Ashton Hagans is expected to reclassify and join Kentucky this summer, so it’s not surprising that John Calipari was asked about him at the SEC spring meetings last week. Unfortunately, Calipari committed a minor NCAA violation by discussing Hagans, who has yet to sign a letter of intent.
According to Kyle Tucker, Cal was asked if he thought Kentucky would have landed Hagans, a former Georgia commit, if Georgia hadn’t fired Mark Fox. Calipari responded, but since Hagans hasn’t signed the paperwork to join Kentucky’s roster, it’s considered a secondary (minor) violation. Thankfully, it won’t affect Hagans’ eligibility, but UK will have to report it, meaning we’ll see it on that ridiculous list of self-reported violations in a few months.
