The chances of Beas Hamga playing in The Pit are looking bleak, some say.
The 7-footer out of Decatur (Ill.) Christian School will likely play for Kentucky instead of New Mexico, said Lobo signee Darrington Hobson, former teammates with Hamga at Decatur.
Decatur coach Alan Huss said Tuesday that Hamga will visit New Mexico in a couple of weeks, as well as Kentucky and UNLV this weekend. The Cameroon native is the fourth-best center in the class of 2008, according to Rivals.com. Recent reports stated Hamga would try to qualify for the class of 2007, which Huss says is a possibility.
Hamga was a former Iowa commitment who considered following Steve Alford to New Mexico, but Kentucky's hard to pass up. Look for the Lobos to keep pounding the recruiting trail and making calls and sending text messages (oh wait, that's a no-no now) in search of big men.
Assistant coach Craig Neal is currently in North Carolina meeting with 6-10 center Monquel Pegues out of Cape Fear Community College. If that deal happens, expect it quickly.
