UK Coach John Calipari was in California on Wednesday for an in-school visit with Ivan Rabb.

Rabb — a 6-foot-10 forward in the Class of 2015 — received a UK scholarship offer over the weekend. He is considered the No. 3 overall prospect in the class, according to the new ESPN rankings released Wednesday.

Bishop O’Dowd Coach Lou Richie told the Herald-Leader that Calipari’s visit with Rabb went well. It was the UK coach’s first meeting with the 2015 star.

Richie told the Herald-Leader over the weekend that Rabb was excited by the UK scholarship offer.

“I think any time any kid is offered by Kentucky, it’s a stamp of approval,” he said. “It lets him know that his hard work is paying off and that he’s on the right course. Ivan is a very humble young man who’s excited by every offer, but a Kentucky offer is a little bit different.”

  1. I think that’s what Calipari has brought to the UK program is a feeling that every player out there wants to get an offer from the best recruiter and school in the world of CBB. So that’s what happens now, that when a top player gets a visit or a call from Calipari they then know, that they have made, all of that hard work they have put in on their game was successful.
