According to Chris Fisher of 247sports, Kenny Payne went to visit Bol Bol on Tuesday at his high school. For a while Kentucky was off the radar for Bol Bol after being cut from Team USA. One of his close friends Shareef O’Neil has already committed to Arizona and that seemed to be his likely landing spot until the recent scandal. Although he hasn’t spoken or taken Arizona and USC off his list in which were both involved, things are looking up for Kentucky.
His mother is said be still looking for an answer to why he was dropped from Team USA, so hopefully Kenny Payne eased some of that wonder. However, Calipari did not make that decision alone to cut him. But the fact that Payne played with Bol’s father on the 76ers in the past can’t hurt another visit.
Bol Bol is also slated to visit for Big Blue Madness this month.
