Things often change fast in the world of basketball recruiting, and the latest shakeup could be a huge plus for Kentucky.
247Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer had predicted Oregon as the most likely destination for Canadian combo guard Jamal Murray for months. On Monday night, it was reported that Murray was on an official visit to Kentucky, and Meyer subsequently changed his “Crystal Ball” pick to UK.
Murray is considered the No. 9 overall prospect in the class of 2016 by 247Sports, but he is contemplating a move to 2015 that would allow him to play college basketball next season.
As of early Tuesday morning, UK held a 58-percent majority of the predictions on Murray’s Crystal Ball page.
