It won’t be just John Calipari checking in with five-star 2019 guard Tyrese Maxey. Corey Evans of Rivals.com is reporting the Maxey family will host three other schools this weekend.
What’s also interesting is how Calipari will return to visit Maxey after checking out the 6-foot-4, 185-pound Garland, Texas native. UK was in just last night to see him. That’s when Maxey told SEC Country’s Kyle Tucker that UK is looking to add him for next season and he was open to reclassifying.
“Me and Coach Cal have talked about [reclassifying] multiple times,” Maxey told Tucker. “He’s just saying it would be a great opportunity for me to be a part of this special team that he’s building for next season.”
Remember, Maxey’s father is on staff at SMU. It appears the Mustangs may not be the threat many assumed early in the process.
One thing to keep an eye on is now that Maxey has said publicly he’s open to reclassifying, you better believe Texas, Michigan and MSU will also push to add the the Brandon Knight like guard to their rosters for next season, too.
Calipari is also planning on seeing Scottie Lewis, Bryan Antoine and Vernon Carey. Sounds like Calipari is with #TeamNoSleep.
Five-star junior Tyrese Maxey will host Kentucky’s John Calipari, Texas’ Shaka Smart, Michigan’s John Beilein & Michigan State’s Tom Izzo this weekend for in-home visits, a source tells @Rivals@RowlandRIVALS @DMcComasOB @Balas_Wolverine https://t.co/RXZ5HrdDcl
