The Latest On The Delk Twins

The Delk Twins of Jackson (Tenn.) North side, have college recruiters seeing double. Pledged to attend the same college, we talked with shooting guard Reginald to get the latest on their choices.

Reginald Delk and Richard Delk are a pair of 6-foot-4, 180 pounds guards out of Jackson (Tenn.) Northside. The seniors, nephews of former UK standout Tony Delk, have rolled up a few high-major offers after an outstanding spring and early summer campaign with the Mid-State Ballerz.

So far, Tennessee, Mississippi and Mississippi State have offered. Interest in the pair, who has already stated that they'll sign together, has also come from North Carolina State, Florida and Louisville.

Mississippi State is the lone school they've visited unofficially thus far.

Playing time will be an issue for the twins but staying together won't. It's been their goal all along to make the same college choice and they wouldn't have it any other way.

"I don't know how [not playing together] would feel," Reginald said. "We've always been together. I think we got a good feeling together when we're both on the court. We help each other out."

Though twins, and both guards, they are different as players. "My game is more slashing and shooting the ball, more two guard. Richard can run the one and drill the ball, pass the ball and shoot it. He's more of a one and two."

When you see the twins, you can tell there is certain calming presence between the two of them. They feed off each other. When they're in the game together, you can almost sense the comfort level of Reginald in that he's free to go out and score. There's no doubt a degree of chemistry that exists between the pair. Reginald is likely to end up in our Top 100 and Richard isn't far behind.

Right now, there's just no rush to make a decision. "I don't know. There's no timetable. We're not close."
