You really think he is going to go to State if he doesn't go to UK? I know you are one of the few who have followed his recruitment on this board, so don't feel like I am attacking you, but I just don't see State being in the picture.
When he finally cuts his list to 2-4 schools i believe it will be between, Duke, Kentucky, Miami and then maybe Florida or State, but those are two long shots IMO.
As for Bledsoe, everyone I talk to and read from doesn't think him going to UK will make a difference either way for Wall.
As for the citation. It is the equvilant of a traffic ticket. It was stupid to be there, but it doesnt even make the news if it is 6 months ago. I think it will have no effect on the schools already recruiting him. This pales in comparison to what Ty did last year or what Aminu did last year or what JJ did when he left Duke a couple years ago.
I think he will be a State lean if Bledsoe commits because of information I got about a week and a half ago. This is the same guy that told me Wall got arrested about an hour after it happened. I am not saying it to be a ridiculous fan or anything like that. It is known in Raleigh that his mom really favors NC State, both of his coaches gets along with Sid Lowe, and we have been involved with him the longest. After he cancelled his visit to Duke I didn't think it would bode well for Duke and I still don't.
Florida is a very long shot and I don't see anyway that he goes to a UM team that would arguably be a worse team after losing Jack McClinton. He would be 12 hours from his mom and playing on a team that is less competitive than NC State..which makes zero sense.
As for the UK fans that think it won't affect Wall if Bledsoe goes there?? All I have to say is that Bledsoe wouldn't commit there if HE thought Wall was going there. Which means that if Bledsoe commits then that means he has heard from inside of UK that Wall is a longshot at best.
As I said..I thought all along if he didn't go to Baylor to follow Dwon Clifton then he would go to NC State. I don't think that his lifestyle fits with Duke, Kentucky is too far away from everything and if Bledsoe goes there then I don't think Wall does, and we have been recruiting him the longest.
Its just a hunch on my part but the guy that I talk to is relatively well connected and the fact that citation situation played out exactly as he said it would gives me confidence. So when he said that as of 2 weeks ago Wall was deciding between NC State and Kentucky I believe him...
But this kid also changes with the wind so anything is possible. JMO.
