Now lets say Wall goes to Kentucky. Bledsoe's top choices after UK are Alabama and Florida (Doubt UC factors much into the equation). We get Wall for one year, he departs, and we are likely facing Bledsoe as much as three times a year.
I'm sure you can see my point with Robbie Hummel.
You just have to hope Cal can keep the revolving door continuing at PG, whether its Brandon Knight, Tony Wroten, Joe Jackson, or whoever.
After doing some cursory research, I'm not worried about missing out on Bledsoe at all. First of all, he's six feet tall. Cal likes BIG guards.
Secondly, I'd take Nolan Dennis all day every day over Bledsoe. Dennis is MUCH taller (6'5") and is a combo guard who can do it all.
I would say that Bledsoe is a player that Cal looks at only as a back-up plan. He would also almost certainly recruit over him with a bigger guard who is just as--if not more--talented by his second year.
