Barry Rohrssen to UK is now the worst-kept secret in college basketball. Pitt just sent out a press release announcing that Rohrssen is leaving the staff, which makes his move to Kentucky all but certain. Last week, John Calipari said he was going to focus on the assistant coaching search this week, and it’s only a matter of time before UK sends out a press release of its own to announce the hiring.
Cal needed a home run hire to fill Orlango Antigua’s shoes, especially in recruiting, and it looks like they’re getting one in Rohrssen. Rohrssen is a New York native with strong ties in the area, and is said to be just as impressive a recruiter as Antigua. At Pitt, he already reeled in a commitment from top 2016 point guard Mustapha Heron, something to keep an eye on going forward.
