The Sources Say Podcast Ep. 22: John Calipari is relentless on the recruiting trail (again); Ranking the top 20 prospects in the class of 2020

KSR’s Jack Pilgrim is joined by Travis Graf and David Sisk of Cats Illustrated for episode 22 of the Sources Say Podcast. This week, the trio of recruiting insiders start the show by talking about John Calipari going crazy on the recruiting trail (again), laying the ground work for prospects ranging from the class of 2020 to 2023.

Among the topics:

  • Where in the world is John Calipari, and where has he been?
  • The UK staff visits Lance Ware (2020), Jonathan Kuminga (2021, Kennedy Chandler (2021), Zion Cruz (2022), Jalen Duren (2022), Trey Kaufman (2021), and DJ Wagner (2023)
  • What is the significance in the prospects the staff has visited and when they did so?
  • Is Immanuel Quickley going to lead the Kentucky offense next season? Or is he slowly turning into a pro prospect? Where does Devin Askew fit into the equation?

Then, the Sources Say crew touch on Greg Brown’s upcoming official visit to Lexington before ranking Brown, along with the rest of the elite prospects in the class of 2020, from one to twenty.

A few talking points:

  • Does Kentucky have a chance with the top-ten, five-star forward out of Texas? Who is the leader in his recruitment?
  • Can the Wildcats make up ground this weekend?
  • Fans of all schools complain about rankings of their favorite prospects every year. We respond with a 1-20 ranking of our own.
  • Who are the consensus top four prospects? How crazy do things get from there? Is there that much of a difference between the top 20 prospects? Is that a good or bad thing?

They close the show by breaking down Kentucky’s recent victories over the Louisville Cardinals and Missouri Tigers before analyzing the team’s trip to Georgia on Tuesday.

  • How serious is Ashton Hagans’ injury? Will he play against his hometown Bulldogs?
  • If not, who will step up?
  • Has Nick Richards officially clicked?
