  • Hickman becomes the first player to back out of a letter of intent under John Calipari
  • What led to the decommitment?
  • Breaking down comments from Hickman’s father with KSR
  • Does Kentucky have a replacement (or two) in mind?
  • How fast does Calipari need to move?
  • What news would make Kentucky fans feel better about the decommitment?
  • Calipari can cast a wide net at the position, but he’s got to pull in a few big fish
  • Any other news on the horizon?

    I’ve been as big a Coach Cal fan as anyone..but clearly he is losing his grip on the program. Sounds like the grind of recruiting and relationship building with these 17-18 year olds is taking its toll, and he has seemingly lost his touch. We all know he is sort of nuts as a coach to deal with….but it doesn’t appear that kids today relate even a little bit with him any more so it is all on the assistants to do the heavy lifting. The downward trend is real…but is it reversible. I have my doubts…

      Let the off season conclude before jumping to any conclusions. We are still a long way away from it being over. The NBA draft isn’t until July.
