John Calipari and the Kentucky coaching staff have been working their tails off lately and it might be about to pay off in the form of top-50 player and one of the best power forwards in the country.
Not even 24 hours after Cal and company made an in-home visit to four-star forward Lance Ware, the No. 32 overall prospect in 2020 according to 247 Sports, it was reported that he is expected to make his college announcement this Thursday.

In Jack Pilgrim’s Recruiting Roundup from earlier on Tuesday, it was stated that there is considerable buzz that Ware is trending towards the Cats. The Crystal Ball for 247 Sports has Kentucky in the lead with 88 percent of the experts predicting Ware to Lexington.
Viewed as the No. 1 overall player out of New Jersey, Ware also tweeted out some eye emojis this morning.

Time to dissect what those eyes might mean. But all signs are pointing towards Ware choosing the Wildcats in a couple of days.
