After posting a video of himself dabbing and saying YOLO, John Calipari hit the road this morning to visit five-star teammates Mohamed Bamba and Cameron Reddish at Westtown High School in Pennsylvania. The 6’11” Bamba is considered one of Kentucky’s top remaining targets in the 2017 class, while Reddish is the top small forward in the 2018 class.

According to Pat Lawless of MADE Hoops, Cal and Tony Barbee will check on Bamba and Reddish before heading to Philadelphia to see 2017 commit Quade Green, who has made it very clear he’s recruiting Bamba to join him in Lexington. Green isn’t alone; all of the members of Kentucky’s 2017 class are after Bamba, including the newest Wildcat, Hamidou Diallo, who called Bamba Kentucky’s “missing piece” in an interview with Evan Daniels released this morning.
“The biggest recruit that we’re trying to get next is Mo Bamba,” Diallo said. “I think that’s the missing piece right there. Once we get him, the sky’s the limit for us.”
