Since the college hoops scandal broke back in September 2017, all of Kentucky’s haters have been waiting for the program or John Calipari’s name to surface. So far, that hasn’t happened, and today, one of the central figures gave a really good reason as to why.
Merl Code, a former Adidas consultant found guilty of funneling money to recruits to ensure they went to Adidas-sponsored schools and signed deals with the company once they turned pro, said he didn’t want his guys to go to Kentucky because he’d lose control over them. From Adam Zagoria, who is covering the second trial in New York:
‘If I let my kid go to Kentucky, I promise you I won’t get him back.’
Merl Code on not wanting to send recruits to Kentucky b/c he would lose control over them in the NBA process.’
