Some kids just get it.
Kyle Cain does.
The south suburban native who recently finished up at New Hampton Prep in New Hampshire and was released from his commitment from Rhode Island, so he's a 'free agent' now...and was contacted by John Calipari at Kentucky.
That had to hook him, right?
Cain told ESPNChicago.com: Any player would be excited that Kentucky would call them. I just know I'm not the type of player that Kentucky goes after.
I'm an emerging player. I can be a star in college in two or three years. Kentucky goes after McDonald's All-Americans every year. I'm a player who works hard for everything. It's not that they don't work hard, but I'm not their type.
Good for him for knowing himself, his game, and what college basketball means to him. I hope he finds success.
