Josh Selby and Brandon Knight: UConn's Jim Calhoun signed a new contract extension today. The two parties made a preliminary agreement in December but that didn't lock either party into a long term commitment. This, presumably, does, although the details of the contract and how Calhoun could step away aren't known yet. Either way, it should go a long way in soothing the worries of UConn's recruits which include Selby and Knight. Neither has made any significant moves since last we talked. Knight seems to still be trying to make up his mind on whether home or away suits him better. Home would now mean Florida, since Miami was crossed off his list earlier in the week in favor of Syracuse. Selby has left the door open to trying to work out a visit to UK in the future but that visit would most likely have to occur sometime in April, after all the tournaments are over. It'll probably also be after Knight has made his decision and UK can better assess their needs. UK will probably take two guards out of the pool of Knight, Selby, Lamb, Ross and Joseph. If Knight decides to come to UK, it then becomes a question of who is willing to join Knight at UK.
Ross and Jones: The hot rumor today was the news on the pay site HuskyDigest.com, which says that Ross and Jones have verballed to Washington. There isn't anyone that believes this one, including people that would certainly know if a verbal was given. Rest assured that UK is still in it. The first thing that surprised me about this rumor was that I don't expect Jones to make a decision until after his state playoffs are over. I would still expect that and expect UK to be in it until then.
Enes Kanter: Kanter has been quiet since his visit to UK. Teams are busy right now with their conference tournaments. Therefore, based on the Kanter source that I quoted earlier saying that UK, or any school for that matter, probably still has a little work to do to seal up a commitment, I wouldn't expect much movement to occur until after next week or even later.
