Julius Randle’s high school coach had some very positive things to say about John Calipari’s at home visit with the #1 player in the 2013 class. In fact, he said that out of all of the coaches that have visited with Randle, that Cal was the one he was most comfortable with, which is a huge statement.
He also said that Randle is not afraid of the rock star status at Kentucky and that attention actually draws him to Lexington even more.
Here is a bit what coach Mayberry had to say about Cal and Randle:
There are a few coaches that Julius is willing to confide in, and that he reaches out to with questions,” Mayberry said, “But, I think that Calipari is by far the one that Julius is most comfortable with. Comfort in his recruitment is going to be huge, so I think that’s great that Julius and John (Calipari) have that type of early relationship.
Sounding better and better with Randle.
UConn Huskies coach Jim Calhoun is calling it a career. It comes at a a good time as Calhoun’s health is in question with a recurring back problem. Not to mention that UConn will not be able to participate in the NCAA tournament due to academic failures. Kevin Ollie is set to replace the man that put UConn basketball on the map.
We will always remember Calhoun for being an avid Calipari hater and an all around jerk.
Happy trails to you.
Good news football fans! CoShik Williams is healthy and will start on Saturday. Raymond Sanders was the starter last week rushing for 115 yards and a touchdown. Johnathan George also had six carries for 52 yards and a touchdown. Kentucky’s offensive line and rushing attack has been one of the bright spots on the much improved offense. WKU will provide some challenges as they have the ability to cause turnovers.
