So you may have heard that most of the nation’s college coaches were in Indianapolis today for summer recruiting action and you thought, “well where is Calipari”? It turns out he is getting his passport stamped as he is in Germany watching the USA under 17 national team and doing a little recruiting. Calipari made the trip to see the elite 2011 players including UK commits Michael Gilchrist and Marquis Teague, and other targets such as Johnny O Bryant, Quinn Cook, Tony Wroten, Brad Beal, Adonis Thomas, etc. Calipari is one of only a couple of coaches that is in Germany and the visit allows him to get quality (and important) time with the best of the best due to his willingness to make the trip across the seas to see him.
So there you go, nobody plays the recruiting game better than Calipari. And with Germany playing in the World Cup Semifinals tomorrow, we shall see if his presence is a good luck charm.
