It’s Tuesday afternoon, which means it’s time to give you the latest recruiting news while trying to sell you a fantastic mattress from Sleep Outfitters. Let’s get to it!

Malik Monk and Jayson Tatum faced off Saturday night

In case you missed it, yesterday, USA Basketball released the Nike Hoop Summit roster and to almost everyone’s surprise, five-star guard Malik Monk wasn’t on it. Monk is considered a top five player by most recruiting services, so the omission was pretty unexpected, but who needs validation from an all-star roster when you’ve got stone cold basketball skills?

Monk faced off against fellow 2016 star and future Dukie Jayson Tatum on Saturday night and the highlights are impressive. After scoring 53 points the night before, Monk scored 36 against Chaminade, while Tatum put up 40.

Jarred Vanderbilt messed around and almost got a triple double in Lexington on Sunday

6’8″ small forward Jarred Vanderbilt is one of the Cats’ top priorities in the 2017 class and took an unofficial visit to Kentucky on Saturday while in town for the Bluegrass Showcase. Calipari returned the favor by watching Vanderbilt play that night and on Sunday, the Texas native almost got a triple double, putting up 33 points, 23 rebounds and 9 assists in Victory Prep’s loss to Word of God Christian Academy.

Ben Roberts spoke to Vanderbilt, who had nothing but great things to say about Calipari and his trip to Rupp:

“The atmosphere at Rupp Arena was just great,” he said. “It’s a great program. Coach Cal’s a great coach, a legendary coach. And it seems like he gets the best out of the guys and puts them in the right position to excel.”

The Cats are considered the frontrunner for Vanderbilt, but don’t expect a decision anytime soon.

On the football side of things…

Jedrick Willis ranked 15th best player in 2017

Rivals released their new 2017 recruiting rankings yesterday and Lafayette offensive lineman Jedrick Wills is now considered the 15th overall recruit in the class. Wills, teammate of current UK commits Landon Young (2016) and Walker Wood (2017), is high atop Mark Stoops’ wish list for 2017 and reportedly came close to committing earlier in the fall. Landing him over the likes of Alabama, Florida, Ohio State, Notre Dame, etc. would be a coup to say the least.

Drake Jackson is savage with the jokes

Kash Daniel, Drake Jackson, and Landon Young all took their official visits to Kentucky this past weekend and Jackson had a grand old time making fun of Kash Daniel’s tight t-shirts:

Yes, that is Kash is passed out during Saturday’s game against Arizona State at Rupp Arena:
