5-star Kentucky recruit Isaiah Briscoe claims he picked UK because Derrick Rose went there

We know what he MEANT, but ...

During the McDonald's All-American Game, somebody asked 5-star point guard Isaiah Briscoe why he picked Kentucky. He discussed John Calipari's pedigree with point guards. But he kinda messed up a bit ...

"Growing up watching Kentucky, seeing what he did at Memphis with Tyreke Evans, at Kentucky with Derrick Rose..."

Clearly he knows Calipari was responsible for coaching Derrick Rose, the question was about Calipari, maybe he just misspoke -- but he did specify Evans went to Memphis and Rose went to Kentucky. Which, you know, isn't true.

That said, Rose spent one year at Memphis when Briscoe was 11. So, pretty understandable.
