UK Coach John Calipari was in Georgia on Wednesday to visit with five-star point guard Sharife Cooper, according to USA Today recruiting reporter Jason Jordan.

Cooper — a 6-foot-1 prospect in the class of 2020 — was the second point guard from that group to land a UK scholarship offer, joining Virginia native Jeremy Roach, who is sidelined for his junior season with a torn ACL.
