UK Coach John Calipari plans to see several top recruiting targets this weekend, the Herald-Leader has learned.
Calipari will be watching UK signee Tyrese Maxey as well as three five-star players in the 2020 class: highly touted guards RJ Hampton and Jalen Green, and star center N’Faly Dante. All three of the younger players already have scholarship offers from Kentucky, and all three have been mentioned in recruiting circles as possibilities to move to the 2019 class.
Green — a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from California — is the No. 2 overall prospect in the 2020 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Hampton — a 6-4 combo guard from Texas — is the No. 5 player in those rankings. Dante — a 6-11 prospect from Mali, now playing for a high school in Kansas — is the No. 9 overall player in the class.
