It’s Thursday afternoon, which means it’s time to sell mattresses and talk recruiting. You ready? I’m ready.

  UK is checking in on Wenyen Gabriel

Calipari is in Springfield, Massachusetts for the Hall of Fame festivities, but you know what’s only a 26-minute drive away from the Hall of Fame? Wilbraham, Massachusetts, where Wenyen Gabriel lives. According to ZagsBlog, the UK staff will check in with the five-star power forward today prior to his official visit on September 25. How’s that for impressive scheduling? “Hey Wenyen, we’ll be there soon. Cal has to get his Hall of Fame blazer first.”

  Cal visited Miles Bridges and Malik Monk yesterday

The recruiting dead period is over, and John Calipari celebrated by visiting the rumored package deal of Miles Bridges and Malik Monk. Monk also saw Arkansas, the other rumored frontrunner, yesterday, and will host Oregon tomorrow. Bridges will take his official visit to Michigan State, his other rumored frontrunner, this weekend.

Here’s a recent mixtape to remind you how much we want Monk:

  He also saw 2017 5-star shooting guard Hamidou Diallo

Chris Fisher is reporting that Cal also stopped by Putnam Science Academy in Connecticut to see 2017 5-star shooting guard Hamidou Diallo (no relation to Cheick Diallo). The 6’4″ 170 lbs. Diallo is considered the third best shooting guard and the 11th overall prospect in the 2017 class, and has early offers from UConn, Kansas, St. John’s, Indiana, Louisville, Maryland, and others. He made a name for himself during the NBAP Top 100 camp this summer. Keep an eye on him as the recruiting period goes on.

  Meanwhile, Rawle Alkins hung out with Slice Rohrssen

Which just makes me miss Slice Rohrssen. Also, put on some real shoes, Chris Mullin. Next to Slice, you look like a hobo.

 NC State’s Mark Gottfried took a helicopter to see Bam Adebayo and Dennis Smith, Jr. 

Both have offers from Kentucky. NC State’s Mark Gottfried pulled a Mark Stoops and took a helicopter to check in on them:

Dennis Smith, Jr. is recovering from ACL surgery and is still walking with a crutch:

 It looks like Kash Daniel and Tobias Gilliam enjoyed themselves Saturday

Both 2016 UK commits uploaded pics from the game:

Meanwhile, fellow commit Kayune Ross couldn’t make the game, but had this message to share with the haters:

Seems like a good note to end on, right?

    Slice had to put up with Calipari yelling at everyone on the team like a mad man for a year, including the coaches and staff. I think Slice earned the $300K.
