We spent a portion of yesterday trying to figure out whether John Calipari took Jamal Murray with him on his recruiting trip to Canada. Well, Calipari just gave us our official answer on Twitter by posting that picture. It looks as though Cal is recruiting the help of Jamal Murray to help bring five-star recruit Simisola Shittu to Lexington. Shittu is 6’8 forward who is originally from Burlington, Ontario. Ranked as the number #9 player in the class of 2018, Shittu is currently playing for the Vermont Academy in Saxtons River, Vermont.
Currently, Calipari and Murray are watching Shittu play in the Classic Exposure Camp in Brampton, Ontario. The Cats have had luck in the past recruiting players from north of the border with the most notables being Jamaal Magloire, Mychal Mulder and Jamal Murray.
You can watch Shittu work below. You can see where he gets the comparison to Bam Adebayo.
