Basketball: Does Calipari announcement influence would-be UW recruit Terrence Jones?

Coach John Calipari said today he will be at Kentucky next year, rather than bolt for the NBA and a possible assignment coaching LeBron James. OK, maybe. Why does this matter, assuming you buy it?  Elite-level prep recruit Terrence Jones of Portland, Ore., committed to Washingon two weeks ago, but still has not signed. What’s’ he waiting for? The other school he’s considering is Kentucky. If he’s convinced Coach Cal is staying put, perhaps the Cats become a more attractive option.
