Richardson (Texas) combo guard Cason Wallace, a consensus top 15 prospect in the 2022 class, ended his recruitment Sunday night, picking Kentucky over Tennessee, UTSA and Texas. Wallace wrote an exclusive blog with Sports Illustrated breaking down his thought process behind his decision.
Hey everybody it’s Cason Wallace and I’m excited right now because not only is it my 18th birthday but I also just committed to Kentucky!
I chose Kentucky for a lot of different reasons; I built a close relationship with Coach Jai Lucas; he’d been recruiting me for a while. When I went there, I loved everything about the vibe, and I knew that everybody really wanted me to be there.
I remember the exact moment that I knew that it was Kentucky; I was sitting down talking to my parents going over pros and cons and it just became more and more obvious that Kentucky was the clear choice.
