Where in the world is Kentucky head coach John Calipari today?

We have our answer.

According to Corey Evans of Rivals.com, 2020 five-star shooting guard BJ Boston hosted Calipari on an in-home visit in Norcross, GA.

Boston, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard and a consensus top-10 junior, is one of just ten prospects in the class of 2020 with an offer from Kentucky.

Calipari also offered four-star center Cliff Omoruyi while in New Jersey yesterday afternoon.

Outside of UK, the Norcross native also holds scholarships from Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, Auburn, Alabama, Florida, and Memphis, among others.

As of today, Duke holds the lead on his Crystal Ball on 247 Sports with all four picks, including predictions from recruiting insiders Jerry Meyer and Andrew Slater.

247 Sports’ official prospect analysis lists Boston as a “long” athlete with “good athleticism and a natural feel for the game.”

“A long athlete who is still growing,” the analysis says. “Has good athleticism and a natural feel for the game. Lack of strength needs to improve, especially to be effective long term on the defensive end. Terrific scorer who is effective at all three levels. Has a nose for the ball and the length to be a dangerous rebounder. Has tremendous upside, which makes him a potential lottery pick.”

Here are just a few of Boston’s most recent highlights:

    Hate to say it, but Duke bound if they really want him.

      Don’t make me send a request to the man in the little red suit just to get him. Remember YES VIRGINIA THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS

      So what? K can’t get past the elite 8 with three of the best in the country with one of them being a “generational talent”. They regressed as the season progressed.

      And Cal has only 1 title while proudly yelling how he has 1000 NBA players. Plus Cal has that impressive 1st round NIT loss. Plus Cal has had wins vacated at both schools he has left. K, Cal, Izzo, Bennett, Rupp, Dean Smith etc, none will win a title when they have to rely on only FR. And K beat Cal by 34 with a far less experienced team. And by regressed you mean they barely lost to a team that many considered a 1 seed. While Cal lost to an 7-8 seed prior to SEC run, then a 5 seeded full strength team that almost lost in 1st round to a 12 seed {would have lost if kid makes ft} and to a team that just lost one of its top players and had 1 day to prepare for our game without him.

      You really are a special …special kind of stupid aren’t ya son????

    5. BigJohnC

      What’s your point?

    6. nocode96

      Oh mashburnfan, you consistently meet my expectations.

    7. 4everUKblue

      Tell me again what a great program and coach dUKe h as mashbumKfanboy. He should have lost to UCF, Zion should have been called for his 5th and 6th fouls on that on play. Go back and look at how K’s teams have done the last 4 yrs, who they lost to and when. By regressed I mean UCF got royally screwed, by regressed I mean they got worse as the season progressed and everyone but you noticed it. As far as the vacated wins, Cal has never been directly linked in either instance. As far as your opinion…you’re an idiot of epic proportions.

    8. 4everUKblue

      Turns out the refs couldn’t save dUKe from MSU as hard as they tried. You’re a dUKe fan not a UK fan so what the fuk are doing on this site? Read this, I hope it makes your head explode.

    9. mashburnfan1

      Either of you tell me what is not right in the comment, all are facts. And the article says what I have said and Cal has proven his 1st 6 years here{when he was getting the very top HS players}, no coach will win a title if they have to rely on FR. K has had the same success rate as Cal {1 title each} with that, except he did not lose in NIT 1st round. Many believed MSU should have been a 1 seed, regardless they were a tough and experienced team. Auburn was a streak missing one of their best players with no time to adjust to that. No sense in arguing with you, I can’t fix stupid. K beat Cal by 34 with a far less experienced team. And team by team we probably have more players on our team that will play in the NBA than dUKe does this year. They have 4, maybe 5, and we have like 6 or more. You want current and head to head, that was this season.

    10. catsarerunnin

      I’ll tell you what’s not right. You’re not a fan and you’re a dbag. Case closed.

