2017 is looking good for UK fans as Calipari signs another top player

Coach Calipari
Coach Calipari

Calipari is the master at recruiting. He has proven that. So much so that the best of the best in college basketball has started following Coach Cal’s lead. Coach K, Dukes coach and long an opponent of the one and done system, has become what he long complained about, a one and done recruiter. Calipari has never hid from it. He openly states that his job is to get his players to the next level For them to have a great life and he is using their basketball skills to get them there. You need to look no further than the NBA where Kentucky players are all across the professional landscape.

Cal added to his recruiting pool of great players by adding Jarred Vanderbilt (No.22). The No. 22 recruit in the ESPN 100 chose Kentucky over TCU, Oregon and North Carolina.

Kentucky doesn’t have a top ten recruit, yet, but there are still talented players waiting to decide where to play. If they are looking at moving on to the NBA, UK is the place to be.

BSN will keep you updated as more players choose the top winning program in the country, the UK Wildcats.
