Calipari raves about next year’s guard-heavy roster

John Calipari is at the SEC Spring Meetings in Destin and spoke to Darrell Bird yesterday about his new squad, specifically his incoming freshmen. Spoiler: he’s very excited.

Even though he couldn’t mention Ashton Hagans, who is still in the process of reclassifying to the 2018 class, Calipari seemed thrilled to have a full stable of guards, even hinting at playing four at once (!) ala Villanova. One of the players that can make that happen is Keldon Johnson, a versatile wing that Calipari compared to an all-time favorite.

“Keldon has a chance to be special. He could play 1, 2 or 3,” Calipari said. “He’s got size. He’s got some length. Unbelievable toughness. Not backing down. Like, I don’t care what happens, he ain’t backing down. But it’s an energy, a spirit about him that he brings like a Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.”

Basically, get ready to see a lot of guard combinations in the Bahamas. For more quotes from Calipari on Immanuel Quickley, Tyler Herro, and EJ Montgomery, head on over to CatsPause.com.

    Well yes he loves guards. Like the story says he will play four alot. With Washington and Johnson that makes it possible. And I think in college basketball is kind of going that way more and more. Last year I liked what Jay wright did with nova. I like this team with Washington coming back and if Reid joins this team WOW. DEEP RUN COMING.
