John Calipari on the Recruiting Trail [UPDATED]

New, comments

So it begins.

Coach Calipari has visited C.J. Leslie this week and his apparently heading out to Los Angeles with John Wall for the Wooden Award ceremonies.  Out there, he will reportedly visit Terrence Jones, another UK target.

For the record, and in the order of importance, here are are the players I would really like to see Kentucky get this spring:

  1. Brandon Knight -- Outstanding one-guard talent is nothing but a winner.  Can shoot the three, get to the rack, finish, handle and pass.  A+ student.  What's not to like?

  2. C.J. Leslie -- Ridiculously long and athletic combo forward who can shoot it with range and rebounds like he weighs 250 instead of 205.

  3. Terrence Jones -- Outstanding, athletic forward who can face or post.  Has a terrific handle and is the prototype for a DDM forward.

  4. Doron Lamb -- Solid, athletic combo guard who can comfortably run the point for short periods.  has a sweet stroke that will only get better.

  5. Josh Selby -- Athletic freak who can score from anywhere.  Almost always the most dynamic player on the floor.  Finishes at the rim, and can get his own shot anytime.

  6. Terrence Ross -- Big, long 2-guard prospect who can shoot it with range and has the length and feet to be a good, multiple-position defender.

It's time to reload, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation.  Coach Cal is on the case, and in this part of the coaching game, he is simply the best, period.  Get ready to welcome some hot new blue-bloods.

Note:  Instead of starting a new post, I'm just going to update this one with today's recruiting news.  The updates follow the jump.  Keep an eye on my Twitter account for even more updates.
