If I were forced to pick, I would still say Bamba to UK, but my confidence is much lower than it was last week (and I get a good test going forward for this particular type of source).

That would leave Michigan, Texas and Duke as having the strongest chance.
