John Calipari made a trip to Memphis this afternoon to visit one very important prospect.
Evan Daniels reports Coach Cal had an in-home visit with five-star center James Wiseman tonight, per his mother:

We figured Cal was up to something tonight, as he posted the following tweet just 40 minutes before Daniels released the report:

Wiseman, a 7-foot center out of Memphis, is set to officially visit the Tigers this weekend on an official visit. He cut his final list to Florida State, Kansas, Kentucky, Memphis and Vanderbilt, though most assume the decision will likely come down to the Cats and the Tigers, with Memphis having a slight lead.
Wiseman has said in the past that he is planning on announcing his decision in the spring, though he backed off of that a bit recently, saying there’s a chance he commits and signs in the fall.
Though Memphis is seen as the perceived leader, Daniels (one of the best in the business) is still picking the Cats to land the elite big man whenever that decision does finally come.
Until then, watch him work:
Come on down, young fella.
