    Lightbulb Cal Making Serious Effort To Land BOTH Wiseman AND Carey “UK’s A Different Animal”

    The new recruiting guy On CI (Sisk) had a lengthy interview with Vernon Carey’s coach after Cal visited him again Friday. Extremely positive for the Cats. Carey’s coach said “a lot of schools are recruiting Vernon, but UK is a different animal”

    I realize it is sacrilege to say this, but landing Wiseman AND Vernon would be similar to getting AD and Cousins in the same recruiting class. I would bet Cal is selling both on this very thing.

    A year and a half back Slater predicted UK was going to “clean up in 2019”. A class of:

    Carey
    Wiseman
    Matthew Hurt
    Maxey
    Antoine
    Jeffries

    Would certainly fit that.

    Cal is certainly recruiting this group very hard, and you have to give Joel Justus credit for laying the foundation with this group. That early foundation was something that hadn't been done since Antigua departed. When Justus became an assistant in 2016-2017 he began working on the freshman and sophomore groups, those guys are now the guys Cal is recruiting for the 2019 and 2020 recruiting classes.

    So important to land that generational player for cal to win one, ad was that guy, towns and wall years were the other ones and we were so close

    We aren’t Duke/UNC/Kansas, but in particular the first two. No problems for them. Problems galore for us in eligibility.

    How would there be eligibility issues? If it is over the rent issues there are no issues if they are paying a fair market rate.

    It MAY be ok, I’m just hypersensitive to this type of thing, we know how it plays with UK vs the other blue blood schools.

    Do we? Sandy tends to steer Cal away from guys with issues. Let's see how this works out, if Cal suddenly drops them then it may be because Sandy has said there will be issues.

    yes, I doubt he is in Lexington. I do believe UK leads for Lewis though. academics or eligibility have little to do with it. I think he is Duke bound, and that's fine

    I've long advocated Carey and Wiseman as the foundation for a final four team. They are complimentary player in the would make the other better. Carey is a beast and I love his game, more than Wiseman. Attitude, physicality and a top notch game. He is my most coveted recruit in the class

    Kentucky’s John Calipari has no plans to meet with 2019 Vern Carey today, his father tells me. Reports had them meeting.

    Zags is the guy that reported that they were meeting today, the way he phrased the tweet you would think someone else had wrongly issued the report.
