Jeff Goodman has made the switch from CBS Sports to ESPN, where he now rests comfortably with his feet propped up on the Insider pay wall. Goodman surveyed more than 200 college coaches on which assistant coach they feared most on the recruiting trail. Not surprisingly, Orlando Antigua made the list, coming in at number five:
5. Orlando Antigua, Kentucky Wildcats
John Calipari has no peer when it comes to recruiting — and the combo of Cal and Kentucky is nearly unbeatable. That’s part of what makes Antigua feared, but he’s also done more than his part to make certain UK continues to get elite players season after season.
Antigua is currently coaching the Dominican Republic National Team, which includes 2014 UK signee Karl Towns. There’s rumors that 2014 PF Angel Delgado may join the DR’s Junior Team, which could mean Coach O could work his recruiting magic once again.
Check out the rest of Jeff’s list over at ESPN Insider, if you’re into that sort of thing.
