John Calipari has been on a recruiting tear over the last week, picking up commitments from five-star prospects EJ Montgomery and Ashton Hagans.
He also fit in visits with top-rated juniors Keion Brooks and Matthew Hurt. And then set up visits with Vernon Carey and Tyrese Maxey.
And guess what? That grind isn’t stopping anytime soon.
According to recruiting insider Pat Lawless, Coach Cal will be in Memphis for an in-home visit with James Wiseman on April 16.
James Wiseman, a class of 2019 Big Man playing for the Bluff City Legends (TN), will have an in-home visit with Kentucky HC John Calipari on April 16th.

There have been rumors that Wiseman will indeed stick in the class of 2019, and he has regularly told reporters that he plans on playing another season at Memphis East High School.
Still, though, Calipari is going to continue to push for a reclassification to 2018 and commitment to Kentucky. At the very least, there are rumors Coach Cal has talked to Wiseman about transferring to another prep school, with Findlay Prep being the most discussed option.
I don’t care what year he’s a Wildcat, he just needs to end up in the right shade of blue and white when it’s all said and done. Get him away from Penny Hardaway and Memphis.
