Brad Calipari to Become UK Walk-On Starting with 2016-2017 Season
Kentucky's 2016 recruiting class is ranked number one by most outlets, but guess who else will be playing alongside De'Aron Fox, Malik Monk, Edrice "Bam" Adebayo, Wenyen Gabriel, and Sacha Killeya-Jones and the players that return?
Current Granbie MacDuffie School senior guard Brad Calipari.
If the name rings a bell, well it should. He's coach John Calipari's son.
Not since the days of Tubby and Saul Smith has Kentucky seen a coach/son combo in Rupp Arena.
On Sunday afternoon, Brad Calipari tweeted this:
The young Calipari had piqued the interest of some Ivy League schools as well as East Tennessee State and Liberty University.
But it's the Wildcat uniform he'll be wearing beginning this fall.
And who knows how that will affect any future decisions by John Calipari about coaching at Kentucky. In fact, last spring he told Andy Katz and Seth Greenberg of ESPN he might be at UK into his 70s if his son were to walk on for the 'Cats.
I'm sure he was smirking.
