Calipari to visit Myles Turner tomorrow

Today it’s Tyus Jones, tomorrow it’s Myles Turner. Coach Cal will travel down to Euless, Texas on Wednesday to visit Turner,’s No. 2 overall player in the 2014 class. The 7-footer is taking his time with the recruiting process but Kentucky is squarely in the mix with Kansas, Duke, Louisville, Arizona, Ohio State, Texas and Oklahoma State.

Turner currently has one official visit scheduled, to Kansas for Midnight Madness. There’s also been recent talk that he is considering joining Emmanuel Mudiay at SMU.

He recently wrote in his blog that he likes Coach Cal because Cal is so laid back: “He told me straight-up: “Myles I’m a 50-year-old man and you’re a teenager; there’s nothing we can talk about every day. I’m not gonna be calling you seven days a week.” I really liked that.”

    I wonder if RJ Corman willed his Jet to UK to use for recruiting. Serious question. I’m pretty sure it was his jet that Cal used.

    Good grief, this SMU stuff is utterly ridiculous. How many of these kids will be led astray by Larry Brown’s last stand?

    Word here in Texas is that SMU is making a big push for Turner.
    Looks like hiring Larry Brown was a good move

    Don’t worry UK coaching staff has the use of someone else’s jets.

    Did I have a good time, do i want to play with Ullis and Booker, how do I feel about completeing in practice with only freshman? Do I want to join the legacy of the players and environment i witnessed last night? Am I a Cat or naught?
