John Calipari has a new target for UK in the Class of 2021.

On Friday, Calipari offered a scholarship to Patrick Baldwin Jr., he announced on Twitter.

A five-star forward out of Hamilton High School in Wisconsin, Baldwin is ranked No. 2 overall in the 2021 class by 247 Sports composite, which measures all of the recruiting rankings.

Among the schools to offer the 6-8, 190-pound big man are the Duke Blue Devils, Florida Gators, Kansas Jayhawks, North Carolina Tar Heels and UCLA Bruins among others.

It’s pretty evident that everyone wants Baldwin, so it was only a matter of time until UK jumped into the fray. Perhaps UK’s success with recent Wisconsin product Tyler Herro could help with Baldwin.
