Monta Ellis, arguably the top junior guard in the nation, has verbally committed to Mississippi State and will sign in November.

Better than Louis Williams? :confused:

I'd say yes. He's better than Louis Williams

This guy dropped 41 points on Josh Smith's head when Lanier played Oak Hill Academy earlier in the year.

IMO, he's the best player in the state right now, and that includes Al Jefferson.

Watch it. When you get commitments from players so early before they go to college, they have a lot of time to re-think their decision. That's why if UK ever had or gets a recruit that's a junior right now, I would try and stay cautiously excited, as UKBlue put it. It happened with Joe Crawford. He commited to Michigan as a junior, changed his mind, and is now Kentucky bound.

Oh well. This doesn't happen often, but great pick-up. You can rest easy when his name is in ink on the LOI. ;)

Monta was sitting right behind the MSU bench last night, anybody see him? And to his left was Charles Rhodes (his senior teammate, a PF signed with MSU) and Charlie White (PG, MSU commitment).

By the way, who's that in your avatar, UKfan4Life? Couldn't help but ask. :)
