Stacey Poole (6-5 190) of Jacksonville FL will play for coach John Calipari at Kentucky. Poole’s decision was down to USC or Kentucky, and he announced his decision this afternoon live on TV.
Although his parents wanted him to stay closer to home, Poole was swayed by the record and experience of Kentucky’s coaching staff. “Coach Calipari has history…I just feel he’s going to put me in the best situation possible.”
Poole was also interested in Clemson, but they didn’t figure into his final two schools.
