Simmons sets official visit to UK, says “I’m their guy”

Following his first game in Atlanta at the adidas Gauntlet Finals this evening, Kobi Simmons spoke to a handful of reporters about his recruitment and his relationship with John Calipari and Kentucky.

The biggest news of the interview came when Simmons announced he will take his official visit to Lexington on August 28.  “I’m their guy,” he said of UK.

Xavier will get a visit the following weekend on September 4. He is not their guy.

    That sounds like very good news to me. Since most of the services seem to think Tatum and Giles are going elsewhere.

    Big time combo guard, would be a huge pickup. He can step into Briscoe’s role next to Tyler or play the 3 if Murray is the only one to leave. Having him committed before the season starts would really take the pressure off recruiting another wing next spring if we need to. Now all we need is our annual elite big man. The problem seems to be there aren’t as many even though the class is deep. If we can’t pull in one of Giles/Adebayo/Maker, it may be the first time in 8 years Cal doesn’t have a top 10 big man.

    As a lifelong UK fan and a current Xavier undergrad, my only response to this news is, “He’s visiting Xavier?!?”
