I would think his options for playing time might be greater at UK than at Duke. If UK's top 6 all leave as has been discussed, UK would return Kyle Wiltjer as their only player who has played more than 3 minutes per game. They currently have Goodwin (SG), Poythress (SF/PF), Cauley (C) committed, with offers out to Noel (C), Muhammad (SF), Bennett (PF), Parker (C), Pollard (SF), with Harrow (PG) joining them next year. If I am not missing anyone, Jefferson may be able to get plenty of minutes and would not have any upperclassmen to compete with.

If there are other criteria, then by all means, choose Duke.
