It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time to go over the latest recruiting news and convince you to buy a mattress. Let’s get on it!

  Edrice “Bam” Adebayo will be on campus this weekend

The biggest recruiting development this week is news that five-star power forward Edrice “Bam” Adebayo will take an official visit to Kentucky this weekend. The North Carolina native is considered an NC State lean, but Calipari has been putting on the press lately, visiting him twice in eight days last month. Getting him on campus this weekend is huge, especially with ESPN in town to film UK’s practice Sunday night.

  Calipari visited Marques Bolden today

Ben Roberts is reporting that Cal visited the nation’s top center again today in advance of his visit to Kentucky next week for Big Blue Madness. Cal and Tony Barbee went to see Bolden on September 17. This weekend, the 6’10” Texas native will visit Kansas for Late Night in the Phog.

  Here’s the guest list for Big Blue Madness as we know it

Big Blue Madness is next Friday, and over the past several days, the guest list has grown. Here’s the latest list of recruits who’ll be in town to hopefully rock that Kentucky blue:

  • Marques Bolden
  • Harry Giles
  • De’Aaron Fox
  • Malik Monk
  • Sacha Killeya-Jones (commit)
  • Trae Young (2017)
  • Kris Wilkes (2017)

Bolden announced a few days ago he’ll be making the trip, and gave Rivals’ TJ Walker this encouraging quote about his latest visit with Cal:

“Coach Calipari came and he really just preached to me the way he does things and the way he helps his players. He told me he really wants to coach me and we’d go from there. It was a strong message he sent out, all the success he’s had and all the players he’s coached. It’s great to hear that from him.”

Nice to hear. Hopefully he’ll enjoy seeing that message hammered home during Madness.


  Stoops is spending his bye week on the recruiting trail

Don’t worry, Stoops isn’t slacking during the bye week. Last night, he told Tom Leach and his call-in show listeners that he’ll spend the bye week recruiting. Last week, he watched Kash Daniel in Paintsville and Davonte Robinson and Henry Clay play at Pulaski County. He told a hilarious story about how DJ Eliot wrecked his car when they were headed to one of the games last week.

“We don’t get out of the parking lot before he gets in a wreck. Ray, you’ll be glad to know it was in the Ford, not the Mercedes,” Stoops said. “He goes up on a curb and comes down and my whole running board falls off on my Ford. I said ‘get out,’ and he gets out and gets in the passenger seat and I have to drive there and back. I’m worried about my own safety.”

Something tells me Stoops will be driving to the games this Friday as well.

  In case you missed it on Friday, here’s Kash Daniel’s awesome pregame speech

Kash is the gift that keeps on giving. What will he do this week?

    Awesome…but I’m curious what well do with all these power forwards… With bam on the team, that would make 4, Giles would make 5!

      Offensively, in Cal’s system, the 3 and 4 positions are basically interchangeable. The 4’s that have already signed — Gabriel and SKJ — are well-rounded face-up forwards that can play out on the wings as well. In other words, they’re “combo forwards”. I wouldn’t worry too much about that.
