Anderson spurns Oregon

Missouri's Mike Anderson has spurned an offer by Oregon to be it's next head coach.

Nike officials want big name; Oregon hierarchy want good coach.

Tennessee making late push for Selby

Earlier this week, we reported that Josh Selby would commit to Kansas, and at this point, according to various sources, we still feel that to be the case.

That said, in recent days (about the last 35 hours), Tennessee has made it's way into contention with Selby with connections outside of Bruce Pearl. There has been some scuttle that Tennessee may in fact land the guard, who parents aren't fond of the Flex Offense that is implemented by Pearl and Tennessee. Could Selby land in Tennessee? Possibly, but not probable.

At this point, the signs that I feel are the strongest point to Kansas. But with recruiting, everything is fluid and a kid can change his mind - remember that.

I am expecting some more information in the next hour, and will update you then.

Selby, Lamb, Leslie Update

Josh Selby has told the Kansas staff that he wants to play for the Jayhawks. We expect him to choose Kansas, but with recruiting, anything can happen.

Doron Lamb will commit to Kentucky tomorrow during the Jordan Game, in similar fashion as Selby to Kansas. A lot of people thought Kentucky had cooled on Lamb and that he may have been Kansas-bound, but Calipari put focus on Knight as PG and Lamb as SG and landed the tandam he wanted.

CJ Leslie is a little blurry. He seemed all but a lock for Kentucky at one point, but reports recently are saying he may instead go back to NC State. In my opinion, I would say 50/50. My sources around Leslie aren't as positive what his decision is compared to other players.

We'll have an update on Quincy Miller, Marquis Teague, and Tony Wroten Jr. in the next few days, and I may update tonight on Terrence Ross and Terrence Jones.

Knight commits to Kentucky

Brandon Knight has told the Kentucky coaches he will wear blue next year.

Brandon will make a public announcement at 4:00est.

Source: Oregon wants Anderson

Oregon looks like it will offer their head coaching job to Missouri's Mike Anderson. Oregon has swung and missed at several big names, and I think it continues here.

I expect Anderson to turn this job down and wouldn't be surprised if he left for Arkansas next year, when I think it will open up.

Ray McCallum will sign with father

Ray McCallum will sign with his father's team, Detroit University.

Not that it is any surprise.

Memphis offers Thornton

Memphis has sent an offer to Marcus Thornton, Mr. Basketball in Georgia. Thornton has offers from Memphis, Kentucky, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and others.

More in a few...
