Kentucky May Land 2010 Big Man Enes Kanter


I have heard from several good sources this morning that Enes Kanter may be close to giving Kentucky a commitment.

Kanter made a visit to Kentucky over the weekend for the Florida game and the initial word was that he loved everything about the visit.

This morning it seems as if a commitment may be coming soon.

Kanter is a 6-9 center that is rated as a 5-star recruit by Rivals.com. One recruiting analyst describes him as "a multi-talented big man that has a bright NBA future."

Another recruiting guru adds that Kanter "could potentially be a one and done type player."

If the Cats do land Kanter, he will join Stacey Poole in the 2010 recruiting class.

Kentucky is still listed in the mix for a handful of other talented 2010 recruits including: Terrence Jones, Doron Lamb, Brandon Knight, Josh Selby and Terrence Ross.

Here is some footage of Kanter in action:

Will he compete with Orton for the center position or is he able to slide out and play the 4 spot like Patterson did this year?

I am actually playing catchup on Kanter as he kind of came out of nowhere on the UK scene. I have not watched him in person yet, but from all that I gather he would be an ample backup to Orton at the 5 and a solid 4, as well. He has a nice jumpshot and can shoot from long range with accuracy. I'm looking into him more and will have some reports coming soon.

This is exactly what Kentucky needs next year. With the Cats probably losing PatPat, Cousins, and even Stevenson, our biggest threat - the inside game - will take a big hit. Another big body would do a great deal for reserves and that 4 spot like you mention.
