  • Apparently, ESPN Has Michael Porter Jr. Going to Kentucky

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Kentucky had four recruits in the Nike Hoop Summit on Friday, but Michael Porter Jr. wasn’t one of them.

    But don’t tell that to ESPN, which posted a graphic depicting the 6-foot-10 Porter Jr. as a Kentucky commit. Porter Jr. is actually going to Missouri to play for new coach Cuonzo Martin and on a staff that includes his father, Michael Porter Sr.

    As I wrote in this column, Porter Jr. — who won MVP honors at the McDonald’s All-American Game — is a future NBA superstar who would be in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick in this draft were he eligible.

    The picture then caused a stir on social media, with some pretty funny responses.
