Coach Cal continues to move about the country with his virtual Rupp Arena iPad and today he will make an appearance in the Garden State to see one of his five-star center targets.
Calipari is scheduled to meet with Nick Richards of The Patrick School today for the second time in the past week, which shows just how bad he wants the kid.
Kentucky is the heavy, heavy, heavy favorite to land Richards and there is some scuttlebutt bouncing around the interwebs that suggests the nation’s second-ranked center will be the Cats’ first commit in the 2017 class.

Richards plans to visit Kentucky on September 30.
Cal, along with UK assistant Tony Barbee, will also meet with one of Richard’s teammates, 2019 point guard Al-Amir Dawes.
