Moses Brown is making it pretty clear he’d like to join the Kentucky Wildcats.
Brown was just visited by John Calipari, who apparently made quite an impression on the five-star center from New York.
Calipari hasn’t shown much interest in Brown over the past few months, mostly because he was working harder on fellow 2018 big men Simi Shittu and Bol Bol.
However, it looks like those two top-10 recruits will end up elsewhere. That’s why Calipari is circling back to another talented big man in 2018, which happens to be Brown, and it just so happens that Brown really likes Kentucky.
Ben Roberts of the Lexington Herald-Leader was able to interview Moses’ father, Malcolm Brown, following Calipari’s trip to New York. Malcolm made it pretty clear his son would love to end up in Lexington.
Brown’s father repeated the words “dream school” multiple times when talking about his son’s interest in Kentucky, and — despite Calipari’s relative silence during the weeks preceding Sunday’s visit — there were plenty of kind words for both the Wildcats’ program and UK’s coach.
“It’s just a legendary place to play,” Malcolm Brown said. “All the kids are excited about Kentucky, the bright lights, the big stage. And he’s very competitive and he wants to be around the best.
This recruitment is moving fast, but it doesn’t appear Brown will be able to visit Kentucky in time to make a decision before the early signing period ends on Nov. 15.
There’s also the fact that Bol has yet to formally announce his college decision. Everyone assumes it’s Oregon, but there’s no such thing as a done deal until the words come out of a recruit’s mouth.
Even so, it sounds like Kentucky is in a great spot with Brown if he scores a scholarship offer.
