UK Signs 6-9 Forward

Most people were expecting UK recruit Josh Harrellson to make a decision between Kentucky and St. Louis on Wednesday. He didn't see any reason to wait that long. Harrellson signed a letter of intent to bring his game to UK on Tuesday.

Harrellson is 6 foot 9, 260 pounds. He should give Patrick Patterson some help down low. He comes to UK from Southwestern Illinois College. He'll have 3 years of eligibility left. Harrellson averaged 14 points and 7.5 rebounds a game last season.

    Okay, I am a huge UK fan, but, Pitino "will" bring Louisville the same success he brought us. It's innevitable, he's one of the best coaches in college basketball.

    Josh Harrellson will be no bench warmer. He will play right away. The kid can score inside or outside and can rebound. In other words, Ramon Harris' playing time just went downhill. GO CATS!!!!!!
