With Wenyen Gabriel on board and Big Blue Madness set for next Friday, John Calipari’s turning up the heat with recruiting. One of his biggest targets as of late is five-star power forward Edrice “Bam” Adebayo, who will take an official visit to Kentucky this weekend, according to Adam Zagoria.
Zagoria reports that Adebayo will also take an official visit to NC State on October 30. Most believe Adebayo is a lock to play with AAU teammate Dennis Smith for the Wolfpack, but that hasn’t stopped Cal from trying to snag him. Cal visited the North Carolina native on September 14 and 22, and getting him on campus for an official visit is a big deal, especially with ESPNU in town to televise Sunday night’s practice.
I can hear Calipari now: “Bam, how many NC State games are on national TV? At Kentucky, we bring in ESPN for a practice. A prac-tice.”
