UK basketball coach Billy Gillispie recently offered an eighth-grade kid a scholarship to play for the Wildcats. And he accepted.
But such an agreement doesn't really mean anything when the kid or the coach can - and will - back out three or four years down the line if things don't unfold they way they planned.
I know this is the current trend. But I wish a school with the tradition of Kentucky would lead us in a more sensible direction instead of just following the crowd.
