Kentucky offered 2018 7-footer Bol Bol last night

It’s not every Tuesday that you get to wake up to news that Kentucky offered one of the most exciting players in the 2018 class. Last night, John Calipari and Kenny Payne extended an offer to Bol Bol, the 7-1 son of NBA player Manute Bol. Bol shared the happy news on Twitter:

Bol is considered the second best power forward and the fifth best overall player in the 2018 class by 247 Sports. He’s tearing up the spring circuit, averaging over 25 points and nine rebounds per game in EYBL play. Over the weekend, Calipari and Payne got to see him battle the top player in the class, Marvin Bagley, at the EYBL event in Indianapolis:

Some more highlights from the weekend before:

    Get Bagley, Williamson, and Bol and retain some guards from this year and win a National Championship.

    I saw enough video there to see that Bagley and Williamson are wayyy above the other players in that class

      Bagley and Williamson are way above who? They are not way above Bol! The expert recruiter you are judging a kids game from 2 – 3 minute highlight Clips. I thought it was about time they offered Bol. The kid is he extremely tall, when he played against Bagley he TOURED over him, he was at least 5 inches taller. Coming from a guy who has actually seen him play in GAMES, he has all the tools to be a star in college and beyond. He shoots it like a guard, can handle it like a wing, and block shots like his DAD. He can also rebound it pretty good. They say Mo bamba standing reach is 9’6” then Bols is at least that long maybe even longer! Please do not compare him to Wenyen either he is WAY better and taller. Bagley is better than him, but he’s just as good if not better than every other big in the class.

    It’s hard to imagine a player more perfectly suited for Cal. Coach is probably the only man alive suited to get the best of out this kid’s particular skill set. If Bol Bol doesn’t choose the Cats, it will be a tragedy for himself and us.

    Bol might not be done growing…., he has better handles than daddy for sure. His shot and his gait resemble Manute though. His shooting is better for his age, it took his dad a few years to start shooting.
