Visit season is upon us with basketball recruiting, and it looks like John Calipari will be busy early next week with in-home visits, according to Adam Zagoria.

Lewis and Igiehon are two of Kentucky’s remaining targets in the 2019 recruiting class. Kentucky has been thought to be one of Lewis’ top options, but Florida and Villanova (who just landed Lewis’s high school and AAU teammate Bryan Antoine) have a lot of momentum with one of the top guards/wings left in the class.
The Gators are actually looking like the favorite for Lewis right now.
Igiehon has been kind of a puzzling recruitment. It is still uncertain if he has a Kentucky offer, though he said that he does, and Kentucky is among his final four schools. Kentucky still has its sights set on the Big 3 big men in the class, James Wiseman, Vernon Carey Jr., and Matthew Hurt, but Igiehon is a talented big man as well who will be an impact player at the collegiate level.
Nonetheless, more news of visits will continue to come out and expect to hear a lot about Kentucky with their top remaining targets in the next few weeks.
While Calipari is working to add to an already-stacked 2019 class, he’s also going to see guys who are already committed, including Kahlil Whitney:
John Calipari will be paying Kahlil Whitney an in-home visit Sunday, and will be meeting the grandparents. A nice touch on National Grandparents Day. @KentuckyRivals @RowlandRIVALS @chanel_tillmon @KahlilWhitney— David Sisk (@CoachDavidSisk) September 6, 2018
Whitney has soared up the recruiting rankings this summer, and that came not long after the five-star wing picked Kentucky back in August. We haven’t heard much about Calipari or his staff seeing Whitney since then, though that’s because there’s been a dead period that’s kept coaches from seeing recruits, even if they’re committed.
