Okafor will visit Kentucky on Sept. 9th

Jahlil Okafor announced on Twitter this afternoon that he will take an official visit to Kentucky the weekend of September 9th. It’s not the weekend of Big Blue Madness, but it could be the next best thing.

The September 9th weekend is the weekend of Kentucky’s alumni basketball game, when several former Wildcats will be in town for the scrimmage, Calipari’s fantasy camp and to do things that NBA players do when they get back together on their old campus. If you recall, Julius Randle took his official visit to Kentucky during the same weekend last fall, and we all know how that turned out. I’ve been told that weekend is when Randle decided he would eventually become a Wildcat.

Now, Okafor is still an unlikely get for Calipari in the 2014 class, but if there’s a time to change his mind and open his eyes to the gold standard in Lexington, that’s a great weekend to do it.

    *Duke* But by all means, continue to write articles about him and praise him to no end. Like when Wiggins committed to Kansas after Drew drooled over him for 2 years… that was awesome

    What’s this “unlikely get” business? Did the Kentucky Wildcats get another coach than Cal? If not, then I wouldn’t describe any player as an “unlikely get.” (Actually, I wouldn’t use such a phrase in any instance, but that’s besides the point.)

    If cal felt he had absolutely no chance, I wouldn’t think he’d waste his time trying. Maybe we have a better shot than the experts think. I do think Cal would rather have oak for with Mudiay over Tyus jones. Mudiay fits the cal pg mold better and Jones, and jones seems to not be warm on uk. Maybe Cal thinks there’s a chance he can convince okafor that a package deal isn’t always for the best. Or maybe not, who knows.
