In town to see De’Aaron Fox, Calipari also visited a special UK fan

As I mentioned earlier, John Calipari traveled to Houston, Texas today to check in on De’Aaron Fox, who’s expected to commit to Kentucky in the next few weeks. According to Anthony Wireman, while at Cypress Lakes High, Calipari also checked in on Seth Barnett, a 16-year old UK fan with cerebral palsy.

As you may remember, Fox invited Barnett on his in-home visit with Cal and Kenny Payne a few months back. We reported the story when it happened and it took off. Today, Calipari brought Barnett a copy of the Herald-Leader article about their visit and signed it for him:

Pretty awesome. Also, is anyone surprised that Calipari has added “HOF ’15” to his signature?
