Iverson’s Cousin Trashes UK’s Recruits
June 4th, 2013| by Lost Lettermen
Count Allen Iverson’s cousin Kuran — a Memphis-bound small forward — among those who don’t buy the hype surrounding Kentucky’s ballyhooed Class of 2013 recruiting haul.
“Everybody talking about Kentucky hype, but there ain’t really gonna be no Kentucky hype,” Iverson told ZagsBlog.com. “There’s gonna be some Memphis hype.”
Iverson also implied in the same interview that the Wildcats’ recruits would be overly reliant on talent, while the baby Tigers would work to be great.
Clearly some of the bravado of his famous cousin has rubbed off on Kuran Iverson — which, if you’re Memphis head coach Josh Pastner, you want in spades from your recruits.
And with the third-best recruiting class in the country, according to Rivals, Iverson has reason to be confident.
