A few recruiting tidbits before you start your night:

2015 shooting guard Luke Kennard took his second unofficial visit to Kentucky this month this past weekend. His father told the Herald-Leader’s Ben Roberts that the family decided to swing by Lexington after dropping their daughter off at college:

“It was kind of a spur of the moment thing. We just kind of stopped in. It wasn’t anything big. Not anything too exciting – we just stopped in to say hello and that was basically it.”

Luke and his parents spoke to Cal for about 20 minutes then got back on the road to Ohio. He’s considered the 21st best player in the 2015 class by Rivals and has offers from North Carolina, Indiana, Duke, and others. Two visits in three week? Sounds like he wants to be a Cat to me.

Kennard’s father tells ZagsBlog that his son will narrow his list of schools in the next two to three weeks.

— In 2014 recruiting news, Stanley Johnson tells The Courier-Journal’s Steve Jones that he’ll have an in-home visit with Calipari on September 12th. He’s scheduled to take his official visit to Kentucky for Big Blue Madness on October 18th.

Go get ’em, Cal.

    If basically the whole family is randomly visiting, then that has to be a pretty good sign

    #3- Not exactly random. Luke has an older sister that goes to college at either EKU or Georgetown (I forget which). But it is a good sign that they stopped by to visit again. The rumors up here in the town where he lives is that it’s down to UK (entire family are Cats fans…but Dad doesn’t care for Coach Cal), Duke (Dad’s preference), and Ohio State (good friend and AAU teammate just committed to OSU).

    #4. Luke’s sister, Lauren goes to Georgetown. Don’t know where you are getting your info on Mark not liking Coach Cal….not true.

    If the entire family are cats fans then they would not “prefer” Duke just because they allegedly don’t like Coach Cal.
