UK Coach John Calipari was in Louisiana on Wednesday afternoon to meet with Javonte Smart, who is considered by some analysts to be the No. 1 point guard in the class of 2018.
Smart — a 6-foot-3 prospect from Baton Rouge, La. — is ranked by Scout.com as the No. 1 point guard and No. 9 overall player in the 2018 class. Calipari visited Romeo Langford, the No. 1 shooting guard in the 2018 class, on Monday, and he saw Immanuel Quickley, the No. 2 point guard in the 2018 class, on Tuesday.
UK coaches were also expected in South Carolina to see Zion Williamson on Wednesday night, according to Scout.com’s Evan Daniels. Williamson — a 6-foot-7 wing — is ranked as the No. 2 overall recruit in the 2018 class.
