John Calipari hit Twitter on Tuesday night to reminisce about his early days on the recruiting trail and say that he was spending some time in Washington, D.C.
He’ll have plenty of company in our nation’s capital.
Several top UK recruiting targets are also in D.C. for the Nike Global Challenge, which starts Wednesday and runs through Sunday. The event is comprised of four American squads and teams from Africa, France, Brazil and Canada.
The second of three evaluation periods this month starts Wednesday at 5 p.m., and it’s a pretty good bet that Calipari is in town for recruiting purposes.
Among the UK prospects expected to play in the Global Challenge are Stanley Johnson, Tyus Jones, Rashad Vaughn, Devin Booker and Angel Delgado.
The Under Armour Summer Jam also begins Wednesday in Milwaukee, and it’s likely UK will have a presence at that event. Cliff Alexander, Jahlil Okafor, Myles Turner, Derrick Jones and Stephen Zimmerman are among the UK recruits expected to participate in the Summer Jam.
