John Calipari will be in Las Vegas later this week to see one of his top recruiting targets in the Class of 2015.
Stephen Zimmerman — a 7-foot center — will get a visit from Calipari on Friday, his mother told the Herald-Leader. Rivals.com and Scout.com consider Zimmerman the No. 2 overall prospect in his class. He met with Louisville Coach Rick Pitino on Wednesday.
Lori Zimmerman said her son also has visits set up with Kansas and Arizona.
Stephen Zimmerman tweeted a photo Wednesday showing all of his recruiting letters from that day’s mail run. There were several dozen from hometown UNLV, and others from North Carolina, Indiana, LSU, Minnesota, Michigan, Kansas, Baylor, N.C. State and Miami.
Zimmerman is one of only six players in the Class of 2015 with a scholarship offer from Kentucky.
