In a report in today's Detroit News guard Alex Legion named four schools he could possibly transfer to. Legion said he was considering Illinois, Michigan, Notre dame and Arkansas.
The statements in the paper marked the first time Legion has spoken publicly since UK announced on December 3 that the freshman wanted to transfer.
Legion said, "Yeah I did decide to transfer, but as far as me coming back, I have no idea how that came out. I nver went to any paper or writer and told them I had any thoughts of coming back.
Legion's mother had been quoted and saying he was having second thoughts and UK Coach Billy Gillispie had said Legion still wants to be on the team. Gillispie said the two would talk.
Legion said Notre Dame is the only school that has offered a scholarship. He said the school requested and received his paperwork from kentucky.
