After a brief stop at spring practice this morning, John Calipari is off on the recruiting trail. His first stop? St. Louis, where he will visit 2016 shooting guard/small forward Jayson Tatum. Tatum is considered the fourth best player and the second best shooting guard in the 2016 class by 247 Sports Composite, and has offers from all the big schools, including Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, Florida, Missouri, Michigan State, and UNC.
Tatum took an unofficial visit to Kentucky last season for Big Blue Madness. This will be Cal’s third trip to see him, and the second time this week he’s stopped in to see at 2016 star. Yesterday, he visited the top player in the 2016 class, Harry Giles. He also checked in on 2015 commitment Charles Matthews in Chicago. On Monday, John Robic visited 2016 PG Quentin Goodin, who will be EYBL teammates with Jayson Tatum this summer.
Tatum will have a full house today, with Cal, Coach K, AND Tom Crean expected to visit. Hopefully the stench of Crean’s desperation clears by the time Cal walks in.
