Basketball Recruiting

Quick basketball recruiting update: Ky Madden was on campus this weekend, and apparently he really liked what he saw. He has cancelled upcoming visits to UCONN and Oklahoma and is set to announce his commitment this Wednesday. It appears as if he will be committing to us, which is huge news for the basketball program. I was fairly certain that he would commit to us after B.J. Young (a 5-star PG) committed to Arkansas, but it is nice to see that he enjoyed his time in Oxford and seems certain of his decision. You can read an article about his visit and potential commitment here: http://www.cuttingdownnets.com/2010/09/27/ky-madden-likely-to-ole-miss-does-obryant-follow/

I think it is important to mention the timing of his commitment (this angle is also discussed in the article above). He is set to commit Wednesday, and the coaching staff will be entertaining Johnny O'Bryant, the all-world center from Cleveland, MS on Thursday. I would imagine the coaches asked Madden to commit before they got O'Bryant on campus so they could use that as a selling point. It will be interesting to see how O'Bryant's recruitment plays out. We would be putting together one of the top recruiting classes in the country (gulp, uncharted waters for Rebel hoops) if O'Bryant joins Madden and Ladarius White on our commitment list. If we could somehow get David Gardner from Okolona to join them, they might give Rebel hoops fans a collective heart attack.
