Coach Cal is out recruiting in New York today

@AdamZagoria

Calipari was up early with his coffee and Tony Barbee to watch Rawle Alkins at the adidas Uprising All-American Camp in New York. Alkins, who announced last night he will attend Big Blue Madness, told Adam Zagoria he hears from Kentucky “almost every day.”

After watching Alkins earlier this morning, Cal moved over to Court 1 where he is now checking out Kobi Simmons, his top backcourt target in the 2016 class. Simmons also said he talks to the UK head coach almost every day.

    Need another elite recruiter like Slice or O to join the staff. Barbee isn’t goin to cut it. IMO thats major reason we missed in the late signing period. So grateful to have Murray though, would rather have him than all the one’s we struck out on. Murray will be one of the greatest players of the Cal era when all is said and done. If you haven’t done so check out his mix tapes. Dude is absolutely amazing. Can do it all, see no weaknesses in his game

    I hope you are right, but to say he will be one of the best of the Cal era is awfully big shoes to fill. IMO. I think he is extremely talented and a must have for this class, but let’s not get too caught up on hoopmixtapes. I don’t think his mixtape has anything on John Wall’s. Best I’ve ever seen.

      When all is said and done and season is over, remember I told you so way back in July. Murray is a very special talent and he will be one of ,if not the best of the Calipari era.

    Funny class this past year, but Cal still did a stellar job landing the #1 C and #1 PG/combo guard. We can’t get every recruit and you are going to lose out on recruits now and again. Picking up Murray was an absolute must and gives us legitimate national championship aspirations. That’s all you can ask for as a fan base. Assistant coaches like coach O and Slice are great for the program and did a great job while here, but these kids come to play for Cal make no mistake about it. As long as he’s in Lexington the talent will keep coming.
