After visiting five-star prospects Bryan Antoine and Scottie Lewis on Saturday, John Calipari was in Texas this afternoon to conduct an in-home visit with Tyrese Maxey today.

And according to Evan Daniels, a reclassification is still absolutely on the table for the Wildcat target.

Last week, SEC Country’s Kyle Tucker broke the news that Maxey was contemplating a move to the class of 2018, and that John Calipari was pushing for it to happen. Maxey’s “mentor” said he was “99-percent” certain the five-star guard would be sticking in the class of 2019, though Maxey himself said he’s very interested.

No matter which year he plays in college, now that Maxey’s father is no longer on staff at SMU, Kentucky is seen as the runaway favorite in his recruitment.

Calipari will meet with both Vernon Carey Jr. and James Wiseman for in-home visits tomorrow afternoon, as well.

This man is relentless.

    If Cal’s actually pushing or encouraging anyone besides Hagans to reclassify then he must know more Cats are leaving.

    Reclass is the new trend. Cal is usually ahead of the curve on things, but was a little behind on this one (see Bagley). Now he’s racing to get a head of the curve. Props to him for not sitting back and ignoring this trend. If you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. First of all, many kids these days reclass a class down when they enter HS and/or transfer to a private school so they can play against age groups younger and show better. Secondly, when I was in HS, my Senior year was, by far, my easiest. All of the hard work was done grades 9-11 so that I could coast and really enjoy my Senior year. Now it’s been a minute since I was in HS, but it was a good plan then. I imagine it’s a good plan now.

      Cal a little behind? Didn’t Karl-Anthony Towns, Dakari Johnson, and Jamal Murray reclassify?

      Thanks for your post. Kept me from having to go back and look all of that up. UKLugo is not a 24/7/365 fan or he would have none this. Just thinking Coach K is ahead of Coach Cal in anything almost makes me go into a dying quiver. #GoBigBlue

      Yeah, I suppose you’re right. The trend is picking up steam, though.
