If the kid's interested in education to the point where he'd spend an extra year doing something he's not being paid for, I'm guessing he wouldn't have chosen Kentucky to do it.
If his goal is to receive a good education while playing for the coach who will get him best prepared to play point guard in the NBA, then UK was probably his best choice.
