Bol Bol is one of the most recent 2018 players to get an offer from John Calipari thanks to an incredible spring on the EYBL circuit. The 7’2″ son of late NBA great Manute Bol is averaging 25.4 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 4.1 blocks for California Supreme, which was enough for Calipari to extend a scholarship offer back on May 1. Bol told Rivals’ Eric Bossi that he was so stunned by the offer he thought it was a joke at first.
“At first I didn’t believe it and I thought it was a joke,” said Bol of the Kentucky offer. “It was kind of cool. They are always good every year and always have good players. Everybody that goes there goes to the NBA.”
Also helping UK’s case with Bol: De’Aaron Fox, who hung out with the 7-footer a few weeks back in California. Both Fox and Bol posted this picture of themselves with Arizona commit Shareef O’Neal last week:
I’m cool with this future. While we’re looking at Bol’s Instagram, LOOK AT HOW TALL HE IS:
My goodness. Can you imagine a frontcourt of him and Marvin Bagley? Because I am and it’s really fun. Enjoy footage of Bol dropping 35 points in front of Calipari below.
