Poole Makes It Official

Stacey Poole whittled his list of schools down to a pair following his last official visit. Now he's made his college decision.

John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats now have their first recruit in the 2010 class.

After a few days of rumors and information floating around Stacey Poole's recruitment, the Jacksonville (Fla.) Andrew Jackson standout made his college decision official on national television.

"This decision was very hard and it came down to the wire," Poole said. "Me and my dad were up last night talking about everything and I made my decision and I'm playing for the University of Kentucky."

"Coach Calipari has history," he added. "He wins and he enjoys what he does and I feel that he'll put me in the best situation possible. If I got there and play anything can happen."

Poole is ranked No. 58 overall by Scout.com, and checks in at No. 11 on the small forward list.
