Calipari is on the recruiting trail today


private-jet

John Calipari has no time to sit around sipping the victory champagne after his team closed out the home schedule with a tough win over Vanderbilt last night.

No, John Calipari took to the skies this afternoon on a recruiting trip to Lakeland, Florida, where he will watch one of his two remaining targets in the 2017 recruiting class, in Florida’s Class 5A state semifinals.

Kevin Knox, the five-star wing and missing piece to next year’s offense, has a 4 pm game and Calipari is expect to be on hand, along with North Carolina’s Roy Williams and members of Florida State’s coaching staff.

There are no days off in the pursuit of Knox, who has said he will announce his decision sometime between April 1 and April 15.

    Anybody know why we are recruiting another front court player? Especially with the expectation of Mo Bamba coming in? We need guards and are only losing (probably) two forwards, Bam and Willis.

    1. Not Dan Issel

      I suspect Cal feels pretty good about the three guards we have coming in next year, plus from what I have read, Vanderbilt could fill in at the two spot if necessary.

      Plus, don’t forget that Brad will be back next year.

      Knox isn’t a front court player, he’s a wing.

      It’s called positionless basketball. Cal has been preaching it for awhile now.

    Go cats

    You don’t sleep on a talent like Knox. We need bodies next year and Cal thinks he has a good shot at landing a top 10 player.

    I have a feeling we may run out of scholarships. Briscoe is not going pro. Bam stock isn’t very high (which I think it will fix itself)

      Briscoe is gone, period, end of story.

    3. CATandMONKEY

      I have a feeling the coaches can count.

    4. StuckinLville

      Briscoe will not be back. Just as the Harrisons did not come back. Just like them, he’s not going to do himself any favors sticking around. As for Bam, if he has a good tournament he won’t be back, he won’t be anyway. They have plenty of room for all the new guys and Knox and Bamba.
