Calipari may have been in Colorado at a training camp for USA Basketball U19, but it may as well been one giant recruiting trip.
After three days of instruction with their potential coach Immanuel Quickley, Cameron Reddish and Romeo Langford all agree that the training camp was an advantage for Kentucky.
Thanks to the Herald-Leader’s Ben Roberts, we know what the three recruits think:
Quickley: “It’s definitely an advantage,” he said. “No doubt.”
Reddish: “I get to see how he really coaches. How he is outside of recruiting,” Reddish said. “I like him. He pushes me to get better. That’s what I need – somebody who’s going to push me to the limit, and that’s what he’s doing.”
Langford: “I like the way he coaches,” he said. “He doesn’t let you slide on anything. Little things like catching the ball with two hands. Little things like that – that’s what makes you better as a player.
“It kind of gives him a head start. I get to see how he coaches, and I get to see if I like the way that he teaches his kids.”
I like the way these guys are talking.
