More on Mackey…

As we told you last week, Indiana received its first commitment for the class of 2008 when Kentucky guard Bud Mackey told coach Kelvin Sampson and his staff that he would play for the Hoosiers.

Mackey held a press conference Monday at Scott County High School near Lexington. We didn’t make the trip to cover it because we had stories about Mackey in print, on the web and here at Hoosier Scoop last week.

From the looks of it, few other major publications took the time to cover the press conference. It was merely a formality during which Mackey said many of the things he said to us and other reporters last week when his commitment first broke.
