John Calipari is about to have his second “in-person” look at Simi Shittu sometime during the fall recruiting period which starts this Saturday 9/9/2017. Simi Shittu, a five star forward from Vermont Academy is currently rated as the No. 8 overall player in the class of 2018 (according to 24/7 Sports Composite).
Vermont Academy’s first open gym practice will be held next Tuesday according to Head Coach, Alex Popp. Alex Popp, Vermont Academy’s Head Coach, has said that Shittu can guard all 5 positions on the floor at all times and loves to get into the gym early in the mornings and put up shots all of which Calipari likes.
Shittu’s final list consists of Kentucky, Arizona, Arizona State, New Mexico, Notre Dame, Oregon, South Carolina, Connecticut, and Vanderbilt.
His Head Coach has mentioned that if Shittu happened to find the right fit in the fall then he would likely commit, this makes you wonder that if this recruiting visit that John Calipari is about to take might include a scholarship offer from the Kentucky Wildcats Head Coach. Only time will tell.
