Calipari visited Mohamed Bamba to kick off recruiting period


John Calipari’s first stop on his recruiting tour was to Pennsylvania to see Mohamed Bamba, the five-star power forward that is high on Kentucky and Duke.

Bamba is one of Calipari’s top targets in the 2017 class for his length and athleticism, which has drawn comparisons to Anthony Davis and Karl-Anthony Towns. Coach Cal used the “position-less basketball” pitch on Bamba throughout the summer, a message the big man loves to hear as he hopes to become a versatile inside player. It’s no surprise he was first up on Cal’s list of visits to lead off the fall period.

Kevin Knox, a five-star forward, is also planning to meet with Calipari down in Florida today. Florida is not close to Pennsylvania, so Cal is getting good use out of the PJ on Day 1 of the new recruiting grind.
