What will Kerry Blackshear Jr. do and when is he going to do it? Those were the questions that Kentucky fans kept asking the last few weeks.
The nation’s best graduate transfer really gave no one any clear indication where he might go next year after pulling his name out of the NBA draft — or if he might even return to Virginia Tech.
At one point Kentucky seemed to be in great position to land Blackshear who would give UK a needed inside presence. However, when both Nick Richards and EJ Montgomery decided to return to Kentucky, I began to wonder.
Wednesday it became official when Blackshear gave his commitment to Florida. Not Tennessee as many had seemed to expect in recent days. Or not Virginia Tech as some had started to speculate also that he might do.
While I am surprised he picked Florida, you can’t be surprised that he didn’t pick the Cats after he failed to do so during his recent official visit.
