John Calipari showed up at the Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass., on Sunday afternoon to check out Moses Brown and other basketball recruits in the 2018 and 2019 classes.
Brown — a 7-footer from Bronx, N.Y. — is one of the top centers in the class of 2018, and Calipari also visited him in November and watched him play last month. Other than Zion Williamson, who will announce his college decision Jan. 20, Brown has been the only recruit on Calipari’s 2018 radar in recent months, though he does not yet have a scholarship offer from the Wildcats.
Bryan Antoine and Scottie Lewis — two of UK’s top targets in the class of 2019 — are also scheduled to play at the Hoophall Classic on Sunday. The Monday slate of games includes UK signees Immanuel Quickley and Keldon Johnson, as well as top-ranked 2019 prospect Vernon Carey, who has an early offer from UK.
