JEREMY TYLER, CLASS OF 2010, TO LOUISVILLE

Jeremy Tyler, a 6-foot-8, 240-pound power forward from San Diego H.S. in San Diego, California, is rated as the No. 9 player in the class of 2010 and the No. 4 power forward in the class. The five-star junior has apparently picked his new home, and he's headed to Louisville to play his college ball.


Tyler committed to Louisville.

Coach Ken Roy of San Diego H.S. confirmed to Cardinalsports.com Saturday evening that his star player had given a verbal commitment to Louisville.

Tyler made an unofficial visit to UofL in August and came away impressed with what he saw.

"It was amazing," Tyler said after the visit. "I've never seen anything like that. We went to the football game and saw all the fans there and how they treat their players. We talked to the coaches and saw how they treat everybody. It was a good trip."

Being a nationally-ranked recruit on a top-tier AAU program, Tyler had met several of the Louisville stars before.

"Earl (Clark), I know Earl and I'd talked to him before," Tyler said. "I know Terrence Williams and, of course, Samardo (Samuels). Samardo and I have met through AAU ball."

Now Tyler will get a chance to patrol the middle of the paint with Samuels in the future. Cardinalsports.com will have more on this story later this evening.

Tyler chose the Cardinals over offers from UCLA, Arizona, and others.

6-10 Daniel Orton commits to Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The pageantry of the University of Kentucky's Big Blue Madness moved Daniel Orton, and the outpouring of affection from UK fans got his attention.

But Orton, a senior center from Bishop McGuinness High School in Oklahoma City, had made up his mind to attend UK before any of that.

Orton made up his mind on Friday, when Kansas coach Bill Self told him the Jayhawks had wrapped their 2009 recruiting with the commitment of power forward Thomas Robinson.

"Kentucky wasn't a backup plan, but it still made my decision a lot easier for me," Orton said at a news conference today at the Hyatt Regency.

Orton announced his decision at the end of his official recruiting visit to UK. He and his parents spent Friday night at Big Blue Madness, where fans chanted Orton's name. He played pickup games with the current Wildcats on Saturday.

Orton, a 6-foot-10, 260-pound center, is a five-star prospect according to Rivals.com and Scout.com, and both services rank him the No. 3 center prospect in the class of 2009.

Scout ranks Orton the No. 12 player overall in the class of 2009. Rivals ranks him No. 22.

About two dozen UK fans showed up for Orton's announcement, as did several current Cats, including sophomore big man Patrick Patterson, whom Orton said he could complement as a high-post player or replace in the low post if Patterson elects to enter the NBA Draft after this season.

"I really don't know," Orton said when asked if he expected to play with Patterson at UK. "It's his decision, but I would love to."

That's a good look for Kentucky. I want them to get back to being a top 10 team.

He may be full of +**$ but he might not either. Oklahoma got new unis for this season also. I'd be surprised if they do seeing that they debuted the current ones at the 07 BE tourney.

Pac-10 Conference: Top NBA Prospects

By Michael DeStefano

Top 5 Prospects:

UCLA has dominated the Pac-10 for a while now, having been to three consecutive Final Fours. Tim Floyd landed another stud recruiting class as USC looks to take another step forward while Arizona was poised for a return to prominence before Brandon Jennings went abroad. Although not as deep as some of the other conferences in terms of the number of quality players, the Pac-10 is at the top in terms of potential lottery picks and NBA stars.



  1. image

    James Harden

  2. James Harden (Arizona State) - Harden's stellar freshman campaign went largely unnoticed by the rest of the country as he played in the shadow of fellow newcomers Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley, and the Pac-10's own OJ Mayo, Kevin Love, and Jerryd Bayless. Despite the lack of national attention, you can bet that the Pac-10 took notice, with Harden putting up 18 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals per game on 53% shooting (41% from 3.) He's the best shooting guard prospect in the nation, a bit of a throwback in the way he uses fundamentals and intelligence to beat his opponent more often than flash and athleticism. He's great finishing around the basket (he needs to improve his right hand, however). He's a good jump shooter but needs to work on his ability to hit consistently off the dribble. He's a solid defender, but not a standout. One of the youngest players in his class, Harden is still learning and improving. He'll likely be a top five pick in June, and possibly the first shooting guard off the board.

  3. Demar Derozan (USC) - Prediction: He'll be the best NBA player of anyone on this list. Not the #1 prospect because he's yet to prove anything at this level, it's only a matter of time before the world knows Derozan's name. He's drawn comparisons to Vince Carter due to his outstanding athleticism and jump shot. His body is NBA ready, and jumping ability aside, he's also got a quick first step and great body control when finishing at the rim. His handle is good, though his one-on-one defense is still questionable, his athleticism enables him to block shots and jump passing lanes for easy steals. Derozan is a surefire one-and-done. The biggest knock on him is that he sometimes goes through the motions; hence, the Carter comparison - but if he can play inspired basketball for Tim Floyd and sustain a high level of play all season, he could be a top three pick.

