2016 #1 player Jayson Tatum shows out in front of Coach Cal in West Virginia

John Calipari and Slice Rohrssen were in West Virginia yesterday for the Cancer Research Classic to watch #16 ranked 2015 power forward, Carlton Bragg. Bragg had 16 points in his team’s 69-67 win over Arlington Country Day (Jacksonville, FL.). Villa Angela-St. Joseph boy’s basketball and Carlton Bragg retained their #1 national ranking in this game with the win over Country Day.

Cal also stayed for Chaminade Prep’s game against Stevenson Lincolnshire (Ill.), and saw the #1 player in the class of 2016, Jayson Tatum, have a phenomenal game with 39 points, 14 rebounds, 3 assists, and going 12-12 from the free-throw line. Tatum lead his squad to an 88-81 victory over Stevenson Lincolnshire, and certainly peaked Cal’s interest even further with Tatum. Honestly, 39 points has become an average night for the kid lately, dropping 44 and 31 in big games in recent months. He has been in contact with UK a whole bunch since 2013 and came to campus back in October of 2013 for an unofficial visit in Lexington.

Cal may be NBA commisioner someday if he keeps recruiting like this, who knows.
