As of now, the most likely player Kentucky will get in the class of 2016 is five-star combo guard Kobi Simmons.
John Calipari has made it a point to see Simmons in person this week at the Nike EYBL Peach Jam, and Simmons will return the favor in August. That's when Simmons says he'll take his official visit to UK, and he knows the Cats have made him a priority in the 2016 class:
