Simi Shittu sets official visits, Kentucky NOT on the list

A few weeks ago, Kentucky was thought to be the favorite for versatile Canadian forward Simi Shittu, but tonight, he released his list of official visits, and Kentucky’s not on it:

What gives? Earlier this week, UK offered Jaxson Hayes, a big man on the rise in the 2018 class, a sign Calipari may be going in a different direction. Additionally, three recruiting experts, including 247 Sports’ Jerry Meyer, have switched their picks to Arizona in Shittu’s Crystal Ball. Kentucky will only take a handful of players in the 2018 class, and with Immanuel Quickley, Zion Williamson, R.J. Barrett, Keldon Johnson, and potentially Hayes or Bol Bol high on that list, the writing may be on the wall.

Shittu, we hardly knew you…

    Maybe we’ll get his cousin Complete Shittu instead.

    With that last name, I’m going to say thank you for not visiting. SEC away games would be pretty brutal.

      Yeah, that’s one of the best recruits in the country for not coming here cause of your last name. How petty are you scale of 1-10?

    He still has two visits left so you can’t count Cal out just yet!
