Could Bucknell and Kentucky trade Nate Sestina for Brad Calipari?!

We know Brad Calipari’s name is in the NCAA’s Transfer Portal, but we don’t have a definitive landing spot at this time. But now, Brad could be giving us a potential clue on his Instagram story… and it’s an interesting one.

The image shows the youngest Calipari’s shoes, with @iamwalterellis and @jsotos3 tagged in the photo. Who are @iamwalterellis and @jsotos3, you may ask? Well, it’s Walter Ellis and Jimmy Sotos – they’re both current basketball players for the Bucknell Bison. 

Could he just be off to visit old friends? Maybe. But Ellis is from Granger, Indiana, and he finished his high school playing career at the Brewster Academy in New Hampshire. Sotos’ hometown is listed as Chicago, Illinois, and he went to a public high school, James B. Conant High School, in a northwest suburb of the city. Brad, on the other hand, attended Lexington Christian Academy and the MacDuffie School in Massachusetts. Where’s the connection?


Maybe Brad is trolling us, or maybe he really is considering Nate Sestina’s former stomping grounds as his final collegiate destination. Only time will tell for certain.

If you’re the betting type, you can even wager on his school of choice, thanks to lines placed by the company Bovada. East Tennessee State was named the favorite as of Friday afternoon, while Bucknell wasn’t even listed as an option.

Now, following Brad’s mysterious Instagram story, do you think the Bison are in the market for a trade?
