John Calipari is expected to be in California next weekend for a meeting with five-star recruit Bol Bol, his mother told the Herald-Leader on Sunday.

Bol — a 7-foot-3 power forward at Mater Dei (Calif.) — is ranked by Scout.com as the No. 2 overall recruit in the class of 2018. Five-star wing R.J. Barrett is the only player ranked ahead of Bol on that list, and Barrett was in Lexington earlier this month for his official visit to Kentucky.

Quickley — a 6-foot-3 prospect from Maryland — visited Kansas last week and is expected to visit UK next week. Miami is the only other school under consideration, and it’s unclear whether he will reschedule that trip.

UK remains the heavy favorite to land Quickley, who is ranked by Scout.com as the No. 8 overall prospect in the class of 2018.
