UK Coach John Calipari was back in his old hometown of Memphis to do a little recruiting Wednesday night.
Calipari watched sophomore power forward Dedric Lawson, who is considered the No. 5 overall prospect in the class by Rivals, Scout and ESPN. The 6-foot-8, 195-pound recruit has early offers from Memphis, Alabama and Louisiana State. His father, Keelon Lawson, told the Commercial Appeal earlier this month that his son’s recruitment “boils down” to Memphis and UK.
Dedric’s older brother, K.J. Lawson, is a five-star prospect in the Class of 2015 and has already committed to Memphis.
