    8th Grader commits to Wildcats

    http://rivalshoops.rivals.com/content.asp?SID=910&CID=803673


    To hear Howard Avery describe it, Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie knew nothing of his son when their paths happened to cross at a recent AAU basketball event.

    As fate would have it, though, that chance encounter led to a scholarship offer from the Wildcats and perhaps the earliest verbal commitment in the history of college basketball's winningest program.

    What a ridiculous story ... when the kid is done with high school ... Gillespie will not even be the coach at Kentucky.

    The thing is they are verbal committments....they cant sign for a couple of more years.

    Anything can change in that time.
