Kentucky head coach John Calipari will be in to see his top guard target in the class of 2020.
Sources told KSR this morning that Calipari will visit 2020 No. 2 prospect Cade Cunningham today, with the 6-foot-7, 215-pound confirming the news to KSR not long after.
Cunningham, the consensus No. 2 prospect in the nation and top overall guard, is scheduled to take his official visit to Lexington this weekend for Big Blue Madness.
This morning in my Pilgrim’s Insider Notes post, I wrote that immediately following 2021 five-star guard Devin Askew’s official visit this past weekend, the UK coaching staff turned its attention to preparing for Cunningham’s upcoming trip to Lexington.
Sources tell KSR that Kentucky is recruiting both Cunningham and Askew for the class of 2020, and there is a puncher’s chance of that scenario coming to fruition. I am told that as soon as Askew’s official visit wrapped up in Lexington, the staff’s recruiting focus shifted entirely to Cunningham’s official visit scheduled for this weekend.
“Next week is the big one,” one source close to the situation told KSR. “[They are] not playing around, going for the kill.”
Cunningham has taken three official visits thus far to Oklahoma State, North Carolina, and Florida, with a trip to Washington also scheduled for Oct. 18 after the five-star guard wraps up his visit to Lexington.
Oklahoma State has long been seen as the runaway favorite to land the Arlington, TX native, though North Carolina and Kentucky have picked up serious momentum in recent weeks.
