Following a day where many were reporting that Jodie Meeks had failed to receive a first round guarantee, news is now flowing that Jodie Meeks will be returning for his senior season to The University of Kentucky.
According to a report on The Dave and Scott Show, Scott Padgett's former get-up, sources are confirming that Jodie plan's to make his return back to school. Jodie's intentions have been clear from the beginning and he wanted to remain in the NBA draft if given a legitimate guarantee of first round dollars or early second round possibilities, but it appears he may fall short in that scenario.
If the report holds true, this is great news for Coach Calipari and The Wildcats of Kentucky, because they will return Jodie, along with his scoring and leadership, to an already potent, but young line-up. With the return of Meeks, the Cats will be sitting firmly in most pre-season top 5's and considered an early final four favorite.
Quite a turnaround from the mediocre label the program had been engulfed with over the past 4-5 years.
