08:14 AM ET 04.11 | Kentucky's basketball roster will likely soon be dismantled by mass departures for the NBA, leaving the title-winners in a state of flux. Two of the biggest questions will be answered Wednesday night. Nerlens Noel and Shabazz Muhammad -- the top two high school seniors in the country -- will announce their college intentions during a made-for-TV special to coincide with the first day of the spring signing period. Both recruits have UK among their final three schools, and both would be considerable building blocks. ... Most recruiting services have Kentucky one spot behind Arizona in the race for the top class in the country.

The quick NBA route is through Kentucky. They'll get 'em.

And they call, what goes on at Kentucky, college basketball ? I don't think so !

Don't worry, I'm sure both playerswill go to Kentucky if they pay them handsomely as they seem to be the NBA's newest addition to the D-League.

Regardless, sooner or later UK will lose their title because everybody knows that Calipari is dirty and eventually the NCAA will find him in violation of something in recruiting these players like he they did at UMass and Memphis. Only question is would they strip UK of this year's title if something was found illegal on this year's team.

Hey! What ever happened to English, History, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Psychology, Sociology, Economics and. . .and. . .and. . .Are we talking academic excellence, good old school days, up the school tie, sportsmanship, win-lose graciously or are we talking contracts, publicity agents. managers, win! win! win! at any cost! And it really doesn't matter where you go so long as you get your tuition paid, live in a dorm free and eat three (or more) squares a day!!! and get selected high in the NBA draft so you can get good signing bonuses. What we have here are 18 yr old pros putting in time in college without ever really getting the message for a year or maybe two. Three years? Four years? Graduate? Not bloody likely.

THIS all died with the one-and-done rule. CBB isn't about the student anymore, just the basketball player.

The best players have to go to school for 1 year, and 1 year only. They don't want to nor need to be students. Don't hate the schools, hate the rules. KY, Texas, Arizona, UCLA....schools that agree to sign the 1-and-done players aren't doing anything wrong.....change the rules, don't bang on schools that play by them

Love how the media is always talking UK and these guys. It is quite possible they whiff on both. Noel is tweeting he's going to shock the world. Him going to UK isn't a shock so he may be leaning Georgetown like a lot are saying. Bazz is a UCLA lean. UK may get Bennett and would then be crucial that they nab UConn xfer, Oriakhi.

The one and doners don't even go for a year more like 7 months and when the basketball season is over they're gone.
