Leave it to KY to create a rumor

Funny, I tend to keep up with this stuff, and never saw this one. Evidently some recent rumors of Gani Lawal waivering on his commit to GT were not true. Duh.

There had been speculation that Gani Lawal, a 6-8 forward and top 25 prospect, was wavering on his commitment to Georgia Tech. Supposedly Lawal, who played with UK freshman Jodie Meeks at Norcross (Ga.) High last season, might be entertaining the idea of re-joining his former teammate at UK in 2007-08.

Not true.

The player and his mother, Michelle Lawal, attended last weekend's Notre Dame-Georgia Tech game as guests of Tech basketball coach Paul Hewitt.
