They always say no rest for the weary so, naturally, John Calipari is back on the road.
Today, he was in Georgia, visiting 5-star Sharife Cooper. The 2020 recruit is currently listed as the No. 2 point guard in his class and the No. 21 overall player, according to 247Sports. He received a scholarship offer from Kentucky back in September while on his unofficial visit.

Now, he’s planning his official visit. Cooper is tentatively scheduled to make his way back to Lexington for the Auburn game on February 23. Interestingly enough, Cooper’s Crystal Ball is currently 80 percent Auburn and 20 percent Kentucky. Plus, Cooper’s high school teammate, 4-star small forward Isaac Okoro, signed with Auburn back in November. Could Bruce Pearl and the Tigers steal the show when they come to town for their matchup against Kentucky?
As if it wasn’t already important enough for the Cats to get a win over Auburn… Now, they also need to come out and impress Cooper. Rupp needs to be rocking for this one.
Just look at that hair – Sharife Cooper belongs at Kentucky.
