Ben Roberts‏ @BenRobertsHL

Talked to @jerrymeyer247 about the subject of UK and recruiting shooters last season. Revisiting that with new numbers to back it up. Not as simple as, 'Hey, go sign that guy who shoots real nice.'


Quote
It’s no secret: this Kentucky basketball team isn’t very good from behind the three-point line.

These Cats rank last in the Southeastern Conference in three-point makes this season and have attempted almost 100 fewer threes than the league’s 13th team in that category, Georgia.

After Saturday’s win over Alabama — a game in which the Cats made four of 11 from behind the arc — only seven Division I teams in the country had made fewer threes this season than Kentucky.


This season’s team is on pace to be Calipari’s worst at UK in terms of both three-point percentage and three-point makes.

“Coach Cal has had shooters,” Meyer said at the time. “But I think shooting is lower on the value list than other traits for a (UK) prospect. Now, some of that’s just the way it is because very few players are complete players. And, typically, your five-star type players, your one-and-dones, if they have a weakness, most of the time it usually is shooting. They’re great athletes and they have other (ways to score).

“It’s not necessarily a criticism of Coach Calipari. Obviously, he’s a great coach and knows what he’s doing. Phenomenal recruiter. But, when you look at this (2017) class, and when you look at what has been a concern for Kentucky teams in the past, you can’t help but think about outside shooting.”

LOOK: Former Kentucky players joke about lack of seniors on Wildcats’ 2018 ‘senior night’


Quote
Traditionally, the last home game is also senior night. The only problem is that Kentucky doesn’t have any seniors on the team to honor this season.

The closest any player came was junior Jonny David and redshirt junior Dillon Pulliam.

John Calipari not sad about this news, I imagine.

How has Mike Krzyzewski overtaken John Calipari as the king of recruiting? I asked Duke's four McDonald's All-Americans.

Father of 5-star recruit Romeo Langford details rift with Kentucky coach John Calipari


Quote
When 5-star guard Romeo Langford announces his college choice this month, Kentucky won’t be among the finalists.

And it sounds like John Calipari and the Wildcats never wanted to be considered, either.

Langford’s father, Tim, detailed the story behind Kentucky not recruiting his son:

According to the eldest Langford, the rift started after he criticized Calipari’s coaching ability following the U-19 Team USA’s loss to Canada in the 2017 FIBA World Cup.

It was a game Romeo didn’t play in because of back spasms, but that didn’t stop the flow of criticism.

“I just told him, ‘You came in our house, said you couldn’t wait to coach our son and do this and that,'” Tim Langford recalled. “‘You had the opportunity before his back started bothering him. I didn’t appreciate it because you said you wanted to coach him and you had the chance to do it.'”

That was all it took for Calipari to move on.

Time for @TJWalkerKSR first article for KSR....the latest on KyKy Tandy of Hopkinsville, the first UK recruit from Kentucky that Calipari has been focused on in some time


Quote
Kentucky fans love Kentuckians and that would explain the hype surrounding Hopkinsville’s KyKy Tandy. The four-star scoring guard has a handful of offers and plenty of interest from UK, but the Cats haven’t pulled the trigger on an offer.

The harbinger of things to come like NBA announcements forthcoming:

John Calipari and his staff are visiting several 5-star prospects to open the spring recruiting period.


Quote
The spring basketball recruiting period opened Thursday, and that means Kentucky coach John Calipari was on the road. Here’s who the Wildcats are targeting in the Class of 2019.

Jones reported that Calipari is going to get back on the recruiting trail after deferring to his assistants and getting the results that come with that.

5-star former Auburn commit EJ Montgomery commits to Kentucky


Quote
Montgomery, a five-star power forward out of Marietta, Ga., committed to Kentucky on Monday. Montgomery announced his decision via an Instagram post.

"I'm rocking Kentucky blue," Montgomery posted with a picture of him wearing a No. 23 Kentucky jersey.

The post was a reference to the Drake and Future song "Scholarships."

The 6-foot-10, 200-pound Montgomery was previously committed to Auburn but backed off that pledge on Sept. 27, 2017, just a day after then-Auburn associate head coach Chuck Person was arrested in connection to the FBI's probe into the criminal influence of money on college basketball. Person was arrested and charged with eight federal counts after allegedly accepting $91,500 in bribes to use his influence over Auburn players Austin Wiley and Danjel Purifoy to try to steer them toward a crooked financial adviser.

Person's involvement in the investigation ultimately cost Wiley and Purifoy their eligibility for the 2017-18 season. Wiley was cleared to return next season, while Purifoy will regain his eligibility after sitting out 30 percent of the Tigers' games to start the year.

5-star Ashton Hagans on Kentucky commitment: ‘It’s what I’ve been waiting on’


Quote
Hagans joins 2018 5-star power forward E.J. Montgomery as elite commitments for the Wildcats this week. While Hagans is currently in the 2019 class, he could end up reclassifying to 2018 and helping UK as soon as next season.

Listed at 6-foot-4 from Covington, Ga, he’s currently the No. 1 point guard in the 2019 class.
