Multiple sources are citing school sources that have been involved with Birmingham, Alabama Parker High School's Eric Bledsoe that they have been informed that Bledsoe has chosen to attend the University of Kentucky.
Bledsoe led Parker to the 5A Alabama championship, over future Kentucky teammate DeMarcus Cousins, of LeFlore HS.
Bledsoe comes to Kentucky a quick riser, having jumped up the recruiting ranks significantly as a senior, and now finds himself ranked as the #6 point guard in Scout.com's final rankings. Bledsoe, a four star recruit, joins five star big men Cousins and Daniel Orton, rated by Scout as the #2 and #4 centers in the class respectively; four star wing Jon Hood, Scout's #10 WF; and three star small forward Darnell Dodson in the class of 2009, who will have three years of eligibility remaining after redshirting his first season at Miami-Dade.
Reports indicate John Wall, the #1 PG in the land, remains a target of Kentucky coach John Calipari.
Bledsoe averaged nearly a triple double last season, tossing in 20.3 points per game, grabbing 9.4 rebounds and dishing out an amazing 11.5 assists per game.
