Coach John Calipari posted this morning on Twitter that he was excited for Meeks and wished he had the chance to coach him. The school also released a statement.
The decision is one of few setbacks in Caliparis efforts to amass a star-studded roster. He has landed some of the nations top recruits, and center Patrick Patterson decided not to go pro.
Meeks provided one of the few highlights for a lackluster Kentucky season when he scored a team-record 54 points against Tennessee. The guard from Norcross, Ga., had one season of eligibility remaining.
