Calipari in Canada Update



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.

    I’m taking a big shot in the dark here, but is it at all possible that we get this guy along with a reclassified RJ Barrett and next year’s team becomes the Kentucky Wildcanadians?

    Quickley King Shittu Zion mixed with who’s returning. Maybe Cal goes after 1 more big but we aren’t getting Bagley and I doubt we get Barrett if he reclasses

    I wonder if World Wide Wes converts the cash into Canadian for Cal…

      Do the imaginary scandals involving Cal somehow relieve the pain of the real ones at loserville?
