As expected, John Calipari was asked about Skal Labissiere’s eligibility today at SEC Tipoff. Cal repeated the line he’s been using for weeks about the situation, referring to past players who have gone through the same process, but for once, there wasn’t total certainty in his voice. Here’s what he told Andy Katz:
“The thing with this, Andy, there are probably 50-60 kids that went through this. There are probably 15 still going through it. Last year, at this time, five of our kids hadn’t been cleared yet. So, we’re all feeling good, he’s feeling good, and we’re going to play that first game and we’ll see.”
Hopefully that “we’ll see” is just fatigue over being asked the same question over and over and not a tell of something more.
