Eric Bledsoe Picks Kentucky Over Memphis


At a press conference in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, top point-guard recruit Eric Bledsoe said he would attend the University of Kentucky next season.

The news didn't come as a surprise to the Memphis coaching, but it was disappointing nonetheless.

The 6-1 Bledsoe was the third-ranked point guard in the 2009 class, according to Bledsoe will join DeMarcus Cousins, Daniel Orton, Jon Hood, and Darnell Dodson in Calipari's first Kentucky recruiting class. The Wildcats also remain involved with the nation's top-ranked guard, John Wall.
