With the signings of Malik Monk and Bam Adebayo in the final hours of the early signing period, John Calipari locked down the nation’s best recruiting class, and he did it all before Christmas. That’s pretty remarkable, considering the haul and how quickly it came together.
Calipari believes this is his best to date — remember, he hinted at this potentially becoming his best in a conversation with Seth Greenberg over the summer.
So what does it mean for Cal’s future at Kentucky?
He ain’t going anywhere.
With the way Kentucky’s roster projects for the 2016-17 season, there isn’t a chance in a hundred hells that Calipari leaves it for dead and bolts to the NBA. Kentucky will likely enter that season as a strong favorite for the national title and he is licking his chops at the thought of coaching that team. It has all the athleticism he loves to coach, and then some.
It’s safe to say we can put any and all rumors to bed for another 18 months.
