John Calipari and his recruiting trail this week

John Calipari has been and will be a busy man this week. He and his assistant coaches are hitting the recruiting trail hard.

Quentin Grimes

was first on the list. He got his visit this past weekend. The College Park, Texas native is No. 13 overall in rankings. A point guard in the Class of 2018. Kansas is said to be the favorite in his recruitment but Cal wouldn’t waste his time if he wasn’t still involved.

According to Kyle Tucker of SEC country, Cal was suppose to visit

Zion Williamson

today but hurricane Irma canceled that visit. His mother did have this to say:

Sampson said her son will take an official visit to Lexington and “we’ll set one up soon.” per to Kyle Tucker.

So no worries on that front. He will most likely make a spring decision.

Keldon Johnson

was suppose to have his visit Wednesday but now it has been moved to today. Calipari will visit him in Virgina. He recently came to Kentucky and picked up an offer some after. He is a 5 star shooting guard out of Oak Hill Academy. Texas has been said to be the one to beat in his recruitment.

Simi Shittu

will get another visit from Cal on Tuesday morning at open gym in Vermont. One would assume he may get a Kentucky offer then if he impresses Cal. The No. 7 overall recruit in 2018 is from Canada.

Immanuel Quickley

will come to Kentucky on Friday to have his official visit. Many expect him to set a commitment not long after. He did however miss his Miami official visit due to hurricane Irma. There isn’t any word on whether he will take it now or not. He has been projected to commit to Kentucky for a long time. He also has Kansas on the list in which he took a visit to recently. He plans to make a decision before October.

The Herald-Leader was told Sunday night that Miami is trying hard to reschedule Quickley’s official visit, but there has been no final decision yet on that trip.

Calipari will travel to the West Coast to visit Bol Bol on Sunday, the day in which Quickley will leave. Kentucky seemed to have lost communication with him for a while but are obviously still involved. The No. 2 overall player in the rankings for the Class of 2018.

Busy days ahead for John Calipari and his staff.
