Here’s an update on Quade Green, the point guard from Philly.

He’s expected at Kentucky’s Big Blue Madness soon (October 14th) but is generally seen as a Syracuse lean. As a matter of fact, he’ll be there this weekend with big-time recruit Hamidou Diallo.

The Crystal Ball sees Syracuse having a 74% chance and Duke at 16%. Kentucky is “aggressive” according to Zags, but the Crystal Ball doesn't have Kentucky listed as a serious option.

Then again, as with all recruiting, most of us don’t know a thing. We remember one case, years ago, about a kid who was set to attend a particular school and changed his mind quite late. When the coach asked why, he hemmed and hawed a bit then explained that he wouldn’t be able to wear his number since it had already been retired.

You just never know.
