'AAU Insider' Says Poythress Will Attend Kentucky

At least one person believes highly-touted basketball prospect Alex Poythress will attend Kentucky.

The forward from Northeast High School in Clarksville, Tenn., is considering Kentucky, Florida, Vanderbilt and Memphis.

And Keith Easterwood, who John Clay of the Lexington Herald-Leader writes is a “noted AAU insider,” believes Poythress will choose the Wildcats. That’s what Easterwood told Gary Parrish on his radio show in Memphis.

He’s going to Kentucky,” Easterwood told Parrish.

Poythress would be a big get for Kentucky. http://www./ ranks him the nation’s eighth-best power forward and No. 19 prospect overall for the class of 2012.

He’s expected to attend Kentucky’s Big Blue Madness on Oct. 14, according to the Herald-Leader.

“Kentucky is a good school,” Poythress told FiveStarBasketball.com this week. “Coach Cal (John Calipari) is a good coach. He’s a pretty good guy. He knows what he’s talking about. He’s been around basketball a long time.”

Kentucky has one commitment for 2012 – guard Archie Goodwin, who’s a five-star prospect from Little Rock, Ark.

Also heard Robert Carter is a big possibility for UK - I said this in another thread, but Carter is a LOT more similar to Coleman than Poythress. Poythress is a long athletic combo forward with good perimeter and driving skills, where as Carter and Coleman are both low block bruisers.

Poythress will be a stud, IMO. Will be interesting to see how OSU's class shapes up now and who they target to try to build around Coleman.

Willie Cauley is more of an possibility for UK than Carter at the time being.