    11. Carcrook

      Dude, Auburn was playing as a unit! They got hot afree the UK lose in Feb. Say, what you want about Cal and all his failures, but my one question to you is what have you done in your life?

  2. Truth_Hurts

    To be honest not real impressed. I’d like to see how he plays defense but not much ever in highlights.

  3. shelby

    How the hell s duke ALWAYS the favorite for EVERYONE??

    1. 4everUKblue

      They use the duffel bag drop technique.

    2. mashburnfan1

      Ever been to Cameron, ever been to Rupp? Not even close in atmosphere despite the much larger crowd we can hold. Plus K vs Cal 5>1 and a 34 point beating with a far less experienced team. While I think Cam Reddish is way overrated if you watched dUKe and their FR play this year and watched UK and our FR where would you want to go?

    3. 4everUKblue

      Hands down Kentucky you fuking idiot. I’ve been to Rupp many times and I would never let my son play for K.

    4. mashburnfan1

      4ever stupid at it again. You think Rupp is a better place for an 18 year old to see a game then Cameron. Well I’ve been to games at both {although just 1 at Cameron} and Cameron Indoor is much more of a fun environment than Rupp. Fans, especially students, seem to be on top of the court and loud. Place is rocking the entire game, not the snooze fest of Rupp arena with the crowd leaving with 10 to go or at half. UK would be better served to put students on entire side, baseline to baseline, across from the benches. Not sure we could get enough students to go to fill that many seats though.

      Man you really are a Duke fan ain’t you… I mean I don’t ever join in on any of your guys arguments or anything on this site… I just like to read comments and laugh… But it is ok to be a dUKe fan but you only get on here to down Kentucky and Cal… At least look at both sides of the argument and just admit you are a dUKe fan… It is ok you just cheer for them and most of us cheer for Kentucky on this site

    6. RAGE

      I will add this though to the argument… When Cal has his generational talent he won it all in Anthony Davis!!! Six years later when Coach K had one in Zion he didn’t.. And honestly tell me who had the second best player??? We had MKG and Duke had R.J. Barrett… R.J. is a better player at this age than MKG…. Also there has only one time a team has had the top 2 players in the draft and it was when we won it all in 2012… DUKe could quite possibly have the top 2 picks this year if not then 2 out of the top 3 picks and he failed to make a final 4… No body has had the talent dUKe has the last 3 seasons and they have exactly 0 final fours to show for it!!!! just saying plus I have never heard any coach make more excuses than Coach K this season every time they lost a game… Both ESPN and Coach K just continuously made excuses about every thing… Heck at one point he was even mad about the referees and everybody knows dUKe gets every whistle

    7. Urincatland

      Mash, then pack your sh!t and move to Durham?!?!

    8. KatFan48

      Poor mashBUMfan. Bigolblue aka lilolchicken must be out of action or he could help with the singing of their anthem THE SKY IS FALLING. THE SKY IS FALLING

  4. Catcasey1

    Just wait till sht hits the fan with Zion and many more there MASH potatoes.

  5. VirginiaCat

    Cal is still a good recruiter, he just can’t get the top talent as he once did. I think the upset USA loss to Canada hurt and has been used against him.

  6. bigbluebreeze

    He crushed it against Roselle Catholic that had Cliff and Kahlil.

    1. bigbluebreeze

      Or has

  7. lexslamman

    All Duke does is waste good talent in a broken, outdated system. This year was the proof – 3 or 4 of the best players in the country healthy at the same time and the coaches couldn’t make it work. Players looked worse as the year went on.

  8. Robinson73

    Coach K the greatest coach of all time, RJ Barrett took the last 3 shots against the Zags guess what they lost he took the last 3 shots against MState they lost are seeing a trend her? It’s easy too see who should have taken the last shot in those games.

  9. catsarerunnin

    Why isn’t doucheburn a puke fan since he admires them so much??

  10. StuckinLville

    People saying he’s a lock to Duke forget that Stewart, Bryant, and James were all said to be locks to Duke…that didn’t happen.
