I am puzzled about why the Herald-Leader never produces an article updating us on the recruiting efforts of the University of Kentucky women’s basketball program, like it does on a regular basis for the men’s program.
Who are Coach Matthew Mitchell’s Top 10 targets? From high school players or overseas potential recruits? On which recruits do the recruiting services feel UK is in the lead? How many of our targets have had campus visits or in-home visits by our coaches? Is there enough excitement in our current recruiting that the fan base can in turn become excited?
We know virtually nothing. I rarely, if ever, see a single article to bring us up to speed. Yet we know all these answers on recruiting for the men’s program.
I would be asking these same questions if we were undefeated instead of where we stand now.
