Not long after point guard Tyrese Maxey committed to Kentucky on Wednesday, he revealed in a USA Today blog that he actually committed to John Calipari three weeks earlier.
His initial commitment to Kentucky did not go over too smoothly. The first time he tried to call Calipari, the coach was asleep. How late did he try to call Coach Cal? That’s what Curtis Burch asked at the Nike EYBL in Atlanta.
“It was around 9:30,” Maxey said. “You know he’s old, so he goes to sleep early.”

This confirms what many expected: Coach Cal is not a night owl.
After posting 27-6-6 in a one-point Friday night win, Maxey’s team lost by six in their first game of the day. Stay tuned for more updates from all of UK’s targets.
