University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Calipari offered a 2017 five-star forward last night

Coach Cal is busy trying to piece together a potentially historic 2016 recruiting class, but he hasn’t forgotten to stay in touch with the 2017 guys in the process. Last night he extended a scholarship offer to Jarred Vanderbilt, a top-five player in the class.

Vanderbilt is the 10th high school junior to receive an offer from Kentucky. He tweeted the news last night shortly after hearing from Calipari:

At 6-foot-8, 200 pounds, Vanderbilt is ESPN’s No. 1 power forward and the No. 2 small forward in the Rivals and Top247 rankings.

Check him out at the NBA’s Top 100 Camp…
