Kentucky point guard target TyTy Washington couldn’t sleep last night. “I wonder why,” he tweeted.

Projected as a Kentucky signee when the signing comes, Washington has plans to announce his final decision this coming Saturday, May 15. The belief around Lexington is that it’s already a done deal behind the scenes and only the public announcement stands in the way of Washington becoming Calipari’s next freshman point guard. With the cat already out of the bag, maybe he’ll make a surprise announcement ahead of schedule?
Sports Illustrated’s Director of Basketball Recruiting, Jason Jordan, teased more big news to come today in addition to the Patrick Baldwin commitment earlier this morning. Could it be a Washington surprise commitment, maybe? We’ll be on standby just in case regardless.
Patrick Baldwin’s announcement tomorrow isn’t the only big news coming.

In the meantime, fans of other programs on Washington’s list of finalists are still trying to lure him away from Lexington.
One Kansas fan replied, “Cause you can’t believe you’re going to commit to a school that just went 9-16 with a top ranked recruiting class and you already have regret.” Another Kansas fan responded, “Well you wont get to enjoy the tournament but goood luck at UK.”
Arizona fans are mad online too. One Arizona fan tweeted, “Just want to be 100 with u look at devin askew top pg in his class chose kentucky and John Calipari destroyed him killed his confidence to the point were he wanted to transfer don’t make the same mistake u are a very intelligent young man may God bless u amd your family”
They mad and soon it will be made official, maybe sooner than Washington originally had in mind.