  4. Jrue Holiday (UCLA) - Another one of the top freshman in the country, Holiday joins a loaded UCLA backcourt in the hopes of leading them to a fourth consecutive Final Four. Where Derozan's heart has come into question, Holiday's is one of his greatest strengths. He's got a great work ethic and attitude to go along with his talent and versatility. He's athletic (though not on Derozan's level) and exhibits good fundamentals on the court. His jump shot is solid out to the college line, he's got a mid-range game, and he can get to the basket and finish well. A combo guard, Holiday can also run a team and make the players around him better. The combo guard label had been a negative thing in the past, but with the success of players like Dwyane Wade, Monta Ellis, Louis Williams, and Rodney Stuckey, guys who can play at both backcourt positions have become valuable commodities. While Holiday needs to continue to hone his point guard skills, he's the best combo the college ranks has to offer. A one-and-done possibility if he has a great year at UCLA, Holiday is more likely a top five pick in 2010.

  5. Chase Budinger (Arizona) - Chase is back for his junior year at Arizona after passing on two drafts in which he could have been a first-round pick. Last year, he averaged 17 points and 5 rebounds per game. Jerryd Bayless left for the NBA and Brandon Jennings went to Europe, so although the Wildcats might struggle to win games, Chase will have the opportunity to put up big numbers and show he can be the man on this team. He's got size, athleticism, and a strong work ethic to go along with his feathery jump shot. He won't be the biggest name in the 2009 Draft but certainly should be a lottery pick and able to contribute right away in the NBA.

  6. Darren Collison (UCLA) - Collison's stock took a beating last year after getting dominated by Derrick Rose in the Final Four, but he is still a solid point guard who can run a team and play defense. Jrue Holiday and Malcolm Lee will help to relieve some of the pressure on Collison, but if he is not careful, he could be leapfrogged by the two talented freshmen in the UCLA backcourt. He needs to get much stronger to make a significant impact at the next level. It will take a great season, particularly in the tournament, for Collison to improve his stock, though he is still slated as a late first-round pick.

Others receiving consideration: Jordan Hill (Arizona), Jeff Pendergraph (ASU), Quincy Pondexter (Washington), Jon Brockman (Washington), Malcolm Lee (UCLA), Jerime Anderson (UCLA)


Sleeper: Patrick Christopher (California) - The Pac-10 has no newcomers that will take you by surprise; everyone expects great things from the freshman in this conference. But Patrick Christopher is a name that college basketball fans around the country might not know despite the fact that he averaged over 15 points per game last year as a sophomore for the Golden Bears. Ryan Anderson and Devon Hardin are gone, so this is Christopher's team; look for his production to increase significantly. His draft stock is still considerably low seeing as how he is somewhat of an unknown, but a season with solid numbers in the Pac-10 should put him on the map in the eyes of fans and NBA scouts alike. He needs to improve his outside shooting, become more consistent finishing around the basket, and produce better in other areas besides scoring.

The Cincinnati Bearcats went to the east coast for their first verbal commitment of the 2009 class.

Sean Kilpatrick a 6'5 185 lb shooting guard from White Plains, NY visited Cincinnati this weekend and came so impressed with what he saw that he decided to give his verbal commitment to Mick Cronin and his staff shortly after his visit.

Wayne Litmer
"Basically just hanging around the coaches," said Kilpatrick. "Everything about them is real. I love the campus. It is gorgeous. The players made me feel like I was one of their teammates"

The original plan was for Kilpatrick to visit Cincinnati this weekend and then visit Providence in a couple weeks followed by possible visits to Kansas State and Marquette later this fall. However, Kilpatrick did not need to make those visits after visiting Cincinnati.

"It just felt like a family," said Kilpatrick. "I just decided I did not need to see anything else because I knew Cincinnati was where I wanted to be."

Kilpatrick spent Saturday with his new teammates and coaches at both the Rutgers football game and afterward at Fan Jam. Watching his new friends and teammates in action helped him a lot with making his decision to verbally commit to Cincinnati.

"It helped a lot," said Kilpatrick. "It basically let me see what they do. They have a pick and roll offense and the coach just lets you play. I really liked that about Cincinnati."

Before coming in on his visit Kilpatrick did not really know a lot about the players on the roster. However, it did not take him long to make some new friends.

"They treated me like a family, treated me like I was already going to the school. I just love the coaching staff, the players; I especially love the freshmen because they treated me like I was already a freshman."

"I have 3 new buddies in Yancy Gates, Cashmere Wright, and Dion Dixon," stated Kilpatrick."

Kilpatrick said when he spoke to the coaching about what his role will be they simply said they need someone that can flat out put the ball in the basket.

"Coach said he needs someone to come in and flat out score, he said he needs someone to come in after Deonta leaves and put the basket in the bucket.

That is exactly what Kilpatrick did in his last season when he averaged 28.7 points per game.

Kilpatrick is not only a scorer but a good defender as well. He is long for a shooting guard and he uses that length to his advantage on the defensive end.

While hanging out with the players on his visit Kilpatrick said that the one thing that made him say wow was when the players just told him all they are worried about is winning.

And it was there in that moment when the players were talking about winning that he knew he wanted to proudly wear the red and black and become a Bearcat.


Decent pickup. Sounds like we'll be getting a solid 4 year guy that can score a little bit.
