Anthony Bennett - Amile Jefferson Watch; Will they Choose Kentucky?

I must admit that I have been watching Anthony Bennett way more than I have Amile Jefferson. We posted a tweet with regard to Noel's opinion with regard to Bennett's recruitment by UK, and he said we have slightly better than a coin flip's chance of landing Bennett. That can only be interpreted as Bennett is highly interested in another school, likely Florida.

As far as Amile Jefferson is concerned Scout indicates that Jefferson only has medium interest in the Cat's. Duke and NC State seem to be Jefferson's one and two. We may be able to count out NC State as he may not get the playing time he expected as C.J Leslie is returning for another year.

Right now I say we have a 50/50 shot of landing Bennett and only a 30% shot at landing Jefferson but Calipari is a master at snagging late recruits. Calipari's sales pitch is simply unmatched in D1 Basketball. So we do have a true "Calipari effect" in play here. We know that pitch has already been presented to Anthony Bennett but according to one of Jefferson's coaches UK has not been in contact with Jefferson's people, but I would take that quote with a grain of salt.

The bottom line is we truly need Bennet, or Jefferson, to fill out our style of play dance card for the next year.
