While in town to see Stanley Johnson, John Calipari apparently offered his Mater Dei teammate Michael Cage, Jr. a scholarship. Cage is a 2016 power forward and the son of former NBA center Michael Cage, who played for Calipari when he coached the New Jersey Nets. The elder Cage tweeted the news yesterday:
Shout out to Coach Cal and Kentucky basketball offering MJ Cage today thanks for recognizing the skills and potential he will keep working!
