Where in the world is John Calipari tonight? Rochester, Minnesota, where he’s watching five-star power forward Matthew Hurt, according to Jake Weingarten.
It’s been a big week for Hurt, who scored 55 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in John Marshall’s win on Friday night. On Saturday, he traveled to North Carolina for an official visit. Hurt, who was on Kentucky’s campus three weeks ago, also plans to visit Duke and Kansas before making a decision this spring.
In other recruiting news, Tony Barbee is in Florida for the City of Palms Classic. Among the prospects he’s watching is 2020 star Scottie Barnes, who put up a triple double. Barnes is teammates with Duke signee Vernon Carey. Let’s hope Carey doesn’t sway him to the dark side.
Sadly, I can’t find highlights of Hurt’s 55-point performance, so enjoy him scoring 42 earlier this month:
