It looks like John Calipari may be close to landing his second commitment of the 2016 class. With big man Sacha Killeya-Jones already on board, there are still a number of elite recruits in the mix for the Kentucky Wildcats. One of those is five star combo guard Kobi Simmons.
Simmons is a natural point guard, but John Calipari has offered two more point guards in the class, De'Aaron Fox and Dennis Smith, Jr. Even so, Calipari is still recruiting Simmons hard according to his father.
Kentucky, UNLV, Georgia, and Ohio State have made the final cut for Simmons and he hopes to take visits to all of those schools, but Kentucky will be the first visit for him:

How does he stack up according to the ranking services?
24/7: #15 overall, #3 point guard
ESPN: #18 overall, #4 point guard
Scout: #18 overall, #6 point guard
This will be interesting to watch going forward. The 2016 class is loaded with extremely talented guards. I am sure they will be paying attention to how Tyler Ulis, Isaiah Briscoe, and Jamal Murray work together this season.
Simmons plans on making his decision as early as next month.
