UK Coach John Calipari made recruiting stops in Mississippi and Texas on Friday to see two of UK’s top targets in the class of 2019.

Calipari watched five-star small forward D.J. Jeffries at the Lighthouse Classic in Mississippi, then saw Texas point guard Tyrese Maxey at the Thanksgiving Hoopfest in the Dallas area.

Jeffries — a 6-foot-7 prospect from Olive Branch, Miss. — is the No. 15 overall prospect in the 2019 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Maxey — a 6-3 point guard from Garland, Texas — is the No. 12 player in those rankings.

Both recruits already have scholarship offers from Kentucky.
