Never one to just sit at home on a Wednesday night, John Calipari is back on the recruiting trail. According to Jake Weingarten, Calipari will watch five-star forward Paolo Banchero tonight in Seattle, Washington. Banchero’s O’Dea squad takes on Eastside Catholic in the Metro League Tournament Semifinals at 5 p.m. PT.
Banchero is the No. 4 player in the 2021 class, but there are still rumors he could reclassify to 2020. A Tennessee assistant is also expected to be in attendance tonight, while Gonzaga’s Mark Few watched Banchero put up over 30 points in O’Dea’s win over West Seattle on Monday.

Kentucky is one of nine schools on Banchero’s list, along with Duke, Gonzaga, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgetown, Baylor, Memphis, and Washington. The Cats sure could use him next season…
