John Wall Down To 2 (Or 3) Schools

John Wall is doing his best Terrelle Pryor at the moment, really dragging this thing out when it comes to picking a school. There's been no shortage of pieces written about Wall of late -- both about that B&E charge and about his recruitment. ↵

↵Today, it looks like we're closer to an end to this national nightmare. ↵

↵Wall is reportedly down to two schools -- Kentucky and Miami -- according to ZAGSBLOG: ↵

↵⇥"It's down to the two of them, no question about it," one source said. "It is Kentucky and Miami. The kid is leaning toward Kentucky. There is a little bit of a concern with the people closest to him that if he goes to Kentucky that they're going to lose control." ↵
↵

↵SI.com reports Duke remains in the mix, but either way, we're significantly down from that previous figure of seven schools. ↵

↵

↵In one corner, you could view Wall as the last piece to an instant Final Four contender at Kentucky. In the other corner, you've got a Miami that showed a lot of potential with some athletic bigs and Jack McClinton next season. McClinton will be gone, so there will be shots to be had. ↵

↵

↵The sports anarchist in me still wishes Wall would toss his name into the NBA draft and completely mess up this dynamic everyone seems to be settling into where the top three is almost locked up as Griffin-Rubio-Thabeet. Yawn. I demand chaos! ↵
